In 2011, WHO and UNICEF, as part of the Joint Monitoring Programme (JMP), initiated a broad technical consultation to identify potential targets and indicators for water, sanitation and hygiene post-2015. This culminated in a meeting in The Hague in December 2012 where we achieved broad consensus on a list of targets and indicators as well as a few actions going forwards. Since then, a number of things have happened to take forward the outcomes of the Hague meeting and the process that led up to it. One highlight was the establishment of the Working Group on Communications and Advocacy. This working group is led by Amanda Marlin at the Water Supply and Sanitation Collaborative Council (WSSCC) and includes the leads from the four previously established working groups (water supply, sanitation, hygiene and equity and non-discrimination). This ensures that the work of the communications working group is informed by the JMP-facilitated process. A set of communications materials has been produced by this working group – fact sheets and powerpoint presentations in English, French and Spanish. This was following specific advice provided at the Hague consultation and the meeting of the Strategic Advisory Group, both in December 2012.
