Re: Brainstorming the Bonn WASH Nutrition Forum

Dear SusAn forum members;
A lot of discussion has been made so far on WASh and Nutrition. I guess the international community and donors are now well aware on the issue and relevance of integrated approach to combat acute and chronic malnutrition.

Though child malnutrition is highly embedded on complex web of socio-economic determinants, the access and availability of the basic nutritious food, water, sanitation and hygiene for the poor and very poor can bring remarkable change on the sector.

The main challenge we have confronted in the actual implementation to combat this global challenge is resources! particularly donors have to move one step ahead on targeting the right geographical area for intervention, integrating key sectoral areas/activities and targeting the real affected beneficiaries (HH's) need commitment across the board.

In the upcoming forum, I expect:
Global consensus among humanitarian actors on the importance of integrated approach (WASH+Nut and FS) for remarkable improvement to combat global malnutrition in low income countries
I also expect through discussion among forum attendants and presenters on the importance of 'ACCESS to Nutritious Food and WASH facilities for the most vulnerable'> it is my wish to see rigorous discussion on the issues/definitions and standards to of ACCESS to VULNERABLE HH's

Moreover; I am keen to see debate on rural to urban population migration due to various attractions and repulsion factors and its impact on urban child malnutrition.poverty and Birth spacing hast to be the main debating agenda for the forum.

i wish all a fruitful forum with tangible outcomes.

Re: Brainstorming the Bonn WASH Nutrition Forum

Dear Forum Members.
This forum intends to bring together different people with WASH Nutrition information exchange that can be compiled and shared within and outside communities that are highly vulnerable to WASH Nutrition as my hope and expectations. The discussion topics must hail from the previous WASH Nutrition short comes and local possible approach. We need new innovation approaches on clean water for children in school, proper Nutrition hygiene/food handling of pregnant mothers, proper waste disposal within communities especially in disfranchised communities that hold big number of low income earners and many others. If all the above is considered many of us can benefit and create a difference among ourselves as developing countries.

Thanks for the platform.

Bonn WASH Nutrition Forum, 11th & 12th November - feedback and recordings from livestream now available

Dear SuSanA members,

Recurring diarrhoea and intestinal worm infections caused by unsafe water, inadequate sanitation or insufficient hygiene reduce the ability of the human body to absorb nutrients and thus account for about half of global malnutrition. Children are the most affected, and developmental disorders like child stunting and wasting are some of the tragic and preventable consequences. Without preventing the infections and diseases, food is literally being wasted and flushed 'into the toilet'.

On the 11th & 12th November 2015, the WASH & Nutrition Forum is taking place in Bonn, Germany. Organised by the German WASH network and chaired by Dr. Uschi Eid (Chair of the United Nations Secretary General Adisory Board on Water and Sanitation, UNSGAB), participants will share experiences on the nexus of nutrition, water, sanitation and hygiene for developing ideas and bringing up this important linkage on the agenda within the sectors and beyond.

Amongst the confirmed speakers are Catarina de Albuquerque (Executive Chair, Sanitation and Water for All Partnership), Laurence Haddad (IFPRI Senior Research Fellow - Poverty, Health & Nutrition Division), Peter Mahal (SWA Country Focal Point, Ministry of Water Resources and Irrigation, South Sudan) and other international representatives, covering perspectives from policy, strategy and advocacy to operation and implementation and brining research and scientific evidence.

Due to limited seats, you will need to pre-register here before 25th October. Further information and a list of speakers is available on the SuSanA Homepage , the German WASH Network Homepage and in the attachment.

Looking forward to seeing you in Bonn!
