Our main aim with these webinars is to have interesting discussions: this is not a one-way street but an exchange in both directions (and even amongst the audience by using the chat function). Try it out if you haven’t been to one of our webinars yet, they are really good fun and inspiring.

The webinars are based on discussions of the projects on the SuSanA Discussion Forum where Sanitation experts and enthusiasts around the world are openly discussing the outcomes and progress of the Gates Foundation’s sanitation science and technology grants since January 2013.

The SuSanA Discussion Forum is hosted by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) and has seen an increase in activity since the grant holders were invited to contribute. So far 68 grantees and their colleagues have presented their projects and results on the SuSanA discussion Forum and engaged in discussions with the sanitation community.
