Many Hands: Harmonising Capacity, Knowledge and Documentation in Sanitation and Hygiene

A meeting of key representatives from the water, sanitation and hygiene sector produced a series of commitments to improve coordination for more effective results in for the sector by cementing a consensus on goals and actions needed in the sector. Organised by WSSCC, the November 2013 meeting brought together key partners from the sector, including Plan International, WaterAid and UNICEF, among others. Results of the day’s meeting are laid out in this new report, &;Many Hands: Harmonising Capacity, Knowledge and Documentation in Sanitation and Hygiene&;. Participants at the meeting considered what water, sanitation and hygiene, or WASH-related capacity building remains to be achieved in the dynamic environments of Asia and Africa. They also looked at what documentation, learning and knowledge systems are required to achieve this goal, agreeing on a number of steps for moving forward.  The resource can be found at:
