For people new to SuSanA, here you can find the 12 SuSanA working groups:
www.susana.org/en/working-groups/overview

We have also created key document lists for the different thematic categories of the forum. They can be accessed from the so called "front door" page of our forum:

forum.susana.org/

From there you have access to the key documents page:
forum.susana.org/key-documents

This is meant to be for newcomers to obtain a quick orientation.

Dorothee, you have listed some "documents" in your proposed list which are not actually documents but takes people to other websites, i.e. this one:
Sustainable Sanitation and Water Management Toolbox (SSWM): www.sswm.info
and this one:
Sustainable Sanitation for the 21st Century: www.sustainablesanitation.info/meny.html

This is not really in line with collecting "key documents" but it maybe opens up the question if one should also collect a list of "key websites"?

When I have compiled "key documents" for some of the thematic areas in the past, e.g. inclusion and disability, I created a list of both, key documents and also key websites, see here:
forum.susana.org/forum/categories/93-inc...usion-and-disability

or for example here for hand washing:
forum.susana.org/forum/categories/23-han...gory-on-hand-washing

For further inspiration on possible documents, you can also filter the SuSanA library for WG 1 as a filter function (see www.susana.org/library, then use the filter at the top right). This brings up these 87 documents:
www.susana.org/en/resources/library?vbl_...amp;vbl_8%5B38%5D=38

Regards,
Elisabeth

P.S. The last one that you suggested (Worldwide list of ecosan courses by various institutions) is hopelessly out of date (last updated 5 years ago...). Also ecosan and sustainable sanitation is not the same thing as we have discussed in great length on the forum here...]]>

SuSanA Capacity Development: Save the date for the working group meeting at Stockholm WWW, Thursday 27 August (13:30-15:30h) - by: dorothee.spuhler http://forum.susana.org/forum/categories/54-wg-1-capacity-development/14195-susana-capacity-development-save-the-date-for-the-working-group-meeting-at-stockholm-www-thursday-27-august-1330-1530h#14195 http://forum.susana.org/forum/categories/54-wg-1-capacity-development/14195-susana-capacity-development-save-the-date-for-the-working-group-meeting-at-stockholm-www-thursday-27-august-1330-1530h#14195
It has been a long time we did not have a working group meeting and I am therefore delighted to cordially invite you to the upcoming Working Group 1 meeting during the Stockholm World Water Week.
When: Thursday 27 August 13.30 – 15.30 h, prior to the SuSanA working group exchange meeting (16.00 – 19.00h) (venue to be confirmed – stay up to date: www.susana.org/en/events/susana-meetings...na-meeting-stockholm )

The theme this year is going to be:

SuSanA Capacity Development Strategy: addressing the lack of trained WATSAN professionals!
At AfricaSan a very interesting recent IWA report on the lack of capacity within the WATSAN sector in Africa was presented: www.iwa-network.org/downloads/1422745887...risis-wash-gaps.pdf. Furthermore the African Water Association called for partnership to support capacity development. So how can we as a platform respond to the demands in a smart way? We need creative and new ideas and partnership with knowledge institutions to address the lack of trained professionals!

Further topics that are part of the discussion:
- Massive Open Online Course: opportunities and challenges
- Regional thematic training courses (Professional training courses, Smart Start-Up programme, ToTs, Mentoring, etc.)
- Online Knowledge Sharing (SSWM Toolbox, SuSanA Wiki, etc): achievements and trends
- Monitoring Capacity Development


Your contribution: The agenda is not yet defined and please feel free to contact me if you are explicitly invited to contact me if you would like to share your experiences/recent activities/challenges or any other topic during the meeting!: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

Next steps: In order to further shape the agenda , I would like to invite you to a online meeting on July 24 15.00 pm CET. Please let me know if you can join (email above).

Kind regards and looking forward seeing you soon!

I actually also noted to add this on my list but forgot it in the last minute.

The recent report was also presented during AfricaSan3 and it will give us an excellent framework for the upcoming WG1 meeting in Stockholm.
The invitation will soon following with more details and the agenda, but please already save the date: August 27 2015!

Kind regards

I recommend a recent publication by the International Water Association, titled "WASH Human Resource Capacity Gaps in 15 Developing Economies"

www.iwa-network.org/downloads/1422745887...crisis-wash-gaps.pdf

This research report highlights the significant shortage of human resources bases needed to design, construct, operate and maintain WASH services. It also provides an overarching recommendation for the development of national capacity development strategies to ensure sustained, adequate professional and technical capacity.
