14:55 to 15:55

Water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) is closely linked to the Green Deal, contributing to human development, climate resilience and economies. It is a human right and critical to preventing disease and death. Yet billions of people still do not have access to safe WASH.

This session will explore how innovations – whether technology, business models or policy – can play a game changing role in the WASH sector to achieve SDG 6 targets, reach those left behind, and to meet future challenges with greater inclusion, resilience and sustainability.

High-Level panelists will discuss how innovations like circular sanitation economies and climate resilient infrastructure, paired with governance, technology and investments, can reduce water scarcity, improve sanitation and build a more sustainable future.
