CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS - ACF/ UNICEF/ ECHO WASH in Nutrition Operational Manual

CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS
[/b]

We are looking for successful stories around the world to be included into the upcoming ACF/ UNICEF/ ECHO WASH in Nutrition Operational Manual. We need examples of good practice on:

 Enhancing geographical / programmatic integration of WASH and Nutrition projects by focusing WASH projects in the areas with high undernutrition prevalence
 Targeting and prioritization of “mother / accompanying - malnourished child" dyad from the nutrition centers to home in order to prevent the vicious circle "diarrhea / nematodes / enteropathy - malnutrition" and associated diseases;
 Ensuring and reinforcing the WASH minimum package (kit, messages & standards) both in health & nutrition centers and at the household level in the communities affected by undernutrition
 Placing emphases and investing in behavior change regarding hygiene in the health centers and the community
Enhancing collaboration between WASH experts and nutrition or food security experts
 WASH and Nutrition Advocacy

The “WASH in Nutrition Operational Manual” primarily addresses field practitioners, WASH project managers and other actors involved in the undernutrition prevention mandate. The manual will be simple, illustrated, attractive and focused on presenting “small doable actions”, translated into English and French, available in hard copy and the PDF format for on-screen use.

If you have an example of good practice to share and you would like to be a contributor to “WASH in Nutrition Operational Manual” please send an email to Jovana Dodos This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
We will be collecting your contributions until December 1st 2015!

Re: CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS - ACF/ UNICEF/ ECHO WASH in Nutrition Operational Manual

As you probably already know, we are currently working on development of ACF/ UNICEF/ ECHO WASH & Nutrition operational manual.

This manual primarily addresses field practitioners, WASH project managers and other actors involved in the undernutrition prevention mandate. It will be simple, illustrated, attractive and focused on presenting “small doable actions”, translated into English and French, available in hard copy and the PDF format for on-screen use.

As a part of the project, we are collecting successful stories and examples of good practice from the field regarding the integration of WASH & nutrition activities.

A fact-finding mission to Senegal, scheduled for the first 2 weeks of November, should provide concrete input to the manual coming for African region. In order to avoid having Africa-only focused product, and ensure that this manual will be applicable outside of African continent, we are looking for examples coming from others regions (primarily Asia and Latin America) as well.

If you have an example of good practice to share please write to Jovana Dodos This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Thank you and looking forward to your contributions!

Dear colleagues,

Many thanks for sending your contributions and examples of good practice around the world, you are just great! This is to inform you that we will be collecting your input until 15th of December 2015 so in case you still have something to share on WASH & Nutrition integration, please do so!

Also, I would like to ask you to share with us your experiences regarding challenges and obstacles you faced during the planning/ implementation/ monitoring and evaluation of an integrated WASH & Nutrition project. We believe this is extremely useful to have in an operational manual, so please share!

I am curious to hear from you not only what went well, but also what kind of challenges you faced and how did you overcome them!Please write to Jovana Dodos This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
