The conference will deliberate on prevailing financing challenges in Kenya's water and sanitation sector and identify lessons on enhancing the bankability of WASH initiatives. Furthermore, the sessions will provide a platform for WASH SMEs and companies to learn about financing opportunities and gain insights as to how to strengthen their investment proposals. The conference will also feature success stories and case studies from funders, financiers and entrepreneurs who have successfully employed innovative financing models. Finally, there will be opportunities for financiers and WASH businesses to network, which is expected to lead to new partnerships.
WASH is a fundamental human right, and access to these services is essential for achieving the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), including SDG 3 (Good Health and Well-being), SDG 6 (Clean Water and Sanitation), and SDG 10 (Reduced Inequalities). Therefore, investing in WASH infrastructure and services is critical for ensuring a healthy and sustainable future for communities, countries, and the world at large.
