Round Table Discussion on The Philippines Water Sector: Gaps and Opportunities
March 20, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 2:00 pm PST
In line with the observance of World Water Day (WWD) which is celebrated on the 22nd of March each year, the Department for International Trade of the British Embassy in partnership with the Society for the Conservation of Philippine Wetlands, Inc. is conducting a Round Table Discussion (RTD) on “The Philippines Water Sector: Gaps and Opportunities” on 20 March 2019 at the Joy Nostalg Hotel Manila on ADB Ave., Ortigas Center, Pasig City.
BThis multi-stakeholder dialogue aims to enhance relationships among key Philippine oversight agencies on water, private sector, civil society organisations, academe, development partners, and water-end users by sharing what each one is currently doing and in the process identify areas of opportunities for fruitful collaboration.
The theme for this year’s WWD is “Leaving no one behind”, highlighting the central promise of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development that, as sustainable development progresses, everyone must benefit. SDG 6 includes a target to ensure availability and sustainable management of water for all by 2030 and this means leaving no one behind. To achieve this target, there is a need for a concerted effort among the actors in the water sector to pursue initiatives that will deliver this result.
