2014 WASH Sustainability Forum

Thank you to all who made the 2014 WASH Sustainability Forum such a success!

Sustainability has been a key focus throughout the WASH sector for several years; however, many organizations have had trouble translating broad discussions into field programming. Building off of previous forums that focused on the concepts of sustainability, this Forum introduced practical approaches and tools for applying sanitation, hygiene, and water sustainability principles.

The fifth in the series of WASH Sustainability Forums was held on June 30th & July 1st at the RAI in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Organized as a mix of hands-on sessions, engaging small group discussions, and impactful plenary presentations, the Forum exposed participants to practical tools and approaches that can be applied within the context of their own work.
