WSSCC Medium-Term Strategic Plan

November 2011

The Water Supply and Sanitation Collaborative Council (WSSCC), with its strong values base, its 20-year track record, its committed Members, donors, leadership and staff, and its position bridging the boundary of the UN system, is well-placed to contribute to achieving sanitation and hygiene for all. This Medium-Term Strategic Plan describes how WSSCC’s goal and vision direct its strategies for the next five years. It outlines WSSCC’s intended impact and outcomes and it specifies how these results will be achieved and monitored. It contains indicative budgets needed to achieve these results.

The impact which WSSCC undertakes to achieve between 2012 and 2016 is to contribute substantially to global efforts to improve sanitation and hygiene for poor and vulnerable people, predominantly in Africa and Asia. To attain this purpose, WSSCC has set four practical outcomes for the time period 2012-2016 supported by a fifth, organizational, outcome. They are as follows:

  • Outcome 1: ACCESS AND USE. Tens of millions of previously unserved people in 10–25 sanitation-needy countries gain access to and sustainably use improved sanitation and adopt safe hygienic behaviours.
  • Outcome 2: EQUITY. Among those who gain access, poor and marginalized people and groups are identified and preferentially supported.
  • Outcome 3: INVOLVEMENT. More individuals, organizations and businesses become involved in sanitation and hygiene work.
  • Outcome 4: KNOWLEDGE AND SKILLS. Individuals and agencies working in sanitation and hygiene improve their knowledge and skills.
  • Outcome 5: DELIVERY. WSSCC is adequately resourced and effectively governed and managed to deliver Outcomes 1–4.

The full MTSP report is available in English and French, together with executive summaries in English, French and Spanish.
