The SWA Secretariat will participate in a capacity development workshop organized by UNICEF on the enabling environment for the WASH sector in Swaziland on May 15-17.
The objective of the workshop is to establish a common understanding of the implications of the SDGs for planning, financing and monitoring; and to provide introductory training in tools that can be used to improve the enabling environment for WASH.
Participants will include senior government officials and including other partners from Comoros, Lesotho, Namibia and Swaziland. This workshop will provide an opportunity for SWA to present the SWA framework, share outcomes of the previous Sector and Finance Ministers Meetings and introduce the updated accountability mechanism.
It will provide an opportunity to address the obstacles that prevent progress towards achieving the WASH SDGs and encourage participants to develop clear steps for mobilizing political will and action to achieve the goals.
