I think it was a superactive and interesting SuSanA week.
I hope to see some of you soon in other meetings or online discussions throughout the year.
Before World Water Week I was invited by WSSCC to write a blog for Guardian about menstruation management and saniation system
It was published during the week and I am happy to share it with you.
In the article I call for more knowledge about how menstruation interact with sanitation system. It would be great to have some input on this topic within this group.
Please share the link so that the call on more resources will reach the ones that possess those.

Good luck with the second edition of the WASH in Schools story book!
I am glad you are also thinking of an online version (Wiki); as that would be open access, it should be fairly easy to also move content across to Wikipedia from that Wiki page later.

We have a page on WASH in Wikipedia (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WASH), which still needs a bit more work; we could also think about starting one on "WASH in Schools".

One new example that seems to me worth including is this one about UDDTs at a school in Ukunda, Kenya. Doreen recently visited it, three years after inauguration, and had only positive things to report, see here:

    I am very glad to announce that the second edition of the SuSanA WASH in Schools stories is ready and will be launched on the SuSanA meeting at Stockholm WWW by end of this month. Afterwards it will be available online as well.

    As not all stories which were sent in response to the call could be included in this publication, they will be made available in a SuSanA online Wiki on WASH in Schools. The wiki will be a growing online collection on best practices around sustainable sanitation. The establishment of the WASH in Schools section of the wiki is another activity in the working group 7.

    Best regards

    the WASH in Schools programme in Kerala as well as the broader initiative "good hygiene practices" are very interesting. Thanks for sharing!
    Would you be interested to publish this project in a story-like format in the second edition of the publication "Making WASH in Schools more Sustainable" (please see www.susana.org/en/resources/library/details/2077 ) ?
    The stories of the upcoming edition will be clustered around different topics. Amongst others we will focus on promising upscaling approaches and strategies, so it might be an option to feature this aspect of your story.

    Best regards, I would be pleased to hear from you!

    my name is Isabell. I am happy to work together with Claudia on the second edition of the WASH in schools publication. We are still looking for good case stories (see thread at the bottom of following page: forum.susana.org/forum/categories/60-wg-...2&start=36#10510).
    I think your story about the Microflush-Biofil toilet system you installed in a school in Ghana is very interesting.. Would you still like to share this story?

    Thank you, I look forward to hearing from you!

    Thanks for your questions on target audience. The main purpose of this publication from my point of view was to show a variety of solutions and strategies to the challenges in schools. As the SuSanA networks has such a rich community there is plenty to learn. I certainly hope that readers like programme planners or engineers can pick some useful information on how to make projects more sustainable. We have tried to showcase these key learnings alongside each stories categorised according to the sustainabilty criteria.

    In the long run it would be helpful to distill the most promising strategies for WASH in schools in a kind of guidance manual. At the moment Claudia looks into a second editon of this publication with more interesting case stories.

    So far we are not intending to translate the stories into wiki pages, but we will see what makes most sense in future to make information easier available to readers.

    We are in the process of printing a couple hundred hard copies at GIZ so interested colleagues can write to use.

    Cheers
    Christian

    Our link to the world of the school is so important, and must be encouraged more and more.
    Although I am now "semi" retired, whatever that means, I am still tinkering about in the back yard and around our little research site in Epworth, close to Harare. Covering a range of topics which includes water supply and hygiene as well as sanitation.
    Keep well and keep up the great work at Susana

    Congratulations to you and your co-authors Claudia, Steffi and Amanda for getting this publication finished! It looks like a very nice piece of work!

    Who do you envisage as the main target audience? How could the book best be utilised by people?
    Have you thought about taking the content and also transferring it into Wiki pages which will soon be available here on the SuSanA website: www.susana.org/en/resources/wiki#akvopedia:Sanitation Portal?
    Would that be fast & easy to do or rather lengthy?

    And can people apply to GIZ to receive hardcopies if they need them for specific purposes?

    Little hint for everyone: if you want to win a free hardcopy of this publication, you can also take part in our forum user survey (if you haven't done so yet) and write in the last comment field that you wish to get this publication as a prize! Good luck! GIZ has donated 10 hardcopies plus postage for this purpose. As we have in total 150 prizes on offer, you should have a good chance of getting one!

    The link to the survey is here in this post:

    Thank you Maren for further stories. I guess there is already a big pile of more projects for sharing!

    For the first round I am happy to share with you the link for the 12 case stories of our finalised SuSanA publication "Making WASH in Schools more Sustainable". This discussion thread documents all the contributions along this almost 2 year long process. Thank you to all for this great effort and joint collaboration and especially to Claudia Wendland who is the lead of the working group 7 on schools.
