WSSCC Annual Report 2016

2016 was a year of delivery and transition for WSSCC, and a time to respond to new opportunities. It was the conclusion of WSSCC’s Medium-Term Strategic Plan (MTSP) 2012-2016, when the significant results from 2016 and the last five years were consolidated and the impacts were evaluated. The report shows the interconnectivity of WSSCC’s work on Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) target 6.2 and other SDGs, especially those for health, education and reduction in inequalities. Direct national sanitation and hygiene delivery through the Global Sanitation Fund and policy advocacy aiming to ‘leave no one behind’ generated positive impacts for millions of people in 2016. These twin, inter-linked pillars of WSSCC’s work were given momentum by thousands of WSSCC partners, including National Coordinators and individual members, on-the-ground implementers, national governments where we work, donors and others.2016 a été une année de production et de transition pour le WSSCC, et un moment pour répondre à de nouvelles opportunités.

Scoping and Diagnosis of the Global Sanitation Fund’s Approach to EQND

Global Sanitation Fund

In 2016, WSSCC’s Global Sanitation Fund (GSF) recruited an independent team of experts to undertake an in-depth two-part diagnosis of GSF’s approach to equality and non-discrimination (EQND). The first part of the diagnosis – an assessment comprising of visits to six countries (Ethiopia, Malawi, Nepal, Nigeria, Senegal and Togo) and a review of documentation across all GSF-supported programmes – was completed in 2017, resulting in this study. While confirming that many people who may be considered disadvantaged have benefitted positively from GSF-supported programmes, the study emphasizes that more proactive attention is needed to ensure no one is left behind. Several recommendations are offered to better integrate EQND throughout the components and stages of all GSF-supported programmes.Summarized version of the study, including the Executive Summary, selected case studies and GSF reflections.Cadrage et diagnostic de l’approche du Fonds mondial pour l’assainissement sur l’égalité et la non-discrimination: Résumé analytique, études de cas et réflexions.Annexes related to the study.
