AfricaSan 4: Fourth Africa Conference on Sanitation and Hygiene

AfricaSan will be held in the King Fahd palace hotel in Dakar, Senegal from 8 - 10 October 2014.

AfricaSan is one of AMCOW’s path-breaker initiatives borne out of the recognition that investment in sanitation has historically been seriously neglected on our continent and that addressing Africa’s sanitation challenge involves mobilizing facts and arguments and helping agencies and governments shape strategies for action at many levels. AfricaSan therefore provides a forum for sanitation technical experts to exchange lessons to identify approaches and technologies that work best in their local circumstances. AfricaSan is a highly successful brand helping the realization of the eThekwini Commitments. As part of the AfricaSan drive, the AfricaSan Awards was introduced in 2008.

Note: Originally scheduled in May, AfricaSan 4 has been postponed to October

Save the date: 19th SuSanA meeting in Dakar Senegal 6-7 October

The AfricaSan 4 will take place from 8-10 October in Dakar, Senegal. To make use of this opportunity the SuSanA Secretariat is planning a two Day SuSanA meeting prior to the AfricaSan in Dakar on the 6 and 7 October. The meeting will build on the developments in the SuSanA meeting in Stockholm and focus on the contributions SuSanA can make in Africa through Africasan. Also, a number of sessions from SuSanA and its partner organisations are planned during the Africasan conference. Registration for this meeting will be announced at a later date.
Best regards,

Rahul Ingle

On behalf of organizers of Africasan 4
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

AfricaSan colleagues

AfricaSan 4 is being held on October 8-10 2014 in Dakar, Senegal. The website is now up and running and registration is open: www.africasan.com

AfricaSan 4 continues the AfricaSan tradition, building on approaches that have worked. It is essentially a political meeting seeking to raise the priority of sanitation amongst the new generation of san leaders. The timing is AfricaSan 4 is fortuitous both as the last AfricaSan meeting to assess progress against the MDGs; as well as being well-positioned to build momentum on sanitation and hygiene for the SDGs.
The theme of AfricaSan 4 “Making Sanitation for All a Reality in Africa” responds to the visionary ideals of a new generation of Africa’s sanitation ministers. It sets the bar high so that the highly successful eThekwini commitment process can consider a new set of targets and indicators to help accelerate progress towards universal coverage.
The AfricaSan 4 theme not only concerns itself with sanitation access. It seeks to address the full sanitation value chain (containment, emptying, transport, treatment, disposal and reuse). Moreover it also focuses on a full sanitation ladder of access, including making Africa open-defecation free. By sanitation is also implied hygiene: AfricaSan 4 will host a specific discussion on how to accelerate good hygiene behaviour change.
AfricaSan 4 has also had a strong regional and country process leading up to the Dakar meeting. Led by the chair of AMCOW’s AfricaSan Task Force Subcommittee, WSP, countries have engaged in three substantial sub-regional meetings in which countries have been involved in a peer-to-peer exchange on progress and sector bottlenecks in country action plans. Progress on country action plans and against the eThekwini commitments have been mapped and the results will be presented at AfricaSan 4. A feature of this preparatory process was the conscious effort to align the different sanitation sector monitoring processes in Africa.

Get in engaged with this important opportunity for sanitation in Africa, forward this email to colleagues who may be interested and come to Dakar!

Best wishes,

Piers Cross
AMCOW Lead Advisor on AfricaSan
