On June 4th SWP chair Olga Darazs presented the Swiss water knowhow and expertise collected during thematic cluster meetings with SWP members to ten members of the management of World Bank’s Water Global Practice and Water and Sanitation Program. The presentation triggered very interesting discussions during which the following entry points were identified: We are currently looking into setting up a small trust fund aiming at supporting strategic thematic exchanges between Swiss water actors and the WB. Furthermore the idea of Study Tours in Switzerland targeted to WB clients (targeting government representatives, water utility managers…) has been discussed and will be further explored. We will inform you about next steps as soon as possible.
