The Sustainable Sanitation Alliance (SuSanA) is excited to announce the 11th Thematic Online Discussion on the topic of “Integrating sectors to address the holistic needs of children – how and when to integrate?”
Running for three weeks from Tuesday 4 October to Thursday 27 October, the BabyWASH Coalition is moderating a discussion looking at a number of key issues relating to integration between water, sanitation and hygiene; nutrition; early childhood development; and maternal newborn and child health during the first 1,000 days of life.
Join the discussion to post your questions, debate with lead experts in the field, and provide your insights and knowledge on the following issues:
• Theme I – Examples of Successful Integration: What examples of success for integration has your organization had in programming? Please provide results and/or case studies from these examples. What failures have you encountered or ways that you see integration can be detrimental? (Beginning 4 October)
• Theme 2 – Tools for Integration: What tools already exist to help organizations integrate across the sectors? Post links to the sources in this thread so we can start to build a comprehensive library of all current tools and guidance that we can link to after the discussion. (Beginning 12 October)
• Theme 3 – Defining the Gaps: What tools and/or guidance do not already exist that would be helpful to have in order to integrate more fully? This discussion will help the BabyWASH Coalition workstreams define where their first priorities will be. (Beginning 18 October)
We look forward to interested participants and an enriching discussion!
Antonio S.D. on behalf of the Sustainable Sanitation Alliance
