Bonn WASH Nutrition Forum

Political Dialogue & Thematic Discussion Forum – Bonn (November 11-12, 2015)

Watch the Live Stream of the Bonn WASH Nutrition Forum on 11th & 12 November 2015 right here!

See the agenda in the window below, for the upcoming timing of the live stream sessions.


High-level experts from the sanitation and nutrition sector gathered together in the headquarter of Germany’s international broadcaster Deutsche Welle, Bonn for the WASH and Nutrition Forum on November 11th and 12th to discuss strategies for integrating WASH and nutrition programming in development and humanitarian contexts.

The main aim of the forum was to bring together the relevant experts from both sectors. During so-called “mirror sessions”, relevant sector professionals in similar positions from both the WASH and Nutrition sector presented their work / perspective. Hearing about the other respective sector, allows for reflection of one’s own work (hence “mirror”) and inspires further discussion with other experts and participants on complementarity and collaboration between the sectors and the identification of joint indicators. Recommendations, next steps, approaches, research, policy and advocacy issues were some of the outcomes of those sessions.

Beyond the mirror session renowned speakers inspired outcome-oriented discussion, hereby helping the participants to a) assess the latest scientific evidence, b) define strategies and operational solutions and c) develop strategies to integrate the nexus into development and humanitarian policies.

Supported by the United Nations Secretary General’s Advisory Board on Water and Sanitation (UNSGAB) via its Chair, Dr. Uschi Eid, the conference was a key contribution to the UN World Toilet Day 2015, which bears the motto “Sanitation and Nutrition”.
