The Road to Total Sanitation: Notes from a field trip and workshop on scaling up in Africa

The aim of this learning and sharing exercise was to: explore partners' activities on rural sanitation especially, but not limited to, CLTS, Sanitation Marketing and PHAST; build consensus on the key components needed to take CLTS and Sanitation Marketing to scale with equity and sustainability; further explore collaboration, linkages, and partnerships; and make recommendations on how to scale up which are transferable across all countries in the region. These notes reflect the conclusions, recommendations, and lessons learnt from this trip. They are based on a two-day workshop that was held directly following a field trip visiting various projects in Tanzania.

The MTR was designed to contribute to organisational learning as well as to meet the accountability requirements of WSSCC’s Steering Committee and donors. The MTR covers the period 2012-2014, with additional analysis of progress made as part of the 2015-2016 Biennial Work Plan up to February 2016. The review was undertaken by IFMR LEAD and managed for quality assurance by the International Initiative for Impact Evaluation (3ie) under the 3ie Sanitation and Hygiene Thematic Window.WSSCC has issued a Management Response to the recommendations in the review, with a comprehensive internal response plan developed for each recommendation, under the headings of Programme Strategy, Monitoring and Evaluation and Governance.

WSSCC General

The Water Supply and Sanitation Collaborative Council – WSSCC – is at the heart of a global movement to improve sanitation and hygiene for everyone. As the only United Nations body devoted solely to sanitation and hygiene for the world’s most vulnerable people, WSSCC serves as the hub for global sanitation efforts, and as a key resource for governments, non-governmental organizations, communities and individuals working to transform sanitation worldwide.

WSSCC Annual Report 2013

WSSCC General

2013 was an exceptional year for all those working to improve sanitation and hygiene for the world’s poorest and most marginalized people. This critical issue is taking a central role in the global development agenda, as the world increasingly recognizes sanitation as the crossroads of development – the intersection of health, economic opportunity, education and gender equality. With the deadline for the Millennium Development Goals fast approaching and debate on the post-2015 targets well underway, policymakers increasingly turned their attention to sanitation, which currently lags behind the other MDGs and must figure prominently in the next generation of development goals. WSSCC's achievements in 2013, summarized in the Annual Report 2013, have played a central role in progress on several fronts: supporting on-the-ground programs that have ended open defecation for 3.7 million people, drawing new attention to the sanitation and hygiene needs of the most vulnerable people, bringing the sector together to improve collaboration and share knowledge, and advocacy for sanitation’s place on the development agenda.

WSSCC Rapport Annuel 2012

WSSCC General

Événements marquants en 2012: Le Fonds mondial pour l’assainissement a franchi un seuil important : il a atteint un million de personnes. En effet, près d’1,4 million de personnes ont dorénavant accès à des toilettes améliorées grâce à des programmes nationaux financés par le Fonds mondial pour l’assainissement quipromeuvent les changements de comportements, le lavage des mains et la coordination à l’échelle des pays. Le WSSCC joue un rôle prépondérant dans ce secteur au niveau mondial, notamment de par sa participation active à un certain nombre d’initiatives capitales telles que « Assainissement et eau pour tous » (Sanitation and Water for All) et le Nirmal Bharat Yatra. L’ensemble des travaux du WSSCC ont été marqués par deux des axes thématiques essentiels du savoir et du plaidoyer, en l’occurrence l’équité et l’inclusion, surtout au cours des négociations concernant les cibles et objectifs pour l’après-2015 et de divers séminaires, conférences et ateliers tels que ceux qu’a organisés le Programme commun OMS/UNICEF de suivi de l’approvisionnement en eau et de l’assainissement.
