The upcoming SWA Finance Ministers’ Meeting (FMM) will be convened in Washington, D.C. USA, on April 17, 2020. The objective of the FMM is to highlight practical actions that finance ministers can take to mobilize additional financing through increased cost recovery, better planning, and improved efficiency to deliver universal access to water supply and sanitation. This will be achieved by presenting evidence, practical experience and active dialogue between participants.
Unique in the sector, the FMMs are the culmination of robust ongoing strategic dialogue at country level, involving multiple stakeholders bound together by the belief that good governance and mutual accountability are key to achieve water and sanitation for all, always and everywhere.
This year’s FMM will be the fifth edition of the event, which is complemented by the regular SWA Sector Ministers’ Meetings (SMMs). The last FMM was hosted by the World Bank during their Spring Meetings in April 2017 and the last SMM was hosted by the government of Costa Rica in April 2019, co-convened by UNICEF and the Inter-American Development Bank.
