by | Dec 1, 2016 | Blogs

Wow, we’ve just finished a fantastic End Water Poverty (EWP)/ Sanitation and Water for All (SWA) civil society regional meeting in Latin America! We’ve been working together with a diverse range organisations over the past 2 days – discussing opportunities and challenges for the region, how we can strengthen our connections and working together, and how to deepen the engagement with EWP and SWA in the future. Such energy and passion in the room was truly inspiring! An outcomes report will be shared soon with our collective action plan and timeline for ensuring a strong civil society in WASH.

Thanks to all our partners and members for coming together for this important gathering. This features as part of a series of regional events that EWP and SWA have been holding throughout the year to deepen regional networks and to help build stronger civil society coalitions and presence. It’s been a fantastic time, and we look forward to continuing this momentum. Thanks also to all who helped and contributed!
