In working to address SDG6 there is increasing need to understand the different barriers to gaining governments commitment to sanitation and ensuring investment of resources to achieve targets. While it is clear that access to water and sanitation is a human right stating this is not enough to get the commitment from governments, especially in areas where funds are limited and there are competing priorities. By understanding government officials position, drivers and challenges it is possible to better engage and influence government and increase uptake in prioritising sanitation services.
SuSanA will be facilitating a panel discussion between the World Toilet Organisation (WTO), WaterAid, and BRAC to understand what has worked for these three organisations in influencing government to prioritise sanitation and to address questions from SuSanA members along this topic.
Further Description / Program
The panel discussion will take place on 17th May at 1400 GMT. SuSanA members are invited to post their questions to the panel here: http://forum.susana.org/146-webinars-and-online-meetings/21379-panel-discussion-on-influencing-and-engaging-government-in-sanitation-1400-gmt-17-may-2017#21417
