The publication, titled “Meeting the Sanitation and Water Challenge in South-East Asia and the Pacific” has been compiled for the purpose of keeping the issues of water and sanitation high on national and international agendas. It is a report of the actions discussed by the participants who gathered at the Sanitation and Water Conference held in Melbourne in 2009 as part of Australia’s contribution to the International Year of Sanitation.
The publication captures and presents ten key strategies identified by the participants in their Conference Statement. It aims to disseminate the messages of the conference and to provide a useful resource document for the water and sanitation sector.
This International WaterCentre publication and associated Sanitation and Water conference are funded by AusAID (now DFAT), the Australian Government’s international development agency, and reflects the work of a team of dedicated non-government organisations and research institutions who are working together to enhance Australian-based sanitation and water initiatives overseas.
