Dear SuSanA community,

we are excited to announce the establishment of a new Regional Chapter for the Middle East and North Africa, called 'Regional Chapter MENA'.

The idea of a chapter dedicated to the MENA region was born in times of severe water scarcity, ongoing conflicts and devastating humanitarian crises in this region of the world. In order to enhance regional capacity to implement sustainable sanitation and water management, the Regional Chapter aims to gather resources relevant and adapted to the MENA context and make them accessible for the Arabic speaking communities, NGOs, refugee camp managers and other key stakeholders affected by the recent crises.

The SuSanA Regional Chapter MENA will be embedded in the SuSanA Portal with:
- SuSanA Publications and Library (English/Arabic)
- “Thematic Discussion Series” / Discussion Forum (English/Arabic)
- Partner Profiles
- Projects
- Training Materials and Events

To create an interactive and informative chapter, cewas Middle East, GIZ and other partners are now calling for contributions to one or more of the different functionalities of the chapter, incl. (Arabic) publications, training materials, topics for discussion forums, projects and initiatives and member requests.

A first version of the SuSanA Middle East chapter will be launched at the Arab Water Week in Jordan 2017. SuSanA will be represented with a joint booth of its members and promoted in a dedicated session. We welcome all members, partners and interested participants to join us!

Looking forward to your feedback and contributions.

All the best,
Lillian (cewas Middle East)

The SuSanA Regional Chapter MENA has been launched at the session “first day of the Arab Water Week (AWW)” taking place at the Dead Sea, Jordan from 19-23 March 2017. The session was hosted by the SuSanA Partners ACWUA, GIZ and SDC.

Next to available resources and engagement opportunities, contributions to the Regional Chapter MENA from SuSanA partners cewas/ seecon, eawag and BORDA have been presented. The session closed with a vivid discussion between Mufleh Alalaween Al Abbadi (SDC), Dr. Almoayied Assayed (Royal Scientific Society), Eng. Malek Rawashedeh (ASG WAJ) and Prof. Dr. Ghada Kassab (University of Jordan), moderated by Dr. Maha Halalshe (GIZ Jordan), about the main challenges within the MENA Region to be addressed by the SuSanA Regional Chapter MENA in future.

One of the key publications within the new released SuSanA Regional Chapter MENA Library was launched right afterwards: The Arabic version of the eawag Compendium of Sanitation Systems and Technologies. Accompanied by TV and media representatives as well as the Chief General of ACWUA Khaldoun Kashman, and Christoph Lüthi (eawag) presented the Compendium in Arabic to the public.
