WSSCC is part of the collective global leadership on sanitation and hygiene. WSSCC’s presence at the 6th World Water Forum (WWF) aims to bring the knowledge and critical messages of the 2011 Global Forum on Sanitation and Hygiene hosted in India to a wider audience. In a bid to further strengthen engagement with partners from francophone Africa, as well as other key stakeholders, WSSCC will play an active role at the Forum.

At this major event, WSSCC will galvanize actions to help improve access to integrated sanitation services for all. WSSCC together with Plan International will lead an event at the World Water Forum on 15 March, which addresses how to ensure the global population (particularly children) use and properly maintain appropriate sanitary toilets by the year 2050 (also known as Target 1.2.1). The session entitled “Looking beyond MDGs, sanitation and hygiene for all”, builds upon the 2011 Global Forum on Sanitation and Hygiene and aims to identify the gaps in access to sanitation and hygiene and existing practical solutions, featuring WSSCC’s Global Sanitation Fund (GSF) programme in Madagascar, as well as a case study on disabilities from South Africa.

The discussions and recommendations from this session will support WSSCC’s contribution and engagement in the post-2015 discussions, where it is part of a collective advocating for post-2015 Millennium Development Goal (MDG) targets to include access to sustainable water supply, sanitation and hygiene for all. WSSCC is supporting the International Water Association (IWA) in setting targets beyond Millennium Development Goals, together with a consortium of organizations namely, and the Portuguese Association of Water Resources (APRH), Programme Solidarité-Eau (PS-Eau).
