Anniversary Celebration Group Picture, Eschborn, 2017

 On Tuesday the 17th of January 2017, the Sustainable Sanitation Alliance (SuSanA) celebrated its 10th anniversary in Eschborn, Germany where SuSanA was founded in 2007 by a range of actors who were actively involved in the sanitation sector. This year’s anniversary celebration took place under the theme "10 years SuSanA: How the changed sanitation paradigm contributes to the Sustainable Development Goals". During the celebration, SuSanA’s achievements, milestones and impact in the sanitation sector were reflected upon. SuSanA’s way forward was paved and the alliance’s contribution to the 2030 Agenda for sustainable development was discussed. Moreover, a final draft of the SuSanA’s vision ‘SuSanA Vision 2030: Contribution to Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development” was presented to the public for the first time. This document contains views on the shift from the MDGs to the SDGs, continuing challenges and new opportunities for SuSanA, Sanitation interlinkages across the SDGs and SuSanA’s objectives and goals. The Vision document is now available under Contribution of sustainable sanitation to the Agenda 2030. Present at the celebration and contributing to the various discussions were several SuSanA members as well as representatives of SuSanA’s partner and donor organisations like BMZ, SDC, former UNSGAB, UN-Habitat, World Bank – WSP, Eawag, SEI, BORDA, German WASH Network and many more.
