High Level Integrated Workshop on UN-Water SDG 6 Capacity Development Initiative in Panama

In Panama, over recent decades, over-exploitation, pollution, and climate change have led to severe water stress in the country.

The Government of Panama has informed various fora, such as the High Level Political Forum, of their struggle with progress towards Sustainable Development Goal 6 (SDG 6) - water and sanitation for all by 2030 - due to a lack of institutional, human, financial and technological capacity. This has led the Government of Panama to issue a formal request to UN-Water’s SDG 6 Capacity Development Initiative (CDI) for Panama to be considered as a pilot country.

In collaboration with the Government of Panama, the UN Resident Coordinator and Country Team and UN-Water family Members and Partners will hold a High Level Integrated Workshop to discuss the capacity development gaps and challenges in the water and sanitation sectors in Panama. Priority areas of intervention and stakeholders will be identified. Topics and priority areas of discussion will be addressed during the Workshop.

The workshop runs from Mon 30 Oct 2023, 9.00 am — Wed 01 Nov 2023, 12.00 pm, at the Fundación Ciudad del Saber, Panama City, Panama. Senior officials and experts are invited.
