Announcing the launch of the Agenda for Change Sanitation Roadmap! - "A district-level roadmap for universal access to sustainable sanitation services"

Dear Colleagues,

I would like to share an important new resource from Agenda for Change: "A district-level roadmap for universal access to sustainable sanitation services," developed in collaboration with Aguaconsult, Helvetas, IRC WASH, WaterAid, and Water For People.

This sanitation roadmap was developed to address a gap in available guidance, tools, and case studies specifically focused on sanitation services. In this document, you will find a description of the scope and main differences between water and sanitation services; a step-by-step process for developing a WASH district roadmap focusing on sanitation service delivery; examples of some Agenda for Change members’ district-wide approaches to sanitation services in 20+ countries; and a list of useful resources for sanitation services.

I invite you to take a read, and please help us to share widely with the SuSanA network!
All best,
Alec
Regards,
Alec

Re: Announcing the launch of the Agenda for Change Sanitation Roadmap! - "A district-level roadmap for universal access to sustainable sanitation services"

Hi Alec,

Thanks for alerting us to this roadmap. I think we haven't had previous posts about the "Agenda for Change" yet ( washagendaforchange.org/ ). Would you like to introduce us to your organisation by telling us a bit more about it?

On your website it says:

Established in May 2015, Agenda for Change is a collaboration of like-minded organizations (“Members”) that have adopted a set of  common principles  and approaches. We work collectively to advocate for, and support national and local governments in, strengthening the water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) systems required to deliver universal, sustained access as outlined under Sustainable Development Goal 6.

This sounds very similar to SuSanA, so I am curious what the similarities and differences are (I guess one difference is that SuSanA focuses more on sanitation and only in a small way on water supply). What was the particular motivation for establishing it in 2015? Also, I am always interested in how things are funded, so my question is: who is funding your work? (see also my recent forum post about funding of the SuSanA discussion forum moderation  here )

Regards,
Elisabeth
