Will local governments ever be able to meet policy obligations for WASH in schools? Join the debate!

You are invited to join the 3rd and final e-debate on WASH in Schools, inspired by lessons from the SWASH+ Project. It is taking place from 5-16 November at: washurl.net/fzute8

The focus on this last e-debate is on whether local governments will or will not be able to generate enough resources to meet their policy obligations for water supply, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) in schools.

Under genuine decentralization, local government can meet their policy obligations says Senior Programme Officer Dr. V. Kurian Baby in his opening argument. Ex-national coordinator Sanitation & Hygiene from UNICEF India Sumita Ganguly takes the opposite position, arguing that local government will not prioritize WASH in schools in a resource competitive environment.

Add you own arguments to this debate. For more information go to:

I checked today the website and it seems that this debate on WASH in Schools will go on until 23 November. So there is some time to give your opinion on this issue.

Also, the summary of the previous debates can be read here: www.washinschools.info/page/2033 .

Best,

local government will not meet their this kind of policy , as most of the officials are not schoolong thier children in the local schools , so it is very difficult for them to take this matter serious. :pinch:

capitalist dont take failure as an option , we need to strive and fight for what is right..........
