WSSCC Annual Report 2013

2013 was an exceptional year for all those working to improve sanitation and hygiene for the world’s poorest and most marginalized people.

2013 was an exceptional year for all those working to improve sanitation and hygiene for the world’s poorest and most marginalized people. This critical issue is taking a central role in the global development agenda, as the world increasingly recognizes sanitation as the crossroads of development – the intersection of health, economic opportunity, education and gender equality. With the deadline for the Millennium Development Goals fast approaching and debate on the post-2015 targets well underway, policymakers increasingly turned their attention to sanitation, which currently lags behind the other MDGs and must figure prominently in the next generation of development goals. WSSCC's achievements in 2013, summarized in the Annual Report 2013, have played a central role in progress on several fronts: supporting on-the-ground programs that have ended open defecation for 3.7 million people, drawing new attention to the sanitation and hygiene needs of the most vulnerable people, bringing the sector together to improve collaboration and share knowledge, and advocacy for sanitation’s place on the development agenda.

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.

Mid-Term Review of WSSCC’s Medium-Term Strategic Plan 2012-2016 – Executive Summary

WSSCC General

In 2015, the WSSCC commissioned a Mid-Term Review (MTR) of its Medium-Term Strategic Plan (MTSP) 2012-16 to assess its progress against intended results in the MTSP. The MTR was designed to contribute to organisational learning as well as to meet the accountability requirements of WSSCC’s Steering Committee and donors. The MTR covers the period 2012-2014, with additional analysis of progress made as part of the 2015-2016 Biennial Work Plan up to February 2016. The review was undertaken by IFMR LEAD and managed for quality assurance by the International Initiative for Impact Evaluation (3ie) under the 3ie Sanitation and Hygiene Thematic Window.WSSCC has issued a Management Response to the recommendations in the review, with a comprehensive internal response plan developed for each recommendation, under the headings of Programme Strategy, Monitoring and Evaluation and Governance.
