Post-2017 HLM follow-up


Untitled

 

In April 2017, SWA gathered together 60 ministers responsible for water, sanitation and hygiene along with representatives from all constituencies o the SWA partnership. During the meeting participants discussed the challenges facing the achievement of the SDGs and exchange learning and solutions.  After the meeting, SWA’s Chair issued a call to action addressed to all countries and constituencies to; develop sector financing strategies, assess and strengthen the Building Blocks of an effective sector and to streamline disaster prevention and preparedness into sector coordination.

The SWA Secretariat is continuing to facilitate exchanges across the partnership to:

  • Encourage a robust follow-up on the discussions and outcomes of the HLMs;
  • Support ongoing country processes aimed at putting in place or strengthening the Building Blocks and at applying the SWA Collaborative Behaviors;
  • Strengthen government-led, multi-stakeholder engagement to catalyze progress on planning, financing and review of the SDGs;
  • Identify, document and share experiences by partners to stimulate learning.

 

The SWA secretariat as part of the ongoing High-level Political Dialogue (HLPD) has organized a series of webinars and is continuing to hold bilateral calls with countries to support ongoing multi-stakeholder country dialogues.  The HLPD process is aimed at fostering strategic engagements and dialogue which can lead to sustained change and progress.  

SWA has also presented ideas on what countries and partners can do to follow-up on the HLMs including:

  • Continue to with strategic multi-stakeholder dialogue on SDG planning, implementation and review and specifically focusing on the Building Blocks and Collaborative Behaviours;
  • Engage relevant actors including ministers of finance and those responsible for water, sanitation and hygiene in regular inter-ministerial dialogues;
  • Conduct joint advocacy activities to increase country level political engagement using, among others, budget discussions, and global moments related to water sanitation and hygiene such as Global Handwashing Day, World Toilet Day and the High-level Political Forum in 2018.

PAST WEBINARS

Strengthening country monitoring and review systems for the SDGs (23-24 August)

As countries continue to align their national and sector plans to the SDGs, the time is ripe to build and/or strengthen systems for monitoring and reviewing progress towards the goals. This webinar followed the release of the first progress report on the SDG water, sanitation and hygiene targets (6.1 and 6.2). It provided a platform for countries and partners to discuss their systems for assessing, monitoring and reviewing progress towards the SDGs.

Sustainable financing for SDG strategies (25-26 September)

The preparations for the 2017 High-level Meetings underscored the importance of understanding the magnitude for the challenge to achieve the SDGs. Most countries have identified their investment needsand funding gap for the SDGs and many are planning to develop or strengthen strategies to close the funding gap and sustainably finance the sector. This webinar will elaborate the various options for financing the SDGs and showcase the strategies and efforts of governments and development partners working together to build sustainable financing strategies.

Sustainable financing for sanitation and hygiene (24-25 October)

This webinar will focus primarily on financing strategies for sanitation. Several countries have identified sanitation as the most ambitious and challenging of the WASH-related SDG target and this webinar will focus on building sustainable financing strategies to allow this goal to be met.
