Yes, the focus was primarily around tools. The deliberations were on tools - usage, good ones, whether more needed etc. There was also a lot of debate on sustainability of services and sustainability checks by donors/implementors.

Re: 2014 Sustainable WaSH Forum (30 June, Amsterdam, the Netherlands)

The first time I heard about this conference was by the post of Sanjay above (thanks, Sanjay).

I am very impressed by the social media outreach work from the conference, I have followed it on twitter (look for this keyword on twitter: #WASH2014) and I feel like I got quite a good glimpse of what was discussed there and who was there (thanks also to their photos:

And I am very impressed how fast they managed to produce a video summary of the event, see here:



I guess the main focus was on tools to measure sustainability and on monitoring.

Looking forward to some feedback of SuSanA members who attended this event? And I also wonder if there is already a sufficiently strong linkage between SuSanA and sustainableWASH.org, which seems to be mainly supported by IRC (sustainablewash.org/ - don't be confused: last time I checked they had a problem with some of their pages being hacked with advertising; it confused the hell out of me initially).

Regards,
Elisabeth

2014 WASH Sustainability Forum

Sustainability has been a key focus throughout the WASH sector for several years; however, many organizations have had trouble translating broad discussions into field programming. Building off of previous forums that focused on the concepts of sustainability, this Forum will introduce practical approaches and tools for applying sanitation, hygiene, and water sustainability principles.

Recognizing that attention has been placed primarily on water access in past discussions, this meeting will have a special focus on sanitation and hygiene, while still advancing sustainability for water.

The fifth in the series of WASH Sustainability Forums will be held on June 30th & July 1st at the RAI in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Organized as a mix of hands-on sessions, engaging small group discussions, and impactful plenary presentations, this Forum will expose participants to practical tools and approaches that can be applied within the context of their own work.
