Members of the Household Water Treatment and Safe Storage (HWTS) network will be hosting several interesting events at World Water Week in Stockholm this year. The annual international event will take place August 28-September 2. The Network events include:
Accelerating Development by Building a Prosperous Environment for WaSH. Through a lively interaction session, governments, NGOs and the private sector will share concrete examples of collaboration that are leading to sustainable water, hygiene and sanitation solutions to alleviate poverty, build government capacity and provide a return on business investment. The informational poster for this event can be found here and further details on the event can be found here. This event is being convened by P&G Children’s Safe Drinking Water Program, Grundfos and World Vision. It will take place at the Aulan Auditorium, Stockholm City Centre, August 30 from 4:00pm to 5:30pm. If you have any questions, contact Greg Allgood at [email protected].
The Business of Sustainable Water & Sanitation for the Poor. Achieving SDG6, universal access to sanitation and water by 2030, requires a business ecosystem in which low-income consumers can purchase aspirational toilet facilities and household water treatment technologies at affordable prices. Technological innovations, local entrepreneurs and powerful partnerships have put this goal within our grasp; how do we overcome barriers and accelerate to scale? Attend this event to hear success stories and be part of an engaging discussion. Further details on the event can be found here. This event is being convened by Antenna Technologies Foundation, Swiss Water Partnership and Toilet Board Coalition. It will take place at the NL Music Hall August 28, from 9:00am to 10:30am. If you have any questions, contact Fanny Boulloud at [email protected].
Monitoring Safely Managed Drinking-water Services in the 2030 Agenda.
