WSSCC Membership

WSSCC members are committed to achieving universal access to safe and affordable drinking water, adequate and equitable sanitation and hygiene for all, and ending open defecation – paying special attention to the needs of women and girls

We are a global, multi-stakeholder membership and partnership-based organization that works at the local, national, regional, and global levels to advance sanitation and hygiene for all, with a particular focus on poor, vulnerable, and marginalized people, so that no one is left behind. We use this as the basis for related achievements in health, education, gender equality, urbanization, and climate change.

Good governance is at the heart of our commitment to serve those central to our mission and is the foundation for sustainable programming and accountability to our stakeholders and donors.

“As a WSSCC member, I’ve had the opportunity to learn about what other countries are doing well and struggling with. This is encouraging for all of us, especially in the developing countries to understand how we are progressing alongside others. This platform has created networks for me in the WASH sector that I would not have otherwise had.”

– WSSCC member Maria Mutagamba

The membership base reflects the diverse groups of individuals working to make water, sanitation and hygiene global priorities. As such, it is comprised of individuals who may be working in, or representing, civil society, local and national governments, academia, the development sector, and UN agencies among others.

Both individuals and organizations can become members. WSSCC welcomes people in the same organization to join, so that the benefits of membership may be extended. Where there is a significant collective interest within your organization in supporting WSSCC’s work, we encourage you to contact us to discuss partnership opportunities.

Although WSSCC membership is not limited to a specific duration, we request an annual membership update. Please take note of the two membership types below:

  1. If you are an activist or practitioner who is directly involved in the WASH sector, please maintain your profile to reflect up to date details on your WASH-related work
  2. If you agree with our mission and want to stay informed but are not directly involved in WSSCC’s work or the WASH sector, please review and periodically update your profile

Thank you for your interest in joining the WSSCC. If you have any concerns related to membership, you can reach us at

By accepting this invitation, you will be added to the Community and your login details will be validated.  If you would like us to re-send you an invitation, please get in touch with us.

WSSCC is a unique organization, both among other international collaborative bodies and in the water, sanitation and hygiene sector. Our member ethos contributes to that uniqueness, as diverse and actively-engaged members are instrumental in voicing the concerns of those in need and in both directing and delivering our work.
