Re: WASH & Nutrition events @ Stockholm for the 2015 Word Water Week

Dear members/followers of WG 12,

I would like firstly to thank you for your participation during the side event ACF-GWN on WWW.

The WIN topic has been strongly pushed in Stockholm this year. There is a significant improvement in the involvement of nutrition sector in this transversal topic.

ACF-GWN session on how to operationalize WASH in Nut was organised to have first an institutional, research and operational update on current practices, and then three working groups (institutional, operations and research) listing recommendations. Recommendations (9 in total) have then been compiled and validated: please see doc attached.

Some important remarks:
a) The 1000 days window for intervention is critical for proper WASH interventions (domestic hygiene, child feces management, waste management) – Oliver Cumming, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine
b) Germany Government strategy is supporting the “one world no hunger” initiative, which includes multi-sectoral approach in 11 countries to prevent under nutrition - Ms. Hieronymus, Head of Division: Special Unit “One World No Hunger”, German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development and Mr. Francois Marre, Heads of Department BMZ
c) Burkina Faso Minister of agriculture, water resources, sanitation and food security, insisted on the actions accompanying the strategies (food hygiene, CLTS, hand washing, improve water quality, improve coverage, the issue of surveillance and early identification of undernourished people) - Francois Lompo
d) ACF spoke of seasonality, ORS/Zinc, SAM targeting, NCA, challenge in measuring diarrhea, and impact of WASH projects on prevention, relapse and treatment – Claire Gaillardou

Main conclusions from the working groups appear in ppt attached. Here are orientations:

Research group:
- Quantify the impact of what works and where and what interventions are cost effective
- Focus on acute
- How to measure nutrition and WASH more consistently (bio indicators markers, etc.)
- Explore enabling factors that ensures best impact for an intervention
- Share key studies results – better dissemination of the key research findings

Institutional group:
- Funding the gaps
- Global policies, appeals and budgets for integrated projects
- Ensure Nutrition sector involves more WASH and vice versa
- Consider funding the two ways integration, especially Nut in WASH (food hygiene and food conservation, hand washing with soap before eating)
- Use existing platforms such as SUN to scale up WASH in Nutrition policy approach


Operational group:
- BC strategies Ensuring that WASH and nutrition projects include a Behaviour Change strategy
- Capacity of delivering service, focus on engage and training of health practitioners
- Value chain to support financial sustainability (PPP, innovative social marketing etc.)
- Meal approach

Please, do not hesitate to amend this document.

In addition please also find under the following link, all the presentations of the working group meeting: dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/16507450/sww...%20presentations.zip

Finally, an online WASH in Nutrition mapping form is actually in progress and will be uploaded to SuSana WG 12 forum soon.

Regards,

Claire GAILLARDOU
