MENA Chapter

Welcome to the SuSanA Regional Chapter Middle East and North Africa (MENA).

Severe water shortages and mismanagement, ongoing conflicts and devastating humanitarian crises are affecting the region. The sanitation sector is highly challenged. Knowledge transfer and building regional capacities is critical to ensuring a safe future for all.

By establishing a Regional Chapter MENA, SuSanA opens its knowledge pool and makes content relevant and adapted to the MENA context accessible for the Arabic and French speaking communities, for both professionals and students looking to advance sustainable sanitation in the region.

The SuSanA Regional Chapter MENA team warmly invites contribution to the different functionalities of the chapter, including relevant publications in Arabic, open source training materials, topics for discussion on the SuSanA forum, past and ongoing project descriptions and new regional partnerships.

For contributions please contact the SuSanA Secretariat at and for the newly established Mailing List please register here:
