The synthesis of the thematic discussion series "The Sanitation Ladder: Next Steps" provides a summary and the key points of the first thematic discussion series on the SuSanA Discussion Forum.
The thematic discussion addressed the role of the functional sanitation ladder in the WASH-related post-2015 landscape, where discussions and negotiations are currently taking place to determine the targets and indicators of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for 2015-2030.
The discussion was led by three thematic experts, Patrick Bracken, Elisabeth Kvarnström, and Ricard Gine on the SuSanA Discussion Forum from 9-27 February 2015 with weekly topics of:
Week 1: Evolution and Further Development of the Sanitation Ladder
Week 2: The post-2015 agenda & emerging monitoring challenges in the sanitation sector
Week 3: The way forward…adaptation of the sanitation ladder to the post-2015 period
As the discussion unfolded, several of the key issues were discussed, including: implications of the SDG indicators on a functional sanitation ladder; including equity, human rights and schools and health centres in the framework; defining “safe” sanitation; complementary ideas to a sanitation ladder; and adopting the functional sanitation ladder.
