Don't miss the next destination of our learning journey on Innovative Financing for Water Security through an IWRM Approach. This online event will focus on two countries’ experiences in matchmaking funding for water security, with lessons learned from Kenya and Guatemala, the two piloting countries of the Funding Matchmaking Initiative. In this event, high-level government officials from the two countries will share their experience in facing the challenges on securing finance for water security, before opening up for an interactive panel debate with participants.  

The online event will take place on September 8th, 2022 at 4:30 PM CEST (check your local time here). The webinar will be held in English and Spanish, with simultaneous interpretation available.

About the Funding Matchmaking Initiative 
The Funding Matchmaking Initiative, organised by the SDG 6 IWRM Support Programme, aims to match country-defined priorities for water management improvements with the necessary funding and financing. This includes local funding sources, external donors and other funding agencies that have available financing, but which are not currently investing in water management at the scale required or in the most coordinated manner. To do so, it aims to leverage political and financial in-country support for the implementation of the actions in the coming years, to accelerate progress on the water-related SDGs, in line with the financing accelerator of the SDG 6 Global Acceleration Framework. The initiative has been piloted in Kenya and Guatemala since September 2021, and the results of the pilot will be presented during the webinar.
