From 12-17 March the 6th World Water Forum (WWF) will take place in the southern French city of Marseilles, to tackle global water challenges and raise the profile of water issues on the global political agenda. An event entitled “You thought quitting smoking was hard? Try using a toilet!” is being convened the Community of Practice for Sanitation and Hygiene on 14 March, with support from the Water Supply & Sanitation Collaborative Council (WSSCC).


This event is in response to the demand of sanitation and hygiene practitioners that a wider appreciation is needed of behavioral change – Is the sanitation and hygiene sector focusing too narrowly on handwashing and fixed-point defecation where there are wider lessons on changing behaviors? What can we learn from other sectors? And, what are the behaviors that sanitation and hygiene practitioners should be looking to impact?


Facilitated by COMBI Behaviour and Social Intervention expert Asiya Odugleh­Kolev of the World Health Organization (WHO) the event will take place on 14 March from 19:15 – 20:15.


This events falls under the wider scope of the global community of practice for sanitation and hygiene –and intends to be one of a series of events under the behavioral change theme and others. Learning points from this event will be shared with the wider community.  


Details can be found in the attached flyer and online at http://www.worldwaterforum6.org/


Please join this event for an honest debate about people’s every day habits and choices and the implications for achieving real progress in improving sanitation and hygiene. 


Places may be limited – if possible please notify your attendance to shcopadmin@wsscc.org.
