Regional Dialogue on Wastewater Management in Asia, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, 15-16 June 2010

May 19, 2010 at 10:26 am 1 comment

Organised by: ESCAP and in cooperation with the Academy of Sciences Malaysia (and other Malaysian Partners).

Currently ESCAP is implementing a program aimed at promoting development of eco-efficient water infrastructure since 2008 with financial support of the Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA), covering several developing countries, in which wastewater treatment by innovative approaches is being promoted for rehabilitation of rivers. Concurrently, national dialogues have also been promoted in several of these countries on specific issues that are of priority focuses of the corresponding countries. For this reason, the National Workshop for Malaysia, which was originally planned by the National Hydraulic Research Institute of Malaysia (NAHRIM) and the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP) has now been upgraded to a higher level workshop at either sub-regional or regional level.

A major driver of this regional dialogue is the recent initiative on Wastewater Revolution in Asia of the Secretariat of the United Nations Secretary-General’s Advisory Board on Water and Sanitation (UNSGAB). ADB is a key partner in the regional meeting.

Objectives:

  • To further develop regional support for wastewater management in the Asia-Pacific countries
  • To foster the networks required on the development of wastewater management in the Asia-Pacific countries
  • To support UNSGAB’s recent initiative on Wastewater Revolution in Asia
  • To link ESCAP’s current program on sustainable development, green growth and eco-efficiency to HAP II, en-route to MCED-6 in Astana, Kazakhstan

Target Group

Apart from participants from selected countries, experts from Members of the UN Waters group and other international organizations including the following: AIT, ADB, Korea Water Forum, GWP, WWC, JWF, UNSGAB are expected to attend.
