SWA 2020 Asia and the Pacific Finance Ministers' Meeting
2 December 2020 at 2:00 New York | 14:00 Bangkok
The first SWA Asia and the Pacific Finance Ministers’ Meeting (FMM) will be held virtually on 2 December. It builds on previous global Finance Ministers Meetings organized by SWA in 2010, 2012, 2014 and 2017.
The objective of the SWA Asia and the Pacific FMM is to develop and strengthen partnerships with finance ministers in the region for smart investments in water, sanitation and hygiene. The meetings will underscore the crucial role of water, sanitation and hygiene to the Asian economy, population and environment during and after COVID-19, and will offer ministers practical avenues for financing the sector.
The 2-hour SWA Asia and the Pacific FMM will be live-streamed and simultaneous translated in English and French.
The SWA Asia and the Pacific FMM is preceded by a 2-month preparatory process that will rely on multi-stakeholder dialogue at country level to ensure that finance and sector ministers are briefed and ready to actively participate in the FMM.
