Which issues will sanitation and hygiene practitioners focus on in Asia? This was the question posed to the more than 50 professionals attending the 3rd Asia Regional Sanitation and Hygiene Practitioners Workshop which ends today in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Based on the above “learning cloud”, sludge management appears to be a major concern.
The three-day workshop, organised by BRAC, WaterAid, Water Supply and Sanitation Collaborative Council (WSSCC) and IRC International Water and Sanitation Centre, started on 31 January 2012. It builds on the collective learning and documentation in the 2008 and 2010 workshops and focuses on improving sustainability, equity, monitoring in Water Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH).
Over 23 papers have been submitted and more photo stories and practical lessons are being shared at the workshop. The papers can be accessed at www.irc.nl/page/68058.
