Re: Update of Factsheet 2

Dear All,

Jamie Bartram sent the e-mail below concerning the Factsheet for Working Group 2. I am now posting it here with his permission. I look forward to your feedback.

Doreen,

I think it reads well.

A Factsheet does not always benefit from exhaustive referencing. While it could be added (and many would argue it should be) an alternative would be to add outline annotations for the reference citations themselves (to guide to reader as to what they contain) – maybe 3 – 5 lines of text on each?
On content I thought the capex-opex limited perspective seemed a bit limited and at least wider mention (management costs, externalized (‘donor/hidden’) costs and maybe even cost of financing (money) should be mentioned.

Comments on Factsheet of Working Group 2

Dear Working Group 2 members,

As you may know, the Secretariat of the Sustainable Sanitation Alliance is currently in the process of finalising a factsheet book. We are preparing a factsheet book that will comprise of 13 thematic factsheets. We would therefore like to invite you to discuss and give further input to Factsheet 2. We would be delighted if we could receive further input for the factsheet as soon as possible so that we could have a final version and print the book. We would like to print the book end October, early November.

A couple of new things have been going on with the factsheet. Jonathan Parkinson the working group lead has contributed to the factsheet. He has made substantial changes that have made the factsheet better structured and much easier to understand. Thank you Jonathan for your input!

Some of the comments left include referencing or the lack of it in some sections. Unfortunately the first reference that comes up in the factsheet is on page 5. More references should be included. Please feel free to provide additional references for this factsheet. In addition, there is a sentence on page 6 (it is highlighted in the factsheet attached)that is quite difficult to understand. Please can it be simplified?

Attached you will find the document. Please use the document attached when providing your input.

I look very much forward to your feedback! It would be preferable if you could upload your comments and input here in the discussion forum. That way, more members can contribute and discuss any open questions left before finalising. However, If you would like to send me your feedback directly, please email to: This email address is being protected from spambots.

Thanks in advance and best regards
