From Jona Toetzke of the Sustainable Sanitation Alliance (SuSanA):

Dear ENN community,

I am part of the Sustainable Sanitation Alliance (SuSanA) and engaged in a thematic discussion that is currently ongoing at the links below. As the SuSanA community mainly comprises of people from the WASH sector, for a cross-cutting issue like WASH & Nutrition, it is mostly fruitful to also consider views from nutritionists.

I would therefore like to invite you to take part and share your experiences and perspectives about if and how best to integrate those two sectors.

Especially in terms of integrated policy making, the WASH sector could learn from the nutrition framework of SUN countries. What are recommendations from you for the WASH community? What are possible incentives to better link the sector policies?

Thanks a lot for your feedback!


Please join the discussion through the SuSanA links above. We can then report back a summary of the discussion on en-net.

Hi Jona,

I think there are some good examples of this in country. For example in Ethiopia at a local woreda level multisectoral platforms are being created in some places for all sectors to come together and plan interventions strategically. This includes ensuring a strong link between WASH and nutrition through bcc and provision of clean water. Happy to catch up on this in due course but strong collaboration and clear reporting indicators are two areas I think are critical to this working.
