Sustainable WASH Forum Report 2011

Date: January 14, 2011

As a follow-up to the first WASH Sustainability Forum, held in October 2010, the second WASH Sustainability Forum was held at The World Bank headquarters in Washington, D.C. on January 14, 2011. This day-long workshop brought together over 90 participants from more than 50 organizations. Attendees represented a broad range of sector stakeholders including donors (e.g. governments, corporations, and foundations), implementers (both from the NGO and commercial sectors), advocacy organizations, multilateral organizations, and universities. The forum was hosted by Aguaconsult alongside Global Water Challenge (GWC), IRC, Water For People, and the Water and Sanitation Program (WSP).The Forum sought to showcase the need for greater sustainability in WASH activities and provide participants with the information, guidance, and a network to increase the sustainability of their programming. In order to achieve this goal, participants were exposed to a range of ideas, approaches, programs, organizations, and best practices through a series of panel presentations and small-group exercises. The forum was organized into three main sections. The first, discussed solutions, trends and best practices within the WASH sector from the donor perspective. The second, discussed practical sustainable applications from the implementing partner perspective. And the third and final section discussed sustainable WASH business models.This report highlights the activities and lessons learned throughout the 2011 WASH Sustainability Forum. It provides an introduction to each of the panel presentations and two breakout sessions as well as insights from some participants. The first breakout session focused on identifying a common definition, mission, or vision for WASH sustainability, and the second on brainstorming key principles in service of this mission. Together, these sessions will contributed to the development of a WASH Sustainability Charter. The report concludes by discussing the required next steps to improve sustainability.
