The Briefing Note “Mapping EU Support for Sanitation in Africa”, published by the EU Water Initiative (EUWI) Africa Working Group, is based on a full study by WEDC in association with Hydroconseil. The purpose of the study is to obtain an overview of the status of the involvement of EU Member States and the European Commission in sanitation-related activities in Africa. It is anticipated that the findings of this work will have the potential to be used for both arguing for greater priority for sanitation within the international architecture and also for individual donors to use in discussing their own Official Development Assistance (ODA).

It now reads like this: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stunted_growth#Causes Causes Most stunting happens during the 1,000-day period that spans from conception to a child's second […]
- Re: When is SuSanA going to move to open access for its publications? - by: joeturner February 27, 2015FWIW, I think there is a problem with trying to change copyright licences in retrospect. If this was to change, I'd have thought the simplest thing is to keep the existing files (albeit whilst noting this is imperfect) and to change the parameters for any future publications. Also (I think) that if one issues a pdf under CC-BY, users can extract images […]
- Re: When is SuSanA going to move to open access for its publications? - by: muench February 27, 2015Hi Marijn, Good point, although I think the general reader never really reads the fine print about copyright anyway. And those looking for a copyright statement (because they want to move the stuff to Wikipedia) know exactly what the accronyms mean. What we could do is to put a hyperlink behind the CC-BY which could e.g. go to this page (like in the example […]
