In January, WSSCC secretariat staff met with several key partner organisations to discuss how they could all work more effectively together and also avoid duplication in their collective WASH advocacy efforts.

“It is important to ensure that advocacy work designed to raise awareness, influence governments, build capacity and support knowledge sharing, does not also lead to confusion or duplication,” said WSSCC’s Carolien van der Voorden, who attended the London meeting together with representatives of WaterAid, End Water Poverty (EWP) and the Freshwater Action Network (FAN).

For this reason, Building Partnerships for Development (BPD) has been commissioned to interview more than 30 professionals in different countries who are familiar with the advocacy work of each organisation. This is seen as a first step towards identifying areas where greater synergy is possible.
