But what exactly is the Asia Pacific Water Forum or APWF as it has come to be called? p65 32 6/6/2008, 2:53 PM Opening Ceremony 33 It is an open, inclusive, non-partisan, non-political, multi stakeholder network. Every government, local and municipal authorities, academic and civil society organization, which has an interest in water, is welcome to join the Asia Pacific Water Forum. Thank the JWF and the Secretariat We want to thank former Prime Minister Mori for allowing the Japan Water Forum to serve as the Secretariat of the Asia Pacific Water Forum.

We have the means to make safe water and modern sanitation a basic human right of all the peoples in this region. Our collective ambition is to ensure that water policy, reform, investment and performance are high on the agendas of our region’s leaders. p65 33 6/6/2008, 2:53 PM 34 Opening Ceremony APWF’s Two Objectives The APWF’s objectives are: (i) to provide countries and organisations in the AsiaPacific region with a common platform and voice to articulate the region’s strategies and promote its achievements in solving water problems and (ii) to showcase leadership in decision-making, excellence in practice and innovation, and results that have had a substantial impact at the grassroots level.

I am happy to see that today we are building on those outcomes. For indeed it was last year in Mexico, at that same Forum, that our Board released the Hashimoto Action Plan to advance the world’s progress towards the Millennium Development Goal targets on water and sanitation. The Hashimoto Action Plan identifies six areas most in need of focused, coordinated action: Financing, Water Operators Partnerships, Sanitation, Monitoring, Integrated Water Resources Management, and Water and Disaster. p65 39 6/6/2008, 2:53 PM 40 Opening Ceremony Those six areas of action and this Summit’s Priority Themes have much in common.
