The South Asia Regional Section (SRG) manages the deployment of technical assistance to partner governments under SAWASI, to fulfil terms of reference established jointly by Posts and Partner governments to address priority urban water challenges. The number of advisories varies annually and may relate to services required to be delivered to various countries across the region. SRG expects to establish a number of partnerships between TAP providers and local water authorities in recipient countries, with each assignment comprising a small team of experts working to support improved approaches to urban water management in the priority area.
The Australian Government has committed to providing direct and responsive support to partner governments to address increasing urban water supply challenges through the provision of high quality technical advisory services. High quality support will enhance access to safe and reliable drinking water for urban communities while strengthening climate resilience. Through strong and effective advisory service partnerships with partner government municipal authorities, the Australian Government will strengthen bilateral relationships, support COVID-19 recovery and progress efforts to achieve SDGs 6 and 7.
The objectives of SAWASI is to strengthen South Asian city-level water governance and undertake investments that provide urban water services support to disadvantaged communities (particularly women and girls) to access reliable and safe water and sanitation services.
