WSSCC Strategic Plan 2017-2020

WSSCC General

WSSCC’s new Strategic Plan will guide the organization over the next four years. It identifies the results WSSCC will achieve, the issues it will work on, and where it will work. The Strategy also presents how WSSCC will deploy its effective mix of tools, instruments, knowledge, and human and financial resources to make a meaningful and sustainable impact on the lives of millions people who lack sanitation and hygiene, especially those in the most vulnerable situations. Because WSSCC’s work is guided by the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that aim to transform the world by 2030, this Strategy is the first in a sequence of plans that later will guide WSSCC’s work from 2021-25 and 2026-30, respectively.Le nouveau Plan Stratégique du WSSCC guidera l'organisation au cours des quatre prochaines années. Il identifie les résultats que le WSSCC atteindra, les enjeux sur lesquels il travaillera et où il fonctionnera. La Stratégie présente également comment le WSSCC déploiera sa panoplie efficace d'outils, d'instruments, de connaissances et de ressources humaines et financières pour avoir un impact significatif et durable sur la vie de millions de personnes qui manquent d'assainissement et d'hygiène, en particulier dans les situations les plus vulnérables. Parce que le travail du WSSCC est guidé par les objectifs de développement durable (ODD) qui visent à transformer le monde d'ici à 2030, cette Stratégie est la première d'une série de plans qui guideront plus tard le travail du WSSCC de 2021-25 et 2026-30 respectivement.
