Sanitation Community of Practice (SanCoP) notices

Dear all,

A few notices of upcoming events from SanCoP.

A reminder about our next event on Wednesday 11th September, 4-7pm at the Concern offices, London on the topic of Urban sanitation in low income countries: what are the main lessons learned by INGO's from past failures or successes? Please e-mail This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ASAP if you would like to attend.

Urban contexts are very challenging and require specific adaptations of the approaches used by INGOs for the sanitation component of their WASH programmes. Important practical lessons can be learned from past experiences including failures. This event firstly aims to brings together representatives from INGOs and the WASH community to discuss their experiences of interventions relating to sanitation in urban areas within low-income countries (both successes and failures). Once experiences have been shared the session will look to identify and discuss possible solutions to any limitations found.

It is hoped that as many participants as possible will present examples of their experiences (both positive and negative) in urban sanitation to the workshop and round table discussions will take place to identify how interventions could have been improved and in moving forward how urban sanitation could be better tackled by INGO’s.


The next SanCoP UK event will be hosted by Cranfield University on Wednesday 20th November 2013 with the broad theme of ‘Behaviour Change in Sanitation’. Cranfield University will be organising a bus from Milton Keynes train station on the day to make transfer to the University site easier. The following day (21st) Cranfield will be hosting a young researchers in WASH conference which may also be of interested to some of our members. More details of both events will be shared shortly- but please get the dates in your diaries.
