Sunday 28 August | 14.00-15.30 | Room: NL Pillar Hall

Sanitation and Water for All (SWA) will host a multi-stakeholder dialogue on the Follow-up and Review process for Goal 6.

The event will provide an opportunity for discussion about the ways that SWA, as a partnership and through its partners, can contribute to the Follow-up and Review of the sanitation, water and hygiene-related targets of Goal 6 of the SDGs, and related targets of other SDGs. 

This event will provide an opportunity to discuss Follow-up and Review of progress on issues such as the elimination of inequalities in access to water and sanitation. SWA partners will present their understanding of the “Collaborative Behaviours” being promoted by SWA to increase development effectiveness in the water, sanitation and hygiene sector, how these will be monitored, and how they relate to the Follow-up and Review process. 

SWA partners, together with other water sector bodies and networks, will also present possible collaborative frameworks for the Follow-up and Review of the entirety of Goal 6.
