The sWASH&grow project’s final seminar was organized by the project’s 28 partners. sWASH&grow aims to improve the conditions for innovators to meet relief organizations’ demands and enable sustainable and circular innovations in the WASH sector to reach vulnerable populations in humanitarian crises as well as areas without access to critical utilities and services.
The project has, through testbeds in cooperation with buyers and users, tested innovative sustainable solutions and designed tools for development, scaling and export. After two years it’s time to sum up:
This hybrid event gathered key stakeholders from the NGO, private and public sectors to discuss innovative solutions to facilitate more circular solutions in the WASH sector, that meet global demands.
