"Sustainable sanitation and the SDGs: interlinkages and opportunities” - Interlinkages Document available in the SuSanA Library

Dear all,

In the context of the 10th SuSanA anniversary, the SuSanA Secretariat together with the team of authors composed by Roland Schertenleib, Elisabeth Kvarnström and Patrick Bracken had updated the SuSanA Vision (you can find the discussion here and the document in the SuSanA Library). The document outlines the contribution of sustainable sanitation in the context of the 2030 Agenda and therefore SuSanA’s role in it.

To facilitate the discussion, the group prepared a background document – “Sustainable sanitation and the SDGs: interlinkages and opportunities” or, in short, just “Interlinkages Document”. The document outlines how sanitation links to all sustainable development goals and assesses the challenges and opportunities to the sanitation sector. SuSanA core group members and WG leads have provided valuable input to this document, highlighting how the topics of the WGs are linked to other SDGs. At the 24th SuSanA Meeting in Stockholm this year, Roland and Elisabeth have presented the document and now the document is available to all SuSanA community: www.susana.org/en/resources/library/details/2859 .

As the successful implementation of sustainable sanitation systems does not only contribute to SDG6, but also to many of the other SDGs, redoubling the efforts within the sanitation sector and effective outreach for intersectoral cooperation will be required. The interlinkages document aims at stimulating and supporting the initiation of this process.

In case there is any aspect in this document that you would like to explore, you can get in contact with the respective working group leads.

We hope that this document will inspire and contribute to your work.

Kind regards,
Cecilia – on behalf of the SuSanA Secretariat
