In 2010, over 40 organizations gathered at the first Sustainability Forum to discuss sustainable water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) services at scale. The following year, nearly 100 stakeholders from over 50 organizations came together to develop a common set of sustainability principles, which became the WASH Sustainability Charter. The momentum continued to build with new sustainability initiatives, learning forums, webinars, and presentations at global conferences. Sustainability has become a common topic as organizational practices and programmatic work shift from individual projects to sustainable services.
In early 2012, individuals from a consortium of organizations (Aguaconsult, Global Water Challenge, IRC and WASH Advocates) came together to build on previous work around sustainability and create SustainableWASH.org as a dynamic hub for the sustainability conversation.
These individuals include:
Elynn Walter, WASH Advocates, Elynn.Walter@SustainableWASH.org
Harold Lockwood, IRC/Aguaconsult, Harold.Lockwood@SustainableWASH.org
Brian Banks, Global Water Challenge, Brian.Banks@SustainableWASH.org
