SuSanA special session on Capacity Development Activities

SEI as the lead of the SuSanA Working Group for Capacity Development has the pleasure to invite SuSanA delegates to a special session on 'Capacity Development Activities and Achievements on the African Continent' at the 9th SuSanA meeting at ILRI in Addis Ababa from 15.30-17.30 hrs on 16 May 2009.
 
The International Year of Sanitation 2008 initiated with the AfricaSan Conference in Durban . At this conference it was recognized that more than 60% of the African population do not have access to safe sanitation and that annually 1 million Africans die from sanitation, hygiene and drinking water-related diseases. The delegates at the Conference agreed that a strong action plan would be needed to get the African continent on track to achieve the MDG target of sustainable access to sanitation and the necessity of each African government to set their own goals for both sanitation and hygiene.  32 ministers committed themselves to the eTikwini declaration and action plan. Within the  action plan the need of developing and strengthening capacity for sanitation and hygiene  implementation, including research and development and  the support of knowledge exchange is an imperative.
 
In 2008, many African countries further developed their sanitation action plans and many capacity development activities took place to support the governments in their endeavors.
 
Focus of the session:
“Innovative Capacity Development Activities in Support of the African governments - Efforts to Scale up Sustainable Sanitation and Hygiene Education”.

Working group 5 meeting on 15-16 May 2009

The SuSanA working group 5 on food security and productive sanitation systems is planning for a 2-day working group meeting on May 15/16 in Addis Ababa, prior to the general SuSanA meeting that will be held on May 16/17, 2009 and the WEDC conference (May 18-22, 2009) in Addis Ababa Ethiopia.
During the last working group meeting in Stockholm (August 2008), the group jointly agreed to update and revise the 2004 SEI EcoSanRes document: 'Guidelines on the use of urine and faeces in crop production' and develop 2 separate documents for the use of urine and for the use of faeces in crop production. In addition to both more generic guides it was furthermore discussed to add a chapter with a detailed criteria list that can be used for the development of individual, locally adapted guidelines.
Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI) together with Xavier University (Philippines) committed themselves to lead and coordinate the entire development process of both documents and a first draft outline for both documents was already developed and circulated earlier this year. It is envisaged to elaborate both documents until the next SuSanA meeting in Stockholm (August 2009) in order to present it to the entire SuSanA network for final feedback and approval and the final launching of both documents is foreseen for the 4th quarter of the 2009.
The draft outline for both documents as well as a draft agenda for the meeting is provided in the download section. Any further input or feedback from your side is highly appreciated and can still be incorporated easily. All of you who consider to participate at the said meeting or regardless of their absence would like to be involved in the further development process of the guidelines would like to provide their feedback should do so until the workshop to the contact persons mentioned below.
If you feel that there is a specific part where you would like to contribute or if you wish to take responsibility for a whole chapter, or part of a chapter, or if you have any up-to-date information or good examples based on your local experiences, as well as information on existing field/ demonstration trials etc.then kindly let us know as well.

Focus of the meeting:

The development of guidelines for the safe use of urine and faeces in crop production.
