National Coordinators Report – Highlights 2015

Collaboration
Sixteen National Coordinators work within WASH coalitions in their home countries, leading WSSCC’s work, serving as coalition heads and spokespersons, and advocating on WASH issues. National Coordinators carry out national and local level networking, knowledge management, advocacy and communications activities, and working on facilitating and implementing Global Sanitation Fund (GSF) programme activities. Working with partners and networks, they aim to position sanitation and hygiene onto the national agenda and prioritize specific investments for sanitation and hygiene. This report shows how WSSCC's National Coordinators have increased the visibility of WSSCC in their respective countries and how their collective commitment has contributed to greater commitments from rights holders, duty bearers, the private sector and partners.Rapport des coordinateurs nationaux 2015 - Les coordinateurs nationaux du WSSCC sont actifs dans 16 pays d’Asie du Sud-Est, d’Afrique de l’Ouest, d’Asie du Sud et d’Afrique orientale et australe. En 2015, ils ont pu faciliter et entreprendre des activités variées, qui illustrent l’activisme local et mondial en faveur du secteur WASH, et le dynamisme de l’approche collaborative du WSSCC. Avec l’adoption des objectifs de développement durable (ODD) en septembre 2015, les coordinateurs nationaux continuent de contribuer à ce secteur en portant davantage attention aux questions d’expansion et d’équité, conformément aux nouveaux objectifs. Ils canalisent les efforts des coalitions WASH et des autorités publiques pour mettre fin à la pratique de la défécation à l’air libre, et veillent à ce que les améliorations sanitaires soient adaptées aux personnes vulnérables et aux groupes socialement marginalisés. Pour se concentrer sur l’expansion et l’équité, ils s’appuient sur les résultats et l’expérience des 13 programmes nationaux d’amélioration de l’assainissement et de l’hygiène soutenus par le GSF ainsi que sur les activités du WSSCC relatives à l’égalité et à la non-discrimination.

East Africa Workshop on Scaling Up of CLTS and Enhancing Area Cov...

Collaboration
This document reports on an international workshop on Scaling up of CLTS and Enhancing Area Coverage: Running the last miles towards MDG sanitation targeting the next 24 months. The workshop brought together participants from eight African countries, as well as one Caribbean country, to share experience to date and chalk out strategies for moving the sanitation agenda forward over the next two years. Nearly all participants were highly experienced CLTS practitioners involved in mostly large-scale CLTS sanitation programmes. The workshop was designed to create a learning environment in which best practice, challenges and responses from the different countries could be shared, discussed, and where appropriate absorbed into the action plans of all countries. The eight African countries – hosts Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Somalia, Madagascar, Sudan, South Sudan and Ghana – represented a range of stages and scales of CLTS work, as well as a range of funding mechanisms and implementation modalities.

The Road to Total Sanitation: Notes from a field trip and worksho...

WSSCC General
The aim of this learning and sharing exercise was to: explore partners' activities on rural sanitation especially, but not limited to, CLTS, Sanitation Marketing and PHAST; build consensus on the key components needed to take CLTS and Sanitation Marketing to scale with equity and sustainability; further explore collaboration, linkages, and partnerships; and make recommendations on how to scale up which are transferable across all countries in the region. These notes reflect the conclusions, recommendations, and lessons learnt from this trip. They are based on a two-day workshop that was held directly following a field trip visiting various projects in Tanzania.
