World Water Week in Stockholm, set for August 27 to September 1, will see robust engagement from the Water Supply and Sanitation Collaborative Council (WSSCC). The Council will share recent innovations and experiences in sanitation and hygiene programmes and policy work, attuned to the SDG era, for the Water Week community:

  • WSSCC, with Global Citizen and SIWI, will examine how businesses contribute and emerging countries stay accountable in the movement for global access to sanitation. ‘The Full Circle of Sanitation Accountability in WASH’ takes place August 28 from 6 to 8 pm, at Vasateatern. 
  • How have WSSCC’s Global Sanitation Fund-supported national programmes helped eradicate open defecation over five years for some 15 million people? Why does a focus on Menstrual Hygiene Management help break down other WASH stigmas or stagnation? What’s in WSSCC’s new 2017-2020 strategy? Learn about (or rediscover!) WSSCC in the UN Water Pavilion coordination booth on August 29 from 1 to 5 pm.
  • As a founding partner of WASH4WORK, WSSCC will join diverse public and private stakeholders to explore how businesses across the world can improve WASH conditions for workers in their factories, local communities and supply chains. ‘WASH4Work: Enabling Businesses to Tackle the WASH Challenge’ takes place August 29 from 11 am to 12:30 pm in Norra Latin (NL) Room 357.
  • The SDGs call on us to ‘leave no one behind’; doing so requires reaching large numbers of people with sanitation and hygiene by 2030, and doing it fairly – especially for the most vulnerable. With USAID, WSSCC will present how good policies and proven practices can generate collective behaviour change in sanitation movements of unprecedented proportion. ‘Reaching Scale with Equity: Innovations and Early Learnings’ takes place August 30 from 5:30 to 7 pm in the UN Water Pavilion, with refreshments provided.
