ROOM

Room 19

DESCRIPTION

[PP-LRA-05]

Urban service providers supply over half of the global population with basic services, including water and sanitation. However, local governments in many regions of the world lack technical, institutional and financial capacity to provide basic and universal water services, not leaving anyone behind. The breakout session will explore how local governments can work with all stakeholders, and learn from one another, in order to develop capacity on water-sensitive governance and ensure that water and sanitation services are provided on a universal basis with a quality and sustainability that limits the impact on the environment.
