11-15 October 2010, Water: Crisis and Choices - ADB and Partners Conference 2010, Manila, Philippines.
GWP Executive Secretary Dr Ania Grobicki, GWP Patron Margaret Catley-Carlson will participate in the ADB conference and GWP Southeast Asia is co-convening an Expert Group meeting with ESCAP and will also have a booth.
This year's conference is about water partnerships. The organisers say: "The global water sector has witnessed many water partnerships in the last few decades, from regional and national high-level policy or knowledge-oriented collaborations to those that plan and implement local and community-based on-the-ground actions. Many have achieved different levels of success. Others became stagnant and atrophied. Still others, somehow, managed to evolve. These vital and changing roles of partnerships in water and sanitation developments will be explored in the upcoming ADB and Partners "Water: Crisis and Choices" conference in October."
The last issue of the ADB Newsletter explores the role of water partnerships and includes an interview with GWP Patron Margaret Catley-Carlson.
