Watch the FAO-OECD Roundtable on Financing Agricultural Water on demand!

The 7th meeting of the Roundtable on Financing Water is a thematic meeting focused on financing agricultural water organised in partnership with the OECD and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO). This meeting supports the OECD’s broader work on financing water as well as FAO's strategic priorities on promoting investments in agricultural water (and update on the development of the new Strategic Framework) that contribute to sustainable water management, food security, and sustainable development more broadly. FAO, as a founding member of UN-Water, is moving forward on the action pillars of the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 6 Global Acceleration Framework in catalysing water investments, data and information, capacity development, innovation and governance.

The Roundtable on Financing Water provides a global public-private platform drawing upon political leadership and technical expertise, with the ambition of facilitating increased financing of investments that contribute to water security and sustainable growth. The 7th meeting will focus on agriculture water developments and investment needs that was beyond the scope of the previous roundtables.

The Roundtable engages a diversity of actors - governments and regulators in developed, emerging and developing economies, private financiers (e.g. institutional investors, commercial banks, asset managers, impact investors), development financing institutions, bi-lateral donors, international organizations, academia and civil society organizations - focused on finding novel ideas and solutions.


The powerpoint presentations and the recording of the event will be available soon.
