Mid-Term Review of WSSCC’s Medium-Term Strategic Plan 2012-2016 – Executive Summary

WSSCC General

In 2015, the WSSCC commissioned a Mid-Term Review (MTR) of its Medium-Term Strategic Plan (MTSP) 2012-16 to assess its progress against intended results in the MTSP. 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 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.

WSSCC Annual Report 2012

WSSCC General

The 2012 Annual Report of WSSCC is an account of our activities and engagements over the past year. The year was characterised by improvements in the delivery of the Global Sanitation Fund and the appointment of Chris Williams as the WSSCC Executive Director in October 2012. Some key highlights from the report include: The Global Sanitation Fund crossed a major threshold– that of reaching the first million people. Almost 1.4 million people are now with improved toilets thanks to national programmes financed by the Global Sanitation Fund that promote behaviour change, hand washing and in-country coordination; WSSCC’s contribution to collective global leadership in the sector included its active involvement in a number of key sector initiatives such as Sanitation and Water for All and the Nirmal Bharat Yatra; Equity and inclusion were among the core knowledge and advocacy themes that permeated WSSCC’s work, most notably during negotiations for Post-2015 goals and targets. WSSCC appointed new National Coordinators who serve as strategic focal points for country level activities; Donor relations and fundraising remained a priority and resulted in constructive engagements with existing donors, additional contributions from the Netherlands and Sweden, and a commitment from a new donor, Finland.
