Reaching the unreached in South Asia with sanitation [video]

New video launched by the Water Supply and Sanitation Collaborative Council (WSSCC) during SACOSAN V in Nepal.

Including examples from Nepal, India and Pakistan, the video points to the Colombo Declaration through which governments from the region have committed themselves to improving access to sanitation and hygiene

WSSCC commissioned the video as part of an associated five-country research study conducted by the Freshwater Action Network South Asia (FANSA).


CSOs plan SACOSAN III follow-up meeting in November 2009 in Sri Lanka

Civil society organisations (CSOs) will discuss follow-up to the 3rd South Asian Conference on Sanitation (SACOSAN III) in November in Sri Lanka.

The Freshwater Action Network South Asia (FANSA), WaterAid and the Water Supply and Sanitation Collaborative Council (WSSCC) are organising the meeting from 9-11 November 2009 in Sri Lanka, which will be hosting SACOSAN IV in 2010.

The meeting will review progress made on commitments on sanitation since the Dehli declaration. It will look at ensuring more meaningful and inclusive CSO participation in SACOSAN IV by having CSOs participate at the actual conference itself as well as decide on key demands for the Sri Lankan Government.
