AquaFed at 28th UN-Water meeting

AquaFed attended the 28th UN-Water Meeting convened from 1-2 February 2018, in Rome, Italy, at the headquarters of the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD).


Approximately fifty delegates of UN-Water Members and Partners registered for the event, representing the UN Secretariat and UN agencies, funds, programs and other entities, multilateral environmental agreements, and civil society organizations. An additional twenty observers from governments and other organizations attended. AquaFed attended UN-Water meeting as official partner.


The meeting discussed upcoming high-level events and report launches related to water and sanitation policy and practice, including the implementation of Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 6 (clean water and sanitation). We feel that AquaFed can do a lot to help UN and other multilateral organisations and countries itself to achieve the goals and reach the SDG targets and to help finding best ways to measuring progress.
