The Sanitation and Water for All Global High Level Meetings
The Sanitation and Water for All (SWA) High Level Meetings (HLM) bring together Ministers of Finance from developing countries, ministers of development cooperation from donor countries and high-level representatives from development banks and other donor institutions to address the lack of priority given to sanitation and water as a development intervention, the poor targeting of aid in the sector, and the need for robust planning and institutions.
