The 1st World Summit on Leaving No One Behind


The theme for this first edition is: « Human Rights Based Solutions for Access to Water and Sanitation ». The main goal of the event is to bring governance leaders and funding agencies together.

The structure of the summit invites innovative research through a competitive call for abstracts through our combined technical networks, culminating in a prestigious Awards Dinner. The following day provides a more dynamic platform for bringing real projects and funders together in an engaging manner. Importantly, the outcome will set off a stream of chosen projects that can help to solve some of the challenges for the people that are being left behind in the least developed countries. These projects and tangible outcomes will be presented as workable solutions at forthcoming high-level events.

Participants from the World Youth Parliament for Water will be present.

Organized by Water Lex and sponsored by WaterLex, IRWA, WIPO, Valser and the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC).
