IWA Water and Development Congress & Exhibition 2017
The transformation in water and sanitation services set in motion by the adoption of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) could be revolutionary for the water sector, but where will the money needed come from? Can micro-finance support the SDG6 drinking water and sanitation targets? Guang Zhe Chen, Senior Director of Water Global Practice at the World Bank, will deliver a keynote addressing how new forms of micro-finance and other collaborative financial initiatives could fill in the SDG funding gap.
Registration is open. Plan your attendance timely!
