SuSanA MENA Chapter - Call for Projects

The Sustainable Sanitation Alliance (SuSanA) is inviting applications for the Sustainable Sanitation Project Prize for the MENA region.

The sanitation sector in the MENA region is facing increasing challenges. Not only in infrastructure missing in most rural areas and some of urban areas in MENA countries, but sanitation challenges are aggravated due to increasing water consumption, weak institutional coordination, rapid population growth, refugee crisis and a lack of understanding in how to implement sustainable projects. Within this context, the Regional Chapter MENA was established by SuSanA in 2017, aiming at advancing sustainable sanitation through knowledge transfer, expert exchange, network support and overall capacity building.

In order to engage, network with, support and promote actors who are successfully working in the field of sustainable sanitation through their work, SuSanA is now calling for sanitation projects in the MENA region. We are looking forward to receiving your strong project examples that can serve as important learning cases and upscaling models throughout the region. Those will be presented on the Webportal of the worldwide active SuSanA network, enabling promoting and networking – within the MENA region and beyond. Sanitation projects can be from all fields of the sector and may be focused on innovations in infrastructure, demonstration, pilot, capacity building or information, awareness and dissemination.

Applicants shall be willing to share information about the project as well as their learning experience and indication on the project’s impact on the community. SuSanA is looking for individuals and/or organizations, who are motivated to get engaged in the SuSanA community, it’s activities and a joint promotion of sustainable sanitation in the MENA region.

The competition begins on June 1, 2017. The deadline for applications is July 2, 2017, 11.59pm UTC. Completed application forms should be sent to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

The Sustainable Sanitation Project Prize will be awarded to two winners, who will be funded to present their project idea in context of the Stockholm World Water Week 2017 in August in Sweden, a unique opportunity to network with the SuSanA community, international expert groups and gain publicity for their work.
