The Regional CEENIS meeting on Sanitation and Hygiene is to be held on 21-22 September in Istanbul, Turkey. The meeting is organized by Earth Forever Foundation – the country focal point of WSSCC for Bulgaria, and hosted by the 5th World Water Forum – Turkey.

The main purpose of the meeting is to provide a platform for countries within the region to share the progress since the last meeting in Bishkek and experiences of the sector. The meeting will provide participants with an opportunity to forge regional partnerships on common issues. It will also serve as a regional preparatory meeting for the Global Forum on Sanitation and Hygiene.

The main outcome of the meeting will be a regional paper detailing progress and recommendations on action required for the CEENIS countries, including updates on the various recommendations made in 2008 and important new issues. The paper will also feed into the regional sharing lessons during the Global Forum.

The regional meeting shall have a broad representation of government, civil society, business to discuss common issues, enforce the recommendations and lead regional actions. Please find attached the registration form.
