The call for tools for sustainability for the WASH Sustainability Forum has been closed.
The Forum organisation will be reaching out to the tool submitters in the second half of the week of 19 May to confirm their tools and begin planning the sessions.
The next sustainable WASH forum will take place at the RAI in Amsterdam, The Netherlands on 30 June and 1 July. This is the fifth in a series of such events which bring together practitioners, policy makers and thought leaders to address challenges around sustainability and to improve the way in which organisations plan and deliver services on the ground. These events provide a neutral forum for learning, reflection and debate with participants from both the south and north.
The growing interest and commitment to these types of events [...] is a positive reflection of how far the sector globally has moved in the last five to six years.
"The growing interest and commitment to these types of events, with a focus on how we can better sustain services far into the future, is a positive reflection of how far the sector globally has moved in the last five to six years", says Harold Lockwood of forum co-organiser Aguaconsult. "The fact that so many organisations and networks are involved also demonstrates that IRC's vision for collective action in the sector is a viable one, even at global level. This event will focus down on practical tools and approaches, with a number of them presented during the two days; we will follow-up with participants to track how these are then applied in future".
This event is organised and supported by the following organizations: Aguaconsult, Global Water Challenge, IRC, Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Netherlands, UNICEF, WASH Advocates, and the Water and Sanitation Program of the World Bank.
