Video recordings and presentations from the most recent SWA webinar are now available for download. The fourth webinar in the Post-2017 High-level Meetings (HLMs) series focused on financing the water, sanitation and hygiene-related targets of the SDGs and included presentations from Burundi and the World Bank.
The preparations for the 2017 HLMs underscored the importance of understanding the magnitude for the challenge to achieve the SDGs. Most countries have identified their investment needs and funding gap for the SDGs and many are planning to develop or strengthen strategies to close the funding gap and sustainably finance the sector. This webinar elaborated the various options for financing the SDGs and showcased the strategies and efforts of governments and development partners working together to build sustainable financing strategies.
Topics of past webinars included monitoring and planning. The upcoming and last webinar in this cycle will be on “Sustainable financing for sanitation and hygiene” (24-25 October). It will focus primarily on financing strategies for sanitation. Several countries have identified sanitation as the most ambitious and challenging of the WASH-related SDG targets, including building sustainable financing strategies to allow this goal to be met.
