Ending business as usual – a bold vision for closing Sustainable Development Goals' financing gaps

A step change in resourcing for Sustainable Development Goal 6 – Clean Water and Sanitation – and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development

This session will highlight the urgent need for increased public finance for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in low-income countries. WaterAid propose new obligations on the international community to fund sustainable development. It believes a radical shift in global economic structures is required to ensure universal inclusion in WASH – water, sanitation and hygience – services by 2030, and to meaningfully imbue drivers of equality into international finance. Participants will discuss the best ways forward to finance the SDGs, with a focus on SDG6, and to ensure that essential services are targeted to women and girls and other marginalised groups. This session aims to start an open discussion on financing the SDGs and the role of EU aid.
