How to mobilize sustainable financing and implement the 3T model while respecting all the dimensions of the human rights to water and sanitation? How to convince Governments and general public that for every €/$ spent on water services, economic and social and health benefits yield multiples? What are the appropriate frameworks and best practices to be put in place at institutional and societal level to help achieve the goals of water and sanitation services for everyone, forever, everywhere; (and most disadvantaged/discriminated first);
