To meet the goal of universal access of water and sanitation services (Sustainable Development Goal 6) we need to change the way we do business. It calls for us to learn from different areas outside water.

Peter Laugharn, CEO of the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation, takes us back to the times when he was working on the goal of 'education for all' - in the nineties in Mali,where he was working with Save the Children as deputy director of a field office. Times in which he learned the tough lessons of what it means to lack mandate, and the need to have a lon-term vision.

Lessons that are now being applied in Hilton's Safe Water Strategy its implementation with partners in districts like Asutifi-North in Ghana.


This keynote speech was delivered at the All systems go! WASH systems symposium 12-14 March 2019.
