WSSCC Annual Report 2010

WSSCC General
2010 was WSSCC’s 20th year, and a very productive one at that. Through the Global Sanitation Fund, WSSCC became an active financier of sanitation in some of the world’s poorest countries. At the same time, the organization assertively voiced its beliefs and messages in global and regional fora. It reached new heights in the number and quality of knowledge products, collaborative relationships, communications and learning tools, and professional networking.

Equity and Inclusion in Sanitation and Hygiene in South Asia – A Regional Synthesis Paper

Equality
There are two facets to the problem in South Asia, both of which are unacceptable. The first is a problem of scale: 716 million men, women, and children defecate in the open every day in South Asia, especially in rural areas: a veritable sanitation crisis that impairs progress in the region. Many districts in India, Nepal, and Pakistan fall in this category. The second, and in many ways more pernicious problem, particularly in South Asia, is one of exclusion, where different categories of people are not able to access and use safe sanitation facilities. These categories of people include those who are socially and economically marginalized or excluded, and those who cannot use standard designs. This catalytic working paper, including a bibliography, was developed for the Technical Session during the 4th South Asian Conference on Sanitation (SACOSAN IV) Reaching the Unserved: Equity and Inclusion in South Asia. It is intended for discussion leading to collaborative action.

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

WSSCC General
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.

Hygiene and Sanitation Software – An overview of approaches

Collaboration
Problems caused by a lack of toilet facilities are well documented, but simply providing facilities is not enough. Public health practitioners recognize that until good hygiene is properly practiced, both at home and in the community as a whole, the desired impact of improved water and sanitation services in terms of community health benefits cannot be realized. Several methods are used to address this problem and engage target groups (individuals, households, communities, institutions or even organizations) in development programmes that enable a change in behaviours or create a demand for services. These methods or approaches are generally referred to as ‘software’ to distinguish them from the provision of 'hardware', which is defined as the physical facilities. There is often confusion over areas such as what a particular approach is designed to achieve, what it actually comprises, when and where it should be used, how it should be implemented or how much it costs. This publication takes an in-depth look at the various hygiene and sanitation software approaches that have been deployed over the last 40 years by NGOs, development agencies, national and local governments in all types of settings – urban, informal-urban and rural.Les problèmes liés au manque d’installations sanitaires sont bien connus. Toutefois, la fourniture de toilettes n’est pas suffisante. Les praticiens en santé publique sont de plus en plus sensibles au fait que les impacts attendus des services d’eau et d’assainissement améliorés et visant à améliorer la santé communautaire ne pourront être atteints que si les foyers et les communautés adoptent de bonnes pratiques en matière d’hygiène. Il existe différentes méthodes afin de faire face à ce problème et s’attachant à impliquer des groupes cibles (des particuliers, des ménages, des communautés, des institutions ou encore des organisations) dans le processus de développement de programmes visant à changer les comportements ou à créer une demande de services. Ces méthodes ou approches sont généralement appelées « stratégies participatives et de promotion » afin de les différencier de la fourniture d’équipements, c’est-à-dire d’installations physiques. Ces stratégies prêtent souvent à confusion en ce qui a trait à leur portée, ce qu’elles impliquent, quand, où et comment elles devraient être mises en œuvre, ou encore combien elles coûtent. Cette publication décrit les différentes stratégies participatives et de promotion en matière d’hygiène et d’assainissement qui ont été mises en œuvre au cours des quarante dernières années par des ONG, des agences de développement, des gouvernements nationaux ou locaux dans différents milieux (urbain, urbain informel et rural).

WSSCC Rapport Annuel 2009

WSSCC General
En 2009, le WSSCC a commencé à contrôler et à évaluer son travail de façon plus systématique. L’ensemble des programmes de l’organisation vise non seulement à réaliser des activités mais également à œuvrer pour un impact positif sur la vie des personnes. Le WSSCC s’efforce d’apporter un changement qui se mesure soit par un certain nombre d’idées innovatrices en matière d’assainissement et d’hygiène répandues et reconnues, soit par la reconnaissance de l’importance de l’assainissement et l’hygiène, ou encore par un nombre plus élevé de ressources et d’institutions poursuivant des politiques progressistes ou soutenant les efforts d’assainissement et d’hygiène. En tant que leader de concertation dans les secteurs de l’assainissement, de l’hygiène et de l’approvisionnement en eau, le WSSCC collabore avec différents partenaires qui visent à aider un grand nombre de personnes démunies à atteindre un accès durable à l’assainissement de base et à l’eau et à adopter de bonnes pratiques de l’hygiène.
