Through its participation to these networks, SDC pursues four major objectives: a) Influence significantly the development of the water sector at global level and contribute to the harmonization of the different approaches. b) Communicate and disseminate SDC’s experience at global level. c) Strengthen SDC’s interventions in the water sector trough the global inputs of the networks. d) Maintain and develop a strong Swiss positioning in the water sector. These objectives contribute to the overall goal to achieve the global water security as a contribution to all major MDGs related to water, like: eradicate elimination extreme poverty and hunger (1), reduce child mortality (3), ensure environmental sustainability (7) Develop a global partnership for development (8) and assure the implementation of the Accra Agenda for Action in the Water sector.
