23rd Sanitation Community of Practice (SanCoP) Meeting: "Municipal Capacity Building to Sustain Sanitation Services"
The 23rd meeting of the UK’s Sanitation Community of Practice was held on the 14th of June 2019 at the University of Sheffield. The aim of the event was to discuss the importance and potentials of capacity building as an integral part of sanitation service delivery. Students from the University of Sheffield presented their group work assessing municipal capacity building approaches in Ghana, after which an engaged audience discussed with an expert panel key questions posed by the students. In two afternoon sessions, various case studies of building municipal capacity were presented. Finally, a group exercise was conducted to develop capacity building strategies in relation to the Ghana Sanitation Challenge.
