2017 Finance and Sector Ministers' Meetings

SWA has the pleasure to announce that the 2017 Finance Ministers’ Meeting will take place in April 2017 in Washington DC, at the time of the World Bank’s Spring Meetings.

Ministers of finance and development cooperation will discuss financing universal access to water, sanitation and hygiene. Together, they will consider the political, institutional and governance reforms needed to make better use of existing funding and for attracting additional resources. An invitation will be sent to ministers in the coming months.

Ministers responsible for water, sanitation and hygiene accompanying their finance counterparts will also hold ministerial dialogues – Sector Ministers’ Meeting – to discuss the steps they are taking to mobilize and efficiently use resources.
