Nowadays podcasts have emerged as a popular form for knowledge sharing and public advocacy in the WASH (Water, Sanitation and Hygiene) sector. Podcasts are produced by WASH professionals including researchers, public officer, civil society covering a wide range of facets of WASH. Through those podcasts different perspectives and voices are brought to the roundtable from both the practitioners on the ground and also the decision-making group. Meanwhile it provides a more handy format to learn and circulate the knowledge among the general public.

Papers to Practice
Laura Kohler & Dorothee Spuhler
This podcast has worked in tandem with SuSanA, and we're proud that the series runners are integral members of our community. The series takes important sanitation-related publications and break them down in 45 minute snapshots, making them more accessible to busy professionals working to deliver inclusive, safely managed sanitation services globally. Laura and Dorothee sit down with the authors and ask them who should know about the paper, and what are the key points to be able to put these papers to practice. This series is co-hosted by CAWST & EAWAG to improve knowledge translation in the sanitation sector.
