Collaboration
La Communauté de pratique pour l’assainissement et l’hygiène dans les pays en voie de développement du Conseil de concertation pour l’approvisionnement en eau et l’assainissement (Communauté de pratique du WSSCC) et l’Alliance mondiale pour l’assainissement durable (SuSanA) ont collaboré à l’organisation d’une discussion thématique conjointe de trois semaines sur les programmes de changement des comportements en matière de santé et d’hygiène, ainsi que leur pérennisation. Pour la première fois, ces deux réseaux ont travaillé ensemble en vue de proposer un événement d’apprentissage collaboratif en ligne. Les deux plateformes comptent chacune plus de 5 000 membres travaillant tous au sein du secteur WASH ou dans des secteurs connexes. Cette discussion thématique a permis de réunir ces deux communautés internationales dans le but de partager des connaissances et d’approfondir les liens entre la recherche et la pratique en matière de changement des comportements. Ce document de synthèse rassemble les principaux points de discussion autour des trois sous-thèmes abordés et en reprend les réflexions majeures.

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.

WSSCC and the global Sustainable Sanitation Alliance (SuSanA) have jointly convened a 3-week thematic discussion on engaging the local private sector in sanitation and hygiene.

Week 1 (26 Oct - 3 Nov 2015) focused on working with the private sector to raise demand through sanitation marketing and financing options including access to household credit, financing for local entrepreneurs or via other means.
