SuSanA webinar monthly webinar 1: “Opportunities & challenges of achieving WASH behaviour change”

Published on Apr 28, 2016

The webinar brought together speakers who presented their perspectives on how we can improve WASH behavior change. First, we learnt about how we can do a better job of leveraging the influence of community leaders to change some of the social and cultural norms that prevent uptake of healthy WASH behaviors. The role of both formal and informal leaders was explored, as well as how to extend this collaboration beyond CLTS to incorporate it more into other WASH approaches.

Webinar on ‘What constitutes success for CLTS? – Measuring community outcomes and behavior change’ – Wed 22 July

It is startling that there seems to be no consensus about what constitutes success for CLTS programmes. Is 30% an acceptable success rate? How can these rates be optimized? What should be our response to communities that do not become defecation free?

An upcoming webinar will ponder these questions. The title of the webinar is: ‘What constitutes success for CLTS? – Measuring community outcomes and behavior change’

It will take place on Wednesday 22 July 2015 at 15:00 London time (BST/GMT+1).

The new Sustainable Development Goals will encourage a stronger focus on behavior all along the sanitation chain. Therefore, we are at the right time to consider what we can do more, better or differently. We invite you to join an interactive webinar where experts working in the “Building Demand for Sanitation Programme” of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation will share their insights.  The panelists of the webinar include:

  • Ada-Oko Williams, Technical Support Manager, Sanitation and Hygiene, WaterAid UK
  • Darren Saywell, Senior Director, Water, Sanitation and Health, Plan International USA (CLTS research project)
  • Hans-Joachim Mosler, Head of Environmental and Health Psychology, Eawag (CLTS research project)
  • Jonny Crocker, Research Assistant at The Water Institute at UNC, Chapel Hill

The webinar will be run as a panel interview followed by audience and panelists interactions. This webinar, open to all, is being organized under the Knowledge Management initiative of the Building Demand for Sanitation (BDS) program, by Euforic Services, the SuSanA secretariat and the Stockholm Environment Institute.
