The 2017 Annual Report has recently been finalized, offering an overview of SWA’s main achievements. 2017 was another full year for SWA,
consolidating our work, but also stretching out into new areas that support our mission. It stood out for our partners’ commitment to increasing and strengthening collaborative work at the country level, an approach that will continue to guide us in the future. Significantly, five new countries joined SWA this year, and we saw record numbers of partners engaging in our virtual exchange platforms: 475 participants from 68 countries joined our 2017 webinars.
"I have been inspired by feedback from SWA partner countries indicating that ministers, upon returning to their capitals, advocated to bring sanitation, water and hygiene to the centre of national development priorities among Heads of States, government leadership and other stakeholders."
- The Hon. Kevin Rudd, SWA Chair
