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’s publication and associated Sanitation and Water conference are funded by AusAID, 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.
The International WaterCentre is committed to helping achieve the Millennium Development Goals and is one of the founding members of the Water and Sanitation Reference Group.
The Water and Sanitation Reference Group comprises representatives from WaterAID Australia, World Vision Australia, OxFam, the Institute of Sustainable Futures and many other organisations that come together to share perspectives and valuable experiences, to develop proposals and solutions, and to raise the profile of this human tragedy.
