Annual Report 2018


WSSCC launched its Annual Report highlighting 2018 activities during our April Steering Committee meeting.

With 892 million people worldwide still practicing open defecation and only 39% of the global population (2.9 billion people) using a safely managed sanitation facility, achieving Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) Target 6.2 remains the guiding principle for WSSCC’s work. Now in our second year of the 2017-2020 Strategic Plan, we continue to focus on achieving adequate and equitable sanitation and hygiene for all, focusing on putting the most vulnerable and marginalized people first.

Scoping and Diagnosis of the Global Sanitation Fund’s Approach to EQND

Global Sanitation Fund

Cadrage et diagnostic de l’approche du Fonds mondial pour l’assainissement sur l’égalité et la non-discrimination: Résumé analytique, études de cas et réflexions.In 2016, WSSCC’s Global Sanitation Fund (GSF) recruited an independent team of experts to undertake an in-depth two-part diagnosis of GSF’s approach to equality and non-discrimination (EQND). The first part of the diagnosis – an assessment comprising of visits to six countries (Ethiopia, Malawi, Nepal, Nigeria, Senegal and Togo) and a review of documentation across all GSF-supported programmes – was completed in 2017, resulting in this study. While confirming that many people who may be considered disadvantaged have benefitted positively from GSF-supported programmes, the study emphasizes that more proactive attention is needed to ensure no one is left behind. Several recommendations are offered to better integrate EQND throughout the components and stages of all GSF-supported programmes.Summarized version of the study, including the Executive Summary, selected case studies and GSF reflections.Cadrage et diagnostic de l’approche du Fonds mondial pour l’assainissement sur l’égalité et la non-discrimination: Résumé analytique, études de cas et réflexions.Annexes related to the study.
