Organized by UNICEF, the CAREC Institute with support from Asian Development Bank and Vital Strategies, the forum aims to foster strategic initiatives, policy formation, and collaboration efforts to enhance sustainable WASH services in the Central Asian region. Anticipated outcomes include the development of a strategic plan for the CAREC WASH Virtual Center, discussion of results from private sector mapping in Tajikistan, and facilitation of technology collaboration among CAREC countries.

Key sessions on the agenda include panel discussions on climate-resilient WASH challenges, WASH technology innovations, fostering innovation in the WASH sector through market policies and collaboration, and WASH and Innovative Finance.
