Join the e-debate: Are the JMP Post-2015 indicators on WASH in Schools a step in the right direction?
Updated - Thursday 06 September 2012
Do you want to influence the global Post-2015 WASH agenda? Do you want to ensure that WASH in Schools gets the prominence it deserves? If you do, then join the e-debate on the JMP Post-2015 indicators for WASH in schools. The results will serve as an input for the public consultation of the JMP Post-2015 Working Groups, which ends on September 20, 2012.
The e-debate starts 3 September and is this first in a series of three on WASH in Schools scheduled for the coming months. The topics are inspired by questions asked during the implementation of the SWASH+ project, an action-research school WASH project in Kenya.

Trigger magazine on Pan-Africa Programme
The Pan-Africa Programme (2010 – 2014) has set the ambitious target to facilitating 805 rural, 36 (peri)- urban communities and 742 schools in reaching the Open Defecation Free (ODF) status by the end of 2014. As a result 2.6 million people in 8 African countries would gain access to sanitation and improve their hygiene practices. This Trigger magazine is meant to inform a wider audience about the development of the Pan-Africa Programme and to share lessons learnt that could be useful in implementing similar CLTS projects.
