ABOUT EVENT

The main objectives of the Conference are to raise awareness about the timely and effective implementation of the SDG6 and other water-related SDGs and to discuss the way forward with implementation of activities of the Water Decade Action Plan, 2018-2028 at the global, regional and country levels.

The Conference is intended to continue and enrich discussions of the High-Level Launch Event of the International Decade for Action “Water for Sustainable Development”, 2018-2028, called upon by the President of the 72-nd session of the UNGA in New York on World Water Day, 22 March 2018.   It will provide a timely and necessary platform for developing recommendations on acceleration and strengthening efforts towards achieving water-related SDGs and targets in the run-up to the next session of the High-Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development, where, among other issues, SDG 6 “Ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all” will be discussed.

The Conference will also focus  on the ways on how the Member States, relevant UN bodies, the specialized agencies, the regional commissions and other organizations of the UN system, as well as other relevant partners, including the private sector can contribute to the Decade in order to support the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. It will also allow for discussion on the importance of specific means of implementation, including monitoring, financing, capacity development, access to technology and innovation, fostering partnership with the private sector and civil society.
