The Water Supply and Sanitation Collaborative Council (WSSCC) is seeking a new Chairperson for its Steering Committee. Expressions of interest welcome by 17 March 2018.
WSSCC supports results-driven country programmes and facilitates sector coordination at national, regional and global levels advocating on behalf of the 2.3 billion people without access to improved sanitation.

WSSCC is looking for expressions of interest from experienced individuals who want to provide strategic leadership, vision and stewardship to the governing body of WSSCC and increased global visibility to the topic of sanitation and hygiene.
