This is a synthesis report on the Sanitation and Water Conference 08 held in Melbourne in October 2008.  The conference brought together over 200 experts from Southeast Asia and the Pacific regions and around the world to share their experience on how to address access to water and sanitation.  It provides guidance on important directions in the water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) sector in the Asia–Pacific region in the form of 10 key strategies identified in the Conference. The strategies are elaborated in terms of why they are important and how they might be achieved, and the report concludes with a focus on stakeholder responsibilities to move into action.
