SanCoP UK

The UK Sanitation Community of Practice (SanCoP) was conceived in the run up to the 2008 International Year of Sanitation in response to a consensus amongst a number of UK institutions to strengthen and develop a vibrant watsan sector in the UK. Since 2008 SanCoP has been convened by WEDC, IWA and BPD through a series of sanitation workshops. From 2014, SanCoP will now be convened by WEDC and Atkins.

The aim is to strengthen the UK sanitation sector and provide a forum for learning and debate. More specifically SanCoP aims to:

  • Share evidence-based knowledge and experience
  • Encourage the participation of younger professionals
  • Stimulate innovation and learning in science, practice learning and exchange of experiences
  • Provide an opportunity for networking, inter-generational learning and mentoring
  • Encourage multi-disciplinary and multi-sectoral dialogue

SanCoP events bring together a wide range of professionals with an interest in sanitation from academic and research institutions, NGOs, public and private organisations. Participants’ backgrounds’ include engineering, public health, social and political science, economics and urban development disciplines. SanCoP workshops take place twice a year under Chatham House rules allowing lively debate on topical sanitation issues.
