Catalytic programming for scale and sustainability

Global Sanitation Fund
This publication explores the conversations, reflections and lessons that emanated from the sessions, workshops and presentations at the 2016 GSF Learning Event in Madagascar. The following themes, which were central to the Learning Event, are explored: Incorporating effective approaches for scale and decentralized programme delivery; Incorporating effective approaches to ensure sustainable behaviour change, as well as the sustainability of built capacity within institutions and other stakeholder groups; Ensuring a truly inclusive approach that leaves no one behind; and Addressing monitoring and evaluation challenges.Le GSF vise à contribuer à l’accès universel à des services d’hygiène et d’assainissement adéquats, comme les imaginent les stratégies ou les feuilles de route nationales, et les objectifs de développement durable. Le Fonds tente d’y arriver en suscitant la création, la démonstration et la reproduction de modèles nationaux, axés sur les résultats, provoquant des changements de comportements sanitaires et hygiéniques durables et à grande échelle. Pour ce faire, il est prévu que les programmes passent par trois étapes distinctes, mais qui se chevauchent souvent largement : la conception, leur démonstration et la transition. La Réunion d'apprentissage a donné l’occasion aux programmes de pays de réfléchir à ces trois phases dans le contexte de leur pays. La présente publication est structurée de telle sorte qu’elle reflète ces thèmes et explore les discussions, réflexions et enseignements qui s’y rapportent.

Collaboration
The WSSCC Community of Practice on Sanitation and Hygiene in Developing Countries (WSSCC CoP) and the global Sustainable Sanitation Alliance (SuSanA) came together in late September 2015 to hold a joint three-week thematic discussion on sanitation and hygiene behaviour change programming and sustainability. It was the first time the two networks had come together to host an online collaborative learning event. Both platforms have over 5,000 members each working in WASH and other related sectors. Hence, this thematic discussion was an opportunity to bring together these two global communities to share learning and to explore links between research and practice on behaviour change. This summary paper brings together key discussion points from across the three sub-themes and captures key reflections on each.

Collaboration
The second week of the thematic discussion hosted by WSSCC and the Sustainable Sanitation Alliance (SuSanA) focused on ‘Sustainability for behaviour change’. It explored the social and behavioural norms and dynamics that influence hygiene practices – specifically, handwashing and the use of sanitation facilities.

United Nations World Water Development Report 2016 – Water and Jobs

Collaboration
Three out of four of the jobs worldwide are water-dependent. In fact, water shortages and lack of access may limit economic growth in the years to come, according to the 2016 United Nations World Water Development Report, Water and Jobs, launched on 22 March 2016, World Water Day, in Geneva. From its collection, through various uses, to its ultimate return to the natural environment, water is a key factor in the development of job opportunities either directly related to its management (supply, infrastructure, wastewater treatment, etc.) or in economic sectors that are heavily water-dependent such as agriculture, fishing, power, industry and health. Furthermore, good access to drinking water and sanitation promotes an educated and healthy workforce, which constitutes an essential factor for sustained economic growth. In its analysis of the economic impact of access to water, the report cites numerous studies that show a positive correlation between investments in the water sector and economic growth. It also highlights the key role of water in the transition to a green economy. WSSCC is a contributing author to this report.Le Programme mondial des Nations Unies pour l’évaluation des ressources en eau (WWAP), accueilli et dirigé par l’UNESCO, assure la coordination du travail des 31 membres et 38 partenaires d’ONU-Eau en vue de publier le Rapport mondial des Nations Unies sur la mise en valeur des ressources en eau (WWDR). L’édition 2016 du Rapport mondial des Nations Unies sur la mise en valeur des ressources en eau est consacrée à « L'eau et l'emploi » et vise à informer les décideurs au sein de la communauté de l'eau sur l'importance du lien entre l'eau et l'emploi afin d’assurer le développement social et économique, ainsi que la durabilité de l’environnement, de tous les pays, qu’il soit riche ou pauvre.

Collaboration
The WSSCC Community of Practice on Sanitation and Hygiene in Developing Countries (WSSCC CoP) and the global Sustainable Sanitation Alliance (SuSanA) came together in late September 2015 to hold a joint three-week thematic discussion on sanitation and hygiene behaviour change programming and sustainability. It was the first time the two networks had come together to host an online collaborative learning event. Both platforms have over 5,000 members each working in WASH and other related sectors. Hence, this thematic discussion was an opportunity to bring together these two global communities to share learning and to explore links between research and practice on behaviour change. The focus on sanitation as a business and sanitation entrepreneurs has mushroomed in recent years with numerous organisations (donors, research institutes and think tanks, NGOs, and impact investor / philanthropist foundations, amongst others) exploring the topic. This summary blends the discussions online with a sampling of the numerous resources available on the topic.
