Re: USAID participation at World Water Week 2017

Dear Dan,

I am just wondering if you have the powerpoint presentations or any video recordings available from these events that USAID participated in at the World Water Week in August in Stockholm?

I am particularly interested in this one:

- Building Africa’s Leadership in Sanitation: USAID, Gates Foundation/UNESCO, AMCOW Innovations - USAID / African Ministers' Council On Water / Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

The reason is that I am always on the look-out for more information for the projects in the SuSanA project daabase. We have one AMCOW project listed so far:
"Support to AMCOW capacity to influence sanitation policy"
www.susana.org/en/knowledge-hub/projects/database/details/193

I am not sure if it's the same one that was talked about at that seminar (although it already ended in 2016 I believe).

Regards,
Elisabeth
