ADBI-Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Roundtable on Sanitation and Development

20 April 2021 to 21 April 2021

 

Sanitation gaps are a global problem that continues to affect large segments of developing Asia and the Pacific, despite the considerable progress of efforts to address it in recent decades. The COVID-19 crisis has further increased the importance of improving inclusive sanitation access and the lives of targeted users, especially across poor areas and vulnerable groups.

This interactive ADBI-Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation roundtable, organized in collaboration with the Institute for Fiscal Studies, will be moderated by an experienced TV presenter and assess the outlook for sanitation services delivery, financing, and its socioeconomic impacts in the region via a TV show format suitable for a mainstream, non-technical audience.

Objectives
  • Examine outstanding challenges to clean water and sanitation access in developing Asia and the Pacific
  • Identify evidence-based solutions for accelerating inclusive and sustainable sanitation delivery in underserved areas of the region
  • Highlight the potential socioeconomic impacts of greater sanitation development, with a focus on public health, education, gender equality, employment, and migration
