Freshwater Action Network
– grassroots influencing on water and sanitation

Sanitation and water top the agenda in Washington DC this week

This week is an exciting one for FAN members and others in water and sanitation!

This is the week of the first High Level Meeting of Sanitation and Water for All: A Global Framework for Action, as well as the Annual Spring Meetings of the World Bank – where FAN will continue its dialogue activities (following the 2007 scoping study) with the World Bank Water Anchor.

I will be traveling to Washington DC for all of these events and more and will keep you posted on who I meet and what I learn.

The Sanitation and Water for All High Level Meeting follows a global effort to raise the profile of sanitation and water issues in part with the World’s Longest Toilet Queue, organized by the End Water Poverty Campaign in more than 70 countries.

‘Gordon Brown’ joins the London, UK Queue on World Water Day on behalf of the 2.6 billion people without access to sanitation:
