Ms. Archana PatkarArchana Patkar, WSSCC’s Networking and Knowledge Management Programme Manager, is representing the organization this week at the “First Consultation On Post-2015 Monitoring Of Water And Sanitation” from 3 to 5 May in Berlin.  The meeting is organized by the World Health Organization (WHO) and UNICEF. 

“The meeting will take stock of progress and monitoring efforts and their limitations, including the fact that they focus primarily on the use of facilities,” said Ms. Patkar, “and to start thinking about a new set of targets and how these can build on the human rights principles of progressive realization and non-discrimination to achieve sanitation and water for all.”

Ms. Patkar is a panellist in a session on 4 April that focuses specifically on the “Targets, Scope and Boundaries Post-2015.” 

For more information, see the attached documents containing a concept paper and the full programme for the Berlin meeting.
