None of the countries in Eastern Africa is on track in regard to sanitation millennium development goals (MDGs). However, governments in the respective countries have demonstrated substantial political will as witnessed by signing of eThekwini and Sharm el Sheikh Declarations. It was against this backdrop that the second Eastern Africa conference was held. The conference brought together policy makers and practitioners from 10 countries in Eastern Africa. In several aspects the conference has evolved given the scope of civil society participation, and the high level government representation in the second conference. In addition, this year’s conference adopted a peer review mechanism, through which a two level peer review process was carried out, commencing with a review of National Sanitation Plans by a team of sector practitioners before the conference and later during the conference, a panel of experts listened to the country present their sanitation plans and provided valuable feed back.
