Connecting the Dots-Advancing the WASH Agenda in 16 Countries with WSS...

Collaboration Members
WSSCC works closely with highly respected professionals in the water, sanitation and hygiene arena who are nominated by their peers and appointed by the Executive Director to be volunteer experts, known as national coordinators. The 16 national coordinators work in priority countries in Africa and Asia and are an important and distinguishing feature of WSSCC. This report is focused on the WSSCC national coordinators, the vital work they lead at country level and their considerable ongoing impact. National coordinators possess local knowledge of what is happening on the ground and understand the dynamics of their particular country contexts. Their day jobs range from heading up national NGOs to holding senior positions in government offices or consultancy firms. With this kind of combination of experience, capacities, exposure and contexts, the national coordinators bring a wide range of rich knowledge and ways of working to the WSSCC mission that allows our work to reach sectors and partners that would not otherwise be possible.Le WSSCC travaille en étroite collaboration avec des professionnels très respectés dans le domaine de l'eau, l'assainissement et l’hygiène. Ils sont nommés par leurs pairs et par le directeur exécutif pour être des experts bénévoles, connus sous le nom de coordonnateurs nationaux. Les 16 coordinateurs nationaux travaillent dans des pays prioritaires du WSSCC en Afrique et en Asie et sont des acteurs importants et caractéristiques du Conseil. Ce rapport est axé sur le travail essentiel qu'ils mènent au niveau des pays et leur impact constant. Les coordinateurs nationaux possèdent une connaissance du terrain et comprennent la dynamique particulière de leurs pays. Leur travail quotidien s’étend à diriger des ONG nationales à des postes supérieurs dans les bureaux du gouvernement ou dans des sociétés de conseil. Avec ce genre d'expérience et de capacités, ils apportent une large gamme de connaissances et de moyens de travailler, ce qui permet d'atteindre des secteurs et des partenaires qui ne seraient pas autrement possibles.

WSSCC Annual Report 2015

Collaboration
Throughout its 25 years of existence, WSSCC has envisaged a world where everyone has access to sustained water supply, sanitation and hygiene and, since 2008, has deliberately chosen to focus on ensuring access to sanitation and hygiene. This work is primarily driven through the Global Sanitation Fund (GSF), supporting large scale sanitation and hygiene improvement programmes in 13 countries. In 2015 WSSCC also deepened its work on human rights in WASH and equality and non-discrimination through applied research, platforms for voice and agency, policy advocacy with national governments and facilitation of regional meetings and ministerial commitments.
