My participation in this conference is funded by the Caribbean Development Bank (CDB).”
At this conference, the St. Kitts and Nevis representatives will be afforded the opportunity to interact with and engage leading industry experts and professionals such as engineers, contractors, policy makers, and regional and international financial institutions, and share experience and ideals in addressing water issues affecting their individual countries and the region on a whole.
The High-Level Forum (HLF) is an unmatched regional event, being the only meeting of Caribbean Water Ministers to date.
The HLF is a joint initiative of the Caribbean Water and Wastewater Association (CWWA) and its partner, the Global Water Partnership-Caribbean (GWP-C) which began in 2005 as a session within the CWWA’s Annual Conference and Exhibition.
