Following its participation in the ninth edition of the World Water Forum — the world's largest event on water — the Saudi Fund for Development (SFD) has called on global leaders and organizations to work together to safeguard the future of the water sector. 
The Fund was joined by experts and leading voices from around the world at the 2022 World Water Forum, where it spotlighted its contributions to enhancing the global water sector and underlined its commitment to empowering underserved communities to fulfil their potential. 
The first gathering of its kind held in sub-Saharan Africa, the forum took place from March 21 to 26 in Dakar, Senegal. It brought the international water community together to discuss global water challenges, climate change and sustainability. 
As part of its strategy to achieve the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), SFD took part in the event to call attention to the importance of developing clean water projects around the world. 
At the forum, SFD reiterated its commitment to financing these initiatives and programs to affect lasting change by offering disadvantaged people access to vital resources and improving their quality of life. 
Ultimately, SFD aims to promote sustainable social and economic growth. To date, the organization has successfully launched and established water and energy sector projects in 38 countries across the world.
