Innovate. Collaborate. Transform.

Ensuring access to water and sanitation for all, is one of the United Nations key Sustainable Development Goals, and although progress has been made only 73 percent of the world’s population has access to safely managed drinking water.

Investments in infrastructure and sanitation facilities; protection and restoration of water- related ecosystems; and hygiene education are among the steps necessary to ensure universal access to safe and affordable drinking water for all by 2030, and improving water-use efficiency is key to reducing water stress.

Against this backdrop, the Strategic Conference provides a forum for leaders and policymakers to collaboratively shape strategies and accelerate solutions that will safeguard regional water security to ensure future prosperity for the Arab world.
