Contexte In July 2018, the High Level Political Forum concluded that the world is not on track to achieve the global SDG 6 targets by 2030 at the current rate of progress. Switzerland, having a very dynamic water expertise and strong experience, is strongly positioned to participate actively in the acceleration of the water-related 2030 Agenda. For this, the strengthening of partnerships is necessary to join forces, increase exchange of knowledge, stimulate cross-sectoral innovations, and create leverages for upscaling of interventions.
Objectifs Stimulated and pooled Swiss knowhow and expertise contribute to improve living conditions in developing and transition countries through enhanced water security.
