The Water Supply and Sanitation Collaborative Council (WSSCC) is excited to announce the merger of its Community of Practice on Sanitation and Hygiene in Developing Countries (CoP) with the SuSanA discussion forum.
This merger will enable WSSCC members to access and interact with an even more diverse global community of sanitation practitioners. This new partnership among WSSCC, SuSanA and Rural Water Supply Network (RWSN) at Skat Foundation is key to expanding the community’s focus on equality and non-discrimination, menstrual hygiene and health (MHH), and rural behaviour change programming.
We hope that our members will continue to actively share their knowledge in this growing learning community so that together, we can elevate unheard voices, confront stigmas and barriers, enhance accountability systems, and achieve sanitation and hygiene services for those left behind.
