IPWA Holding Financial Tools Meeting Oct. 23

The International Private Water Association (IPWA) will?hold a Financial Tools Taskforce meeting via?conference call on Wednesday, Oct. 23, from 9:30 a.m. to 11:15 a.m. (EST). The focus of the meeting and two presentations will be on the USAID/Swedish Grand Challenge for Water.

Through this $25 million program, USAID and SIDA will fund and accelerate scientific and technological innovations that can be sustained with market-based approaches to more effectively use and manage the water required to produce food in developing and emerging countries.
Given the tremendous water needs of the agriculture sector and the importance of balancing these needs?with the water requirements of industries and everyday municipal activity, this is a Taskforce presentation not to be missed. The meeting will include a presentation by Dr. Ku McMahan who is the USAID team leader for the Initiative that is properly known as ?Securing Water for Food: A?Grand Challenge for Development.?
