Civil society messages for SWA partnership meeting

In November 2012, a small group of about 15 civil society representatives including ten members from ANEW and FANSA as well as a handful of northern country representatives will be representing the voice of civil society at a Sanitation and Water for All Partnership meeting.

 

Discussions at the meeting will focus on five themes, Political Dialogue (including High Level Meeting Options), SWA Framework, Country Processes and Global Monitoring. There are five background papers which can be downloaded here:

The remaining two will be posted soon.

 

The four key civil society messages which have been developed can be summarised as:

  1. Focus on adding value at country level
  2. Improve mutual accountability of SWA partners
  3. Raise the profile of SWA (specifically at regional & national levels)
  4. Sustain a coordinated CSO voice in the Partnership
