Final panel discussion
In 1990 the General Assembly endorsed the ‘New Delhi Statement’ entitled Some for all rather than more for some. This symposium looks back at the New Delhi Statement. It seeks to understand more fully the pathways that have – or could have – emerged and the political economy and politics of water and sanitation policy processes in the intervening 21 years.
For more on the background, please see the attached document: Some for All – Pathways and Politics in Water and Sanitation (pdf, 90kb).
The conference includes a mixture of invited keynote talks, perspectives and provocations which respond to the overall conference questions and themes, with a series of panel sessions. We have invited key actors who drafted and pioneered the New Delhi statement to reflect critically on the politics and processes of the past 21 years.
