Following WSSCC’s February workshop for journalists in Benin, Amanda Marlin, Advocacy and Communications Programme Manager, was interviewed by journalist Fazila Dahall the pan-African news outlet Channel Africa.
Ms. Marlin spoke about the important “watchdog” role that journalists have to report on the water, sanitation and hygiene commitments made by their Governments. She also said journalists have an important role in encouraging people to change their behaviours and embrace good sanitation and hygiene practices.
Marlin said she was excited about the growth of the West Africa WASH Journalist Network, which is supported by WSSCC and WaterAid, and the desire of African media for investigative journalism.
