Join us at this year’s conference organized by The Water Institute, University of North Carolina (UNC) at Chapel Hill, from October 29 to November 2
The 2018 Water and Health Conference: Where Science Meets Policy will explore drinking water supply, sanitation, hygiene and water resources with a strong public health emphasis. The conference will be held at the UNC, in North Carolina, USA, and here are the WSSCC’s interventions:
Tuesday 31 October 14h30-16h00 Sunflower Room – Co-convened with the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, SHARE, WaterAid, Emory University and Plan International UK
Behaviour change is critical for the achieving SDG targets. Moving from a theory-based framework for behaviour change intervention to case studies, we will illustrate how intervention design for scale might work highlighting pitfalls and offering insights from a policy and practice perspective.
Thursday 1 November 8h30-10h00 Dogwood Room – Co-convened with the University at Buffalo and 3ie
Understanding and measuring the sustained behavioural effect of community sanitation programs, changes in sanitation norms and effects on addressing the needs of potentially disadvantaged populations has been the basis for WSSCC’s collaboration with the University at Buffalo and 3ie over recent years. Through the development of a new programme monitoring survey tool and mixed-method impact evaluations, we’ve jointly gathered some exciting new evidence from programmes in several countries on critical elements of achieving SDG 6.2 including the sustainability of sanitation and hygiene behaviour change and equity and inclusion.
