Advocacy Sourcebook

Collaboration
Out of every ten people in the world today, four do not have adequate sanitation and two don’t have access to clean water. Though preventable, related diseases cause the death of a child every 15 seconds. Water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) campaigns, with their use of practical thinking and political commitment, can make a huge impact on these figures. Placing people’s initiatives and capacity for self-reliance at the centre of achieving water and sanitation targets, they address the issues of sustainability, affordability and equity. To complement the WASH approach, WSSCC and WaterAid have produced this practical guide on water and sanitation related advocacy work. In its four sections you'll find explanations of the different advocacy tools, practical examples of advocacy work, information on key policy actors and processes, along with how to influence them at local, national and international levels.

WSSCC Annual Report 2008

WSSCC General
In this Annual Report, you can find out about all the many highlights of WSSCC's year in 2008. Steady growth was the result of a refocus on sanitation, of which there are many more without than there are without water, with fewer voices championing their need. Throughout the year, the backdrop and context for much of WSSCC’s work was The United Nations- 2008 was also a year of massive growth in WWSSCC membership. There were 700 individual members on 1 January 2008. By the end of the year the total was 2,200. The result of increased levels of WSSCC activity, making it more visible and encouraging more people to join, along with greater integration of national coalition membership roles with those globally in the Secretariat. The first full year of implementing the new “three pillar” strategy (the Networking and Knowledge Management, Advocacy and Communications, and Global Sanitation Fund (GSF) departments) has also helped WSSCC make good progress. March saw the launch of the Global Sanitation, with more than US$60 million committed by year end towards its intended $100 million annual turnover.
