SuSanA Meeting

Tuesday, 23 May 2023
12:00 — 13:30
Kleiner Saal
Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ)

Since its launch in 2007, the Sustainable Sanitation Alliance (SuSanA) has grown to become one of the largest and most established sanitation networks, with 15,000 members and 400 partner organisations. SuSanA’s mission is to inform, educate and inspire sector professionals, policymakers, researchers, and other agents of change to achieve sustainable sanitation for all.

Although SuSanA has become a household name in the academic, research and NGO worlds (which make up the majority of its membership base), the network has not managed to break through to water and sanitation operators and utilities. What could be the reason for this? Is SuSanA an appropriate platform for operators? What can we do to make the SuSanA more relevant to technicians, operators, and utilities staff? These are some of the questions we will try to answer together during an interactive lunch meeting at the WOPs Congress in Bonn.

Join us on Tuesday 23rd from 12:00 to 13:30 to get to know SuSanA and discuss solutions for better cooperation between SuSanA and water and sanitation operators
