1st World Summit on Leaving No One Behind, dates: 7-8 February 2019 location: Geneva, Geneve, Switzerland
The 1st World Summit on Leaving No One Behind will meet in Geneva, Switzerland, on the theme, ‘Human Rights Based Solutions for Access to Water and Sanitation’.
The Summit will bring together governance leaders and funding agencies, and is expected to “set off a stream of chosen projects” that will address the challenges faced by those being left behind in the least developed countries (LDCs). These projects, along with tangible outcomes, will be presented as workable solutions at forthcoming high-level events.
The Summit is organized and sponsored by Water Lex, the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) and the International Water Resources Association (IWRA). It is expected to convene annually, combining the ‘Leaving No One Behind’ topic with the annual UN-Water theme.
