2013 WASH Sustainability Forum March 11 – 12

Sat, 02Mar2013 Comments off

 This Forum will examine the role of collaboration, particularly with governments, in ensuring lasting WASH services. Bringing together a broad mix of stakeholders, the day’s conversation will provide a practical foundation for strengthening collaboration with governments and other development partners around the world. Further, this event will help to foster initial conversations around coordination, the 2013 theme for World Water Day

Aligned with the WASH Sustainability Charter, this forum is being hosted by The World Bank Group, UNICEF, Global Water Challenge, WASH Advocates, Aguaconsult, and the IRC International Water and Sanitation Centre. There is no charge for this event.

Event details/more…



In 2010, over 40 organizations gathered at the first Sustainability Forum to discuss sustainable water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) services at scale. The following year, nearly 100 stakeholders from over 50 organizations came together to develop a common set of sustainability principles, which became the WASH Sustainability Charter. The momentum continued to build with new sustainability initiatives, learning forums, webinars, and presentations at global conferences. Sustainability has become a common topic as organizational practices and programmatic work shift from individual projects to sustainable services.

In early 2012, individuals from a consortium of organizations (Aguaconsult, Global Water Challenge, IRC and WASH Advocates) came together to build on previous work around sustainability and create as a dynamic hub of the sustainability conversation. more about..
