Sanitation for Millions (S4M) programme funded by German Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF) aims at improving sustainable access to sanitation and the hygiene situation among impoverished and vulnerable populations on a global level. Currently being implemented in Jordan, Pakistan and Uganda, S4M aims at gathering experience and best practices for upscaling und dissemination.

Ensuring sustainable operation and maintenance (O&M) of sanitary facilities in public institutions is one of the core focuses of the S4M programme and poses a serious /difficult challenge until date. For instance increasing vandalism affects the maintenance of sanitary facilities in schools for boys. Sustainable O&M requires planning and budgeting to carry out the necessary tasks. Decisions on who should fund sanitation O&M for public institutions and how, receives far less attention than design and construction activities.

Join us for a webinar on June 7, 2018 at 13:00 hrs (Central European Summer Time/ Berlin Time) with S4M experts in Uganda, Pakistan and Jordan. They will share their experiences with the challenge of sourcing and allocating financial resources to O&M procedures along the whole sanitation chain.

Presenters:
Christian Rieck, GIZ Uganda
Bjoern Lobo Zimprich, GIZ Jordan
Hashim Khan, GIZ Pakistan
