Re: Terms on Wikipedia related to market development. - by: jonpar http://forum.susana.org/component/kunena/55-wg-2-market-development/20950-terms-on-wikipedia-related-to-market-development#20960 http://forum.susana.org/component/kunena/55-wg-2-market-development/20950-terms-on-wikipedia-related-to-market-development#20960
I'm not so convinced that "Public toilet" is sufficiently related to "market development to warrant it to be a Wikipedia term that WG2 members should spend time on. It sounds to me as a term more relevant to Working Group 4 on "Sanitation Systems, Hygiene & Health"

I propose therefore that for WG 2 members, the focus should be on the following:

1) Social marketing- en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Social_marketing

2) Market development- en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Market_development

3) Microcredit for water supply and sanitation
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microcredit_for_wa...upply_and_sanitation

4) Micro-enterprise- en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Micro-enterprise

5) "Self-supply" - en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Draft:Self-supply

Any other terms that we feel to be specifically relevant to WG2 ?

best regards,

Jonathan]]>

I'm working on Wikipedia article on "Public toilet" and am happy to see it on your Market Development list of terms.

It would be great to have your help identifying new technologies and even brands (since several have already been mentioned).

Your input is requested with respect to the Edit-a-thon for World Water Day 2017,.

Please see information at :

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Meetup/S...de#Event_information

These are the terms related to "Market Development" listed:

* Social marketing 
* Microcredit for water supply and sanitation
* Market development 
* Portable toilet 
* Public toilet 
* Pay toilet
* Micro-enterprise 
* Draft:Self-supply

I am not sure why "Portable toilet" and "Public toilet" are attributed specially with market development. I think we can initiate some new definitions if we consider these to be necessary. Please remember that terms such as "Social marketing", "Market development", "Micro-enterprise" an "Self-supply" are general terms that are not specifically related to sanitation (or WASH).

best regards,

Jonathan]]>

WG 2: Take part in SuSanA's Wikipedia Edit-a-thon for World Water Day (19-21 March)! - by: ruthmiskelly http://forum.susana.org/component/kunena/55-wg-2-market-development/20471-wg-2-take-part-in-susanas-wikipedia-edit-a-thon-for-world-water-day-19-21-march#20471 http://forum.susana.org/component/kunena/55-wg-2-market-development/20471-wg-2-take-part-in-susanas-wikipedia-edit-a-thon-for-world-water-day-19-21-march#20471
I would like to let you know about SuSanA's Wikipedia World Water Day Editathon (19th/20th March), an event being organised under the Gates Foundation Phase 3 Grant.

Rationale for this event: Wikipedia has great value to those working on the periphery of the sector. For example local government actors working on policy and legislation or media need information on WASH issues. International UN days such as World Water Day are other occasions when the number of people looking to Wikipedia to gain an understanding of WASH related issues will peak

Objectives:
• Edit WASH-related pages on Wikipedia (with 500 million users a month it is the world’s 5th most visited website!). This includes pages that are not specifically about WASH topics but that should provide links to WASH topics, such as the page about malnutrition.
• Improve quality and quantity of information available on Water, Sanitation and Hygiene.
• Enable SuSanA members and WGs to share their knowledge, which can leverage progress towards the achievement of SDG6: Ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all.


The Edit-a-thon runs from 19th-20th March, and you can get involved from wherever you are in the world, for whatever amount of time (from 10 mins to 48 hrs ) you can spare!

As 1 of the partners in this grant, WaterAid will be supporting WG2, amongst other WGs, to get involved in the Edit-a-thon.

I will start by proposing some Wikipedia pages which WG2 members may be interested in editing.

Here are some suggestions:

Social Marketing
Microcredit for water supply and sanitation
Market development
Portable toilet
Public toilet
Pay toilet
Sustainable Development Goals (with a focus on adding content under SDG6)
Micro-enterprise


What does the group think about focusing on these pages? Have you got ideas of more useful/relevant ones? Please enter your views here in this thread.


Soon, I'll be sharing some short videos which explain how you can make basic edits on Wikipedia pages including adding references, adding content or adding an image.

Looking forward to hearing the thoughts/questions and comments from WG2!]]>

beamexchange.org/community/events/details/536/

The webinar will present five different strategies or pathways for getting to scale. The examples/case studies are agricultural programs in Nigeria and Cambodia but I imagine that the strategies and analyses of supporting and hindering factors are also applicable to the WASH sector and other sectors tackled by the SDGs.]]>

I wanted to provide a quick summary of the themes coming out of the working group 2 meeting discussion in Stockholm. Thank you to Katie Whitehouse from Oxfam for putting it together.

Communication - There is a need to articulate 'market development' clearly and consistently without over-simplifying its complexity and breadth of opportunities whilst demonstrating its value and applicability at different stakeholder levels

Role - we need to more clearly understand what role the sector is best suited to play if supporting market development

How our role shifts according to market system / WASH value chain maturity - coming to the last point raised, how do we support market development where value chains are weak or non-existent

Emphasizing the need to get market systems and needs/user/consumer analysis right and how to do it - in order to inform where we need to support market development within the market system and how to best design those programmes selected

As a next step we wanted to try to get a more robust conversation going within the Working Group and also define what outputs . As a start does anyone have any comments they'd like to share on the WG meeting summary?

I'd like to comment that as practitioners I recommend we all refresh our understanding of market development. I think the best place to do this is on the BEAM Exchange . Building Effective and Accessible Markets. I'd also like to comment that where value chains are weak or non-existent then we need to dig deeper into why the market is failing and understand the root causes, and then look at a partnership approach. We (sanitation people) might not always be the right people to address a market failure and that's okay. I think we also need to distinguish the conversation between development and humanitarian assistance. Yes these sectors can learn from each other, and it can be valuable to put a market development lens on in a humanitarian context, but there are clearly different things you can do in a development context vs. a humanitarian context. That said I think its important to continue to be clear what we mean by market development approach (that can clearly get confused quickly) and make sure practitioners are talking about the same thing in conversations. That might be something this working group can help do. If anyone has any requests on what outputs they'd like to see from WG2 that would be great as well. Please bear in mind that these outputs would need to be something that can be done with limited time and resources!

Thank you all for providing inputs and keeping the conversation going. I look forward to hearing from you all. If anyone would like to write me off line, please feel free to email me at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ]]>

So far we've not received any feedback as to which documents you find useful in your work that you would recommend to others.

All we are looking for is the title of the document and a sentence or two why you think this is a really useful document that others people should take time to look at.

I propose that you have until the end of this month to send your list of recommendations. thanks in advance for your contributions.
