Greetings WG9 [Sanitation as a Business and Public Awareness] Member:

Hope this message finds everyone well. We are writing to let you know about a website platform created by the United Nations with civil society groups to collect input from the global community regarding post-2015 "development goals" from January 15th to February 15th. The World We Want 2015 website is collecting input on a variety of themes [called consultations] including themes related to water and sanitation. This information will be compiled and shared at the 68th General UN Assembly to inform future development goals/directions. For more information about the initiative, please see the Water Thematic Consultation page www.worldwewant2015.org/water and this blog post by a WG9 group member. waterfortheages.org/2013/02/01/what-kind...-we-want-after-2015/

There are three sub-consultations in the water area: 1) Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene, 2) Water Resources Management, and 3) Wastewater and Water Quality. WG1 [capacity development] has already contributed a draft statement for the Wastewater Sub-Consultation, and WG10 [operation and maintenance] is collecting input now. It would be great if WG9 could also provide a collective statement, perhaps addressing the WASH sub-consultation. To collect your input we have opened this thread on the SuSanA Forum.

Questions for the current week are:
1. What do you think that you and others need to do to change the current situation, in terms of water governance, such as policies, ways of working, guidance, processes and decision-making?
2. What message would you bring to those that are now formulating the world’s new development agenda?
3. What do you see as the main constraints for a world in which everyone has access to a safe and sustainable water and sanitation service?

You are provide input here before February 14. We can compile a collective statement, and submit it to the World We Want 2015 website on February 15th. We appreciate you sharing your knowledge, and helping make sure toilets stay on the agenda of those working globally.

Regards -

Carol McCreary and Abby Brown

We at " EcoLoo.eu" believe that solving the global sanitation problem will have a domino positive impact on Environment, poverty, health, water, energy, women, organic agriculture, food security & quality, society, well being & stability in many ways; especially if we engage CSR companies, NGO’s, NPO’s, help organizations, UN, development programs and banks in the process.

Awarness and education are some of the challenges we face. More funds to involve people in such programs will be very helpful.

We need to stop flushing and wasting 30% of our precious water in the toilet, and consider waste as a resource instead of a problem. Water should be only used for drinking and hygiene purposes, but prohibited to be flushed in the drain to transport the human waste.

We should consider the biological sanitation solutions as some good and functional future toilets as they are affordable, environmental friendly, sustainable, odor-free, maintenance-free, consumes no energy nor water, and the end product is fertilizer.

Besides, corporations should not focus only on establishing profitable businesses, but effective, long-term and sustainable ones based on an “Inclusive Business Model” and Sustainagility in order to create job and business opportunities locally starting at production, distribution, installation, support.. etc.

Thanks, Imad, Yes, global sanitation addresses the whole constellation of issues you list in your first sentence. Yes, businesses need more bottom lines than profit. " Job creation and business opportunities locally" is very important.

Re, EcoLoo, I'm very interested in enclosed long term composting but wonder why you mention 30 years? Is that how long a home system can go without emptying? It seems a bit long for hygienization. Very nice graphic here! www.ecoloo.eu/usingwater.html Good luck with business. Following on Twitter. How about following @PortlandPHLUSH ?
