IWA to moderate high-level UNICEF panel

Each year, the European Development Days (EDDs) bring the development community together to share ideas and experiences in ways that inspire new partnerships and innovative solutions to the world’s most pressing challenges.

On Tuesday, 15 June, UNICEF will host a High Level Panel at the EDDs on WASH Innovations for Inclusive Growth. The session will be moderated by Prof Kalanithy Vairavamoorthy, Executive Director of the International Water Association. The session will explore how innovations – whether technology, business models or policy – can play a game changing role in the WASH sector to achieve SDG 6 targets, reach those left behind, and to meet future challenges with greater inclusion, resilience and sustainability.

Speakers at the session will include:

  • UNICEF Executive Director Henrietta H. Fore
  • His Excellency Jakaya Kikwete, former President of Tanzania and Chair, Global Water Partnership Africa
  • Florika Fink-Hooijer, Director-General for Environment, European Commission
  • Brian Arbogast, Director, Water, Sanitation & Hygiene for the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation
  • Isabella Villanueva, EDD Youth Leader and President, CEUS Chile
  • Carolina Tornesi MacKinnon, President, Youth Parliament for Water

Please join us for this rich discussion on the intersection of WASH, innovation, and development.
