Re: Join PSI at UNC's Water and Health Conference

Join PSI at UNC's Water and Health Conference ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

On October 10-14th, PSI will join hundreds of water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) professionals at the University of North Carolina for the 2016 Water and Health Conference. We invite you to take part as we discuss PSI's work in WASH during a number of side events, presentations and poster sessions. Topics include everything from knowledge management to business model development for fecal sludge management to learning from sanitation start-ups. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Presentation Business Model Development for Fecal Sludge Management: Insights from Bihar, India Presentation by Sanjay Singh, PSI India Monday, October 10th 4:00PM - 5:00PM Bellflower

Bihar, India accounts for about a third of the Open Defecation (OD) globally and is clearly facing asanitation crisis. Since 2012, with funding from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Population Services International (PSI) has been implementing the 3SI project in Bihar to increase access and use of toilets in rural areas. The team quickly identified that without a safe emptying solution, the project would only serve to delay the fecal contamination of the environment. In 2014, PSI began the implementation of Project Prasaadhan to address critical gaps in fecal sludge management (FSM) and to ensure a systems approach towards a 'shit-free' Bihar. This presentation will discuss the early results and lessons learned from Project Prasaadhan to date. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Side Events Building the Evidence Base for Pre-crisis Market-based WASH Programming Convened by Oxfam, CRS, PSI, OFDA, and The Water Institute at UNC Wednesday, October 12th 10:30AM to 12:00PM Bellflower

Engagement with market actors is increasingly being recognized to be a key part of humanitarian programming as these actors are well positioned to provide services and distribute commodities to affected communities. In order to build local, national and international stakeholder interest and buy-in to the concept of market-based programming, there is a need to develop and test a robust evaluation and monitoring framework to support market-based programming in the target countries and subsequently to build the evidence-base for market-based programming. This session will look at the current thinking in relation to monitoring, evaluation, accountability and learning (MEAL) that is being developed to support market-based programming in the humanitarian WASH sector and will consider the strengths and weakness of the presented approaches for application in markets-based programming at different stages of the emergency cycle. Learning from Knowledge Management Failures: An opportunity to learn from others Convened by USAID, PSI, FIU, Global Communities Thursday, October 13th 8:30AM-10AM Bellflower

The side event aims to stimulate interest in the WASH sector, demonstrate the soundness of knowledge management and information sharing in WASH, and highlight the importance of working collaboratively with the beneficiaries at each step of WASH projects and programs. Such approach is more likely to ensure sustainability, in that it will urge the beneficiaries to take ownership of WASH activities after projects and programs have closed out. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
