Hi, I am a new member of the SuSanA secretariat, Alexandra Dubois

Hello everyone

My name is Alexandra Dubois, I joined the SuSanA secretariat few days ago and I am based in Bonn. I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself to the community as we will be working closely together.

I have been working for GIZ as technical advisor for several years, mainly in the Sub-Saharan region. With a background in natural sciences and environmental engineering, I have specialized in WASH with a specific focus on hygiene practices and scalable decentralised sanitation concepts.

I have a strong attachment to SuSanA, as it was this platform that sparked my interest in the WASH sector. I joined the network immediately after a presentation of SuSanA that I attended during my studies. Since then, I can't count how many times SuSanA has been useful to me, be it through its library, its forum or even the contacts created from the network. Through my new role in the secretariat, I hope to contribute to the smooth running and further development of the platform and perhaps in turn to awaken the interest of new people for Sanitation :)

I am looking forward to working together and getting to know as many of you as possible.

Best regards and greetings from Bonn 
Alexandra

Hi Alexandra,

We have officially met virtually since this introductory post. However, allow me to express here as well how thrilled the SuSanA Moderators and the larger community are to have you on board. 

You mention in your post your work in Sub-saharan Africa. Do you mind sharing a bit more detail about which countries you have worked in and your areas of focus there? I believe you have unique credentials within the secretariat as you have worked 'on the ground' and that offers the relevant practical insights for Knowledge Management needs particularly for this forum.

What is your view on the current sector knowledge Management approaches (if at all they exist) within the Sub-saharan setting you have worked?

Regards,
Chaiwe
