Re: Kampala WASH Symposium with integrated 21st SuSanA Meeting - in Kampala, Uganda, 20-23 June 2016 + WG meetings

Dear Secretariat,

I am wondering of it is possible to get some sort of confirmation for participating in the Kampala WASH symposium.
The website says:

Please note that completion of this form does not guarantee you a spot at the Kampala WASH Symposium. Organizers will be in touch with next steps for confirming participation.


I am trying to get funding for my travel but it is difficult without any kind of formal letter from the symposium organizers and that quote from the website doesn't make it any easier. Could you please advise how I can go about this? And if it is possible to get some form of confirmation for registered participants or a letter/email soon?

Regards,
Daniel

Dear Daniel,

Re: Brainstorming the Kampala WASH Symposium

Hi Anne,

According to Population Estimates and Projections in Sub-Sahara Africa and Asia are 1.4 billion and 4.3 billion respectively by 2030. That will be 67% of the total world’s population of about 8.5 billion. Although Devex reports that extreme poverty is expected to drop by 4.9 percent, UN estimates that by 2030 nearly half the global population could be facing water scarcity. Demand could outstrip supply by 40 percent.

WHO, JMP 2015 reports are that today, almost 2.5 billion do not have access to adequate sanitation. ......At current rates of reduction, open defecation will not be eliminated among the poorest in rural areas by 2030.

Hygiene - There was no specific target on hygiene in the MDGS, however its health benefits are significant and linked to adequate water and sanitation. The JMP covers hygiene practices in its data gathering. Data from over 50 countries show low levels of handwashing in many countries. In sub-Saharan Africa, in the 38 countries for which data are available, it is at best 50%.

These reports are not at all encouraging. I would like to hear from the experts in the Symposium what planning, investment in people, social support and policies are being put in place by governments and agencies to manage these challenges by the 2030 when the SDG number 6 which aims to ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all is supposed to be realized.

Kind regards / Mwaniki

Re: Reply: Brainstorming the Kampala WASH Symposium

Dear Organisers of the Kampala WASH Symposium
Warm greetings

I would like the following during the Symposium:

- 1) A good discussion on different approaches and their implementation process for behaviour change and sustainability of WASH services

- 2) I want to learn from experiences and results on integration WASH Nutrition from strategy, to institutional arrangement and resources

- 3) My thoughts on the topic of the Symposium "From Projects to Services: WASH Sustainability through Whole Systems Approaches" is that from discussions we will (1) try to fill the gap from policy to practice, (2) discuss on what makes better results and (3) get facts to inform WASH projects' implementation for sustainable services.

I thank you very much for the efforts to make the Symposium a "Unique occasion" for passionate Key WASH Actors and wish you all the best

My Best regards

Re: Reply: Brainstorming the Kampala WASH Symposium

Dear Annkathrin,

I am very glad to share my thoughts and expectations during the Kampala WASH Symposium!


1) What are your expectations and hopes to come out of the Symposium?



-New positive ways of thinking:

Over the past decade the emphasis has shifted from simply providing access to WASH facilities for most of society to ensuring equity and inclusiveness (WASH for everyone) and sustainability (WASH all the time, always). There has been increased integration between water, sanitation, hygiene and health actors and activities, and increased attention on social processes, governance arrangements and the ways in which behaviors change, to help ensure progress is sustained;


2) What do you want to learn?



- On how to plan and to sustain WASH services - considering factors such as climate change, population growth, change in land use, urbanization and changing lifestyles
coordinating government, community and private sector roles; strategies for basin-wide cooperation such as water stewardship in WASH and emergency WASH.


3) What are your thoughts on the topic of the Symposium "From Projects to Services: WASH Sustainability through Whole Systems Approaches"


The proposed topic of the Kampala WASH Symposium goes in line with the Sustainable Development Goal 6 pointing out the objective to “ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all”.



Kind regards
Ledoux

Re: SFD Workshop at Kampala WASH Symposium

Dear SusanA members,
The SFD Promotion Initiative, along with SusanA Working Group 6 - Cities, is hosting a side event ‘Go with the flow: A workshop on Shit Flow Diagrams’ at the Kampala WASH Symposium 2016, held on 23 June 2016 at the The Speke Resort Munyonyo, Kampala. See attached Symposium programme for details.

The workshop will focus on providing the participants with an understanding of how SFDs can be developed and used in a city-wide context. The information gained can be used to adopt SFDs to their own context and use the diagram to identify challenges and opportunities with regards to sanitation improvements in their respective cities.
In case you need more information on the workshop, please send me a message.

Best regards,
Susanne

Re: Brainstorming the Kampala WASH Symposium

Dear Mwaniki, Amans and Wamba André,

thank you so much for sharing your thoughts and expectations on the Kamapala WASH Symposium.
You are addressing interesting and important points which we will endeavor to address throughout the agenda.

On Wednesday morning we will have three interesting case studies of whole system change, what they have achieved and what they have done. That will be a good chance to look how they have dealt with important context factors like climate change, population growth, change in land use, urbanization and changing lifestyles in the context of sustainable system change.

As it was correctly said, the proposed topic of the Kampala WASH Symposium goes in line with the Sustainable Development Goal 6 pointing out the objective to “ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all”. We are much looking forward to engage with you in these important discussions on how to engage with the whole system to ensure the sustainability of services.

Please also note the side event related to the implementation of the SDG 6 (taking place on Thursday 23 June):

SDGs: Turning the Vision into Reality
Led by UWASNET
It is nearly a year since the adoption of the SDGs. In Uganda, stakeholders
were identified, roles and responsibilities allocated. What has been
achieved? What are the challenges? Where are the solutions? The side event
seeks to answer these questions, inspire more so that no one is left behind.
(more information on side events can be found here: https://uploads.strikinglycdn.com/files/870950f3-9238-486d-a7b5-372470f56516/Side%20Events.pdf )


We are happy to hear further thoughts!

Kind regards,

Raphaela (on behalf of the SuSanA Secretariat)
