A global portal for advancing sustainability in WASH

2014 WASH Sustainability Forum

Sustainability has been a key focus throughout the WASH sector for several years; however, many organizations have had trouble translating broad discussions into field programming. Building off of previous forums that focused on the concepts of sustainability, this Forum will introduce practical approaches and tools for applying sanitation, hygiene, and water sustainability principles.

Recognizing that attention has been placed primarily on water access in past discussions, this meeting will have a special focus on sanitation and hygiene, while still advancing sustainability for water.

The fifth in the series of WASH Sustainability Forums will be held on June 30th & July 1st at the RAI in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Organized as a mix of hands-on sessions, engaging small group discussions, and impactful plenary presentations, this Forum will expose participants to practical tools and approaches that can be applied within the context of their own work.
