This project database was formerly dedicated to research projects but has now been widened in scope to encompass all sanitation projects - be it research, awareness raising, market development, upscaling, pilot demonstrations etc. The new database of projects on the SuSanA platform allows you to find information for sanitation projects worldwide.
This project database may contain sanitation projects of SuSanA partners as well as those sanitation projects which are supported by organisations which support SuSanA.
From early 2015 onwards, SuSanA partners will have the opportunity to add details about their projects into this database on their own. At this stage, the database only contains projects that are supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation but this will change soon.
An entry in this database does not mean that SuSanA is endorsing or promoting this particular project. It is merely a service for anyone looking for information on projects in the field of sustainable sanitation.
You have the following filter, search and sorting functions in the project database:
- You can filter the projects by thematic category and region using the green filter box displayed at the top right of the project database page.
- You can search for a keyword in the project title or the organisations carrying out the projects by using the search field (note this is only a simple search, not a smart search like the algorithm in Google).
- You can order the projects by starting year, project title or organisation name.
- In future, you will be able to also filter by country and project donor (these two functions are not yet implemented).
- In future we will also adapt the thematic categories of the filter to match better the types of projects included in the database.
Additional information about the projects supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation:
The Foundation embraces a Global Access Policy as described in all grant agreements and contracts that they make. The list of awarded grants is updated regularly on the Foundation's website, and you can sort it to find the grants in their Water, Sanitation & Hygiene portfolio. The grantees are encouraged to share their project materials on the SuSanA platform (forum and library). More information on this arrangement which began in late 2012 and is carried out by Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI) is available here.
Some example outputs to help with the knowledge management of these sanitation grants:
- Reports from the grants, as well as other consultancy reports for the BMGF are available in the SuSanA library here.
- The conditions describing the RTTC and GCE grants as set out in 2011 and 2012 are available here.
- The SEI project team organised seven webinars since 2013, during which a total of 20 grantees presented their research projects so far.
- At the Reinvent the Toilet Fair in Delhi, India, in March 2014, the SEI project team filmed interviews and tours of exhibits of 17 sanitation research projects.
