The Sanitation and Water for All (SWA) global partnership is holding the 2017 edition of its High-level Meetings (HLM) on 19-20 April in Washington DC, USA. These meetings offer unique opportunities to make significant progress towards cross-sector collaboration and achieving access to safe, reliable, and affordable water and sanitation for all. Simavi’s Programme Director, Ewout van Galen, will attend these High-level Meetings to share Civil Society Common Messages and represent the European Civil Society.
During the SWA High-level Meetings in Washington D.C., Simavi spoke to Samson Shivaji, CEO of KEWASNET and Steering Committee member on behalf of the African CSOs. We were curious to hear his expectations and hopes for the future of WASH.
From 13-24 March, Simavi was among the many thousand attendees of the 61st session of the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) in New York. The conclusions which came out of this platform can be used by civil society actors to hold their governments’ accountable to achieve gender equality and women’s empowerment.
Our goal is to structurally improve the basic health of 10 million people by 2020.
Over this time we’ve built up an in-depth knowledge of what - and who - it takes to successfully implement WASH and SRHR programmes and how to keep producing positive and sustainable results.Meet us here
