Conference / Workshop
Online ADB Sanitation Dialogue 2021
Organizer: Asian Development Bank, Federal Ministry of Finance Austria, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, State Secretariat for Economic Affairs, Rockefeller Foundation, Urban Climate Change Resilience Trust Fund, UK Aid

The Online ADB Sanitation Dialogue 2021 (ASD 2021) is the prime platform for sanitation practitioners, decision-makers and policymakers, and development partners to convene and discuss the challenges, solutions, and strategies that will lead to systemic change toward inclusive sanitation. Adapting to the new normal, this event has been designed as a series of webinars and interactive workshops over the course of two weeks.

The Online ADB Sanitation Dialogue 2021 (ASD 2021) focuses on the theme of “Accelerating Inclusive Sanitation”. The online event will gather representatives of ADB developing member countries, ADB specialists and project officers, and other decision-makers and development partners to discuss the latest sanitation strategies and tools, technical options, including new technologies and alternatives, integrating resilience, as well as ways to tap financing and leverage partnerships.

As the fourth edition of the dialogue, ASD 2021 aims to amplify awareness on citywide inclusive sanitation (CWIS), a systemic approach based on equity, safety, and sustainability. To avoid the unwelcome 2030 scenario of leaving people behind without adequate sanitation, this conference will focus strongly on practical solutions, addressing bottlenecks, and building capacity to reinforce the motivation for sanitation for all.
