At World Water Week 2018, iDE along with WASH colleagues called for integrated financial systems to deliver water and sanitation solutions in the poorest locations.

 

To meet the Sustainable Development Goal for clean water (SDG 6, Ensure access to water and sanitation for all), we need smart(er) systems that integrate finance and market-based product delivery is necessary.

As part of this year’s World Water Week in Stockholm, Yi Wei, iDE Global WASH Director, co-hosted a joint session called “Smart(er) systems for water and sanitation: subsidies, financing, and markets” alongside Joel Kolker, Program Manager for Global Water Supply and Sanitation Partnership (GWSP) of the World Bank, Vedika Bhandarkar, Managing Director of Water.org India, Hon. Mansour Faye, Senegal’s Minister of Water and Sanitation, Eng. Benson Ajisegiri, Nigeria’s Director of Water Supply and PPPs, Ministry of Water Resources, and Social Finance.
