Side-Event Invitation: Realizing the Human Rights to Water and Sanitation

Learning Members Sanitation Action Summit
Given the significant progress and the ever-increasing attention to women and girls health and access to WASH, it is time to solidify these efforts and elevate ongoing national developments to the UN level. The aim is to ensure the reflection of language on issues such as menstrual health in resolutions, reports and other official documents and to use the resulting official language to feed back into national and global policy and monitoring processes. During the September session of the Human Rights Council in Geneva, The Permanent Missions of Germany, Niger and Spain, WSSCC, Columbia University and others have come together to share lessons and approaches to implementing and realizing the human rights to water and sanitation for women and girls everywhere. The session will run for 1.30 hour, and will include short presentations and a facilitated discussion. Download the conference programme here.

WSSCC 2017 Highlights

By the end of 2017, 14,600 new communities across the GSF targeted programme areas in 12 countries became nationally certified as Open Defecation Free (ODF). This represents 5 million people living in newly certified ODF environments. Ensuring quality-built latrines and access to handwashing facilities remained a priority for WSSCC. Moreover, over 3 million people had gained access to improved toilets as per the WHO/UNICEF Joint Monitoring Programme for Water Supply (JMP) definition of basic and limited sanitation facilities within the GSF targeted areas. GSF-supported programmes continued to collaborate and partner with education-related stakeholders in the programmed areas, guaranteeing the presence of single-sex sanitation and hygiene facilities in approximately 574 schools.
