BRIEFING NOTE: Stockholm World Water Week

Abstract

In August 2015, SHARE took part in the jubilee Stockholm World Water Week, an event that brought together nearly 3000 experts, practitioners, decision-makers, and business innovators to exchange ideas, foster new thinking and develop solutions to the most pressing water-related challenges of today. This note summarises SHARE's participation, co-convening three sessions that shone the spotlight on research, as well as examples from policy and programming, that are helping characterise and overcome sector barriers. The three events were:

  • Water, gender and distress: social equity in the post-Millennium Development Goal (MDG) landscape
  • WASH in nutrition: strategic and operational solutions to fight undernutrition
  • Scaling-up sanitation microfinance: what will it take?

In addition, Eiljah Wanda of the Mzuzu Centre for Excellence in Sanitation Water, a SHARE Malawi partner, presented the Centre’s work on private sector involvement on sanitation provision.
