ACF (Action Contre la Faim)

Sanitation (and water) conditions directly affect health and food security and are key components in the fight against Hunger and Malnutrition. For 25 years, in line with its vocation of fighting Hunger, the Action contre la Faim international network has been implementing field programmes aimed at supporting populations in humanitarian situations, along with research and technical development in order to optimise its interventions. The mandate of ACF, since 1979, is dual: - To fight against hunger and undernutrition worldwide especially severe acute under-nutrition, a preventable disease affecting 19 million people and killing 1 million under 5 children every year. - To respond to and be prepared for emergencies, as well as working on mitigation and prevention of disasters’ impact. ACF’s approach to under-nutrition combines the treatment with an integrated preventive approach, based on the UNICEF conceptual framework of undernutrition. The 3 main underlying causes of undernutrition - Food Security & Livelihoods, Care practices and Public and environmental Health - directly or indirectly relate to an inadequate access to water, sanitation and hygiene. ACF approach to disasters is to intervene both at field and global levels, getting actively involved in coordination bodies such as Global Clusters. ACF intervenes from emergency through rehabilitation and up to development, in more than 45 countries, with more than 4600 staff, and support 4.6 million people worldwide including more than 2 million for the WASH sector. Beside the clusters, ACF is member of key networks including End Water Poverty, Partenariat Français de l’Eau, and now SuSanA.

Organised in four business domains (Start-Up Centre, Think-Tank, Training Centre, Business Platform), it aims at strengthening the implementation skills in the sector on an international level in a unique training programme combining advanced education and coaching. The international Start-Up teams will be able to offer solutions based on a good knowledge of regional markets and conditions but also a wider range of contacts to research and development in the North and the South. Each Start-Up is coached by one or several members from the Think-Tank, a core group of international high-level experts from the sector, which bring in their network, expertise and the current state-of-the-art knowledge. The coaches also ensure the strategic and practical orientation of the Start-Ups. The training programme provides the Start-Ups not only with the advanced knowhow for business development and management, but also the advanced knowledge on technical aspects of sustainable sanitation and water management (SSWM), the required practical experiences, support for extending their network, links to research and technology development, as well as first contacts with investors.

CfD sought to lessen the negative impact of poor water and sanitation on people’s health and livelihoods, which it recognized can often be compounded by a lack of awareness amongst the most vulnerable people of Cambodia.

CLTS-Foundation (Community-Led Total Sanitation)

Community Led Total Sanitation (CLTS) is an innovative methodology for mobilising communities to completely eliminate open defecation (OD). Communities are facilitated to conduct their own appraisal and analysis of open defecation (OD) and take their own action to become ODF (open defecation free). At the heart of CLTS lies the recognition that merely providing toilets does not guarantee their use, nor result in improved sanitation and hygiene. Earlier approaches to sanitation prescribed high initial standards and offered subsidies as an incentive. But this often led to uneven adoption, problems with long-term sustainability and only partial use. It also created a culture of dependence on subsidies. Open defecation and the cycle of fecal–oral contamination continued to spread disease. In contrast, CLTS focuses on the behavioural change needed to ensure real and sustainable improvements – investing in community mobilisation instead of hardware, and shifting the focus from toilet construction for individual households to the creation of “open defecation-free” villages. By raising awareness that as long as even a minority continues to defecate in the open everyone is at risk of disease, CLTS triggers the community’s desire for change, propels them into action and encourages innovation, mutual support and appropriate local solutions, thus leading to greater ownership and sustainability.

Financial Inclusion Improves Sanitation and Health

The basic philosophy of FINISH Program is that financial incentives in the form of terms of credit and preferential access to health insurance can be used to stimulate demand for sanitation. And if access to finance could be provided to the financially excluded, the awareness drive for sanitation can translate into a willingness on the part of the population to borrow money to build their own toilets. Toilets constructed by the users, at their own initiative and with a financial commitment, have a greater chance of usage which can then influence habit change. The Program believes that a close connection between sanitation and health can be established and leveraged for development by enabling financial inclusion of the low income rural and urban communities vide a microfinance product i.e. sanitation loans. At the same time, the notion that toilets are but one aspect of safe sanitation is factored into the program. Other important aspects include hygiene, safe disposal of faecal matter, safe drinking water and solid waste management.

The Foundation is geared towards the education, advocacy and sensitization of the vulnerable and the less privileged on issues of crime and criminality. violence against women (physical and verbal), trafficking in persons and gender sensitization. It has been observed that most of the court cases involving vulnerable women and youths are as a result of crime committed out of ignorance or the need for survival. In law, ignorance is not an excuse so also is poverty not a reason for anyone to commit crime. The rate of crime among the vulnerable women and youths has become alarming and poses a challenge to all. In a bid to curb this ugly trend, OWYEF decided to take pro-active steps to address this problem amongst others with the aim of promoting peaceful co-existence, public security, political stability and economic development. OWYEF provides support for the less privilege women, youths and children through skills acquisition, entrepreneurship training and empowerment programs, educational grants and scholarship as well as micro-credit scheme.

pS-Eau (Programme Solidarité Eau)

The pS-Eau network was created in 1984 during the International Water and Sanitation Decade. It was hosted first by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and then by an NGO called GRET. The Nongovernmental Co-operation Mission has provided financial support for pS-Eau since its inception. As pS-Eau’s financing sources became more diversified, the Nongovernmental Co-operation Mission asked for it to be made into an autonomous entity at a Steering Committee meeting in December 1999. In December 2000, the articles of association of pS-Eau were officially registered. Following a transitional period of restructuring that lasted until June 2003, pS-Eau became fully autonomous. It went from being an informal network to a nongovernmental organisation under the responsibility of a board of directors. As an NGO, pS-Eau is a neutral forum for co-ordination and alignment between support/advice providers and for capacity-building in the water sector. It strives to meet all of the requests made to it, regardless of their scope. To preserve its neutrality, pS-Eau is not involved in financing or carrying out projects in the field. The general objective of the programme, as defined in the articles of association, is to “facilitate local initiatives for international co-operation in the water and sanitation sector, and more generally for the environment and development”. The specific objectives relate to support/advice, research/action, co-ordination, access to information and raising awareness of international co-operation. The operational objectives are set out in financing agreements signed by pS-Eau and donors.

Saniblog has since turned into a company that offers consultancy on water, sanitation and IT issues. The blog itself remains online and is still used to publish sanitation-related news by various guest authors.

Shital Ceramic Works

Considering the present scenario of potable water, we as a industrialist felt that we should contribute to save the environment by providing/manufacturing such a sanitaryware which consumes less water. In the open market these type of sanitarywares were not available and hence we have started manufacturing Ceramic Rural Pan, 20 mm Water Seal P-Trap. We are involved in Sanitation since 1986 and we are making necessary changes in the design as per Rural condition and durability of our products. Sanitation is a way of life as it helps in keeping the humanity in the best state of health. Over 80 percent of households in rural India and more than half in urban areas lack access to sanitation. With proper disposal of human waste, many of the sanitation related diseases could be minimized. Most cities and villages in India face serious threat socially as well as water management systems. Where conventional waterborne sewerage systems exits, human wastes are flushed away with huge amounts of scare fresh water, is polluting rivers and the drinking water sources. To overcome this problem, many countries have made a paradigm shift to provide sustainable sanitation called Ecological Sanitation “Eco San”.

Water For People

Water For People is a non-profit international development organization that helps people in developing countries improve their quality of life by supporting the development of locally sustainable drinking water resources, sanitation facilities, and health and hygiene education programs. Our vision is a world where all people have access to safe drinking water and adequate sanitation; a world where no one suffers or dies from a water- or sanitation-related disease. We believe that water and sanitation services should be reliable and permanent, so that districts and eventually entire nations never again need a development organization to address these challenges. We call this end state that we work towards Everyone Forever. What is "Everyone Forever?" EVERYONE means Water For People works to ensure that access to water reaches everyone--the poorest, the disenfranchised, and the most isolated. Everyone--every family, every school, and every health clinic. FOREVER means that the people where Water For People works--around the world in entire districts with many communities--can eventually operate, maintain, repair, replace, and extend their water and sanitation services themselves without the further assistance of Water For People.

WRC (Water Research Commission)

The WRC was established in terms of the Water Research Act (Act No 34 of 1971), following a period of serious water shortage. It was deemed to be of national importance to generate new knowledge and to promote the country’s water research purposefully, owing to the view held that water would be one of South Africa’s most limiting factors in the 21st century The strategic direction of the WRC is focused on: - An integrated approach to meeting South Africa's societal and water-sector R&D needs - Provision of integrated solutions to invariably complex, inter-disciplinary problems - Ongoing strategic identification of needs (short, medium and long-term needs, both explicit and implicit) - Investment in knowledge creation, transfer and dissemination in a set of 5 Key Strategic Areas (KSAs).

WSP - Africa (Water and Sanitation Program)

The Water and Sanitation Program (WSP) is a multi-donor partnership administered by the World Bank to support poor people in obtaining affordable, safe and sustainable access to water and sanitation services. They work directly with client governments at the local and national level in 25 countries through regional offices in Africa, East and South Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean, and in, Washington D.C. WSP has led or supported many of the advances made within the water and sanitation sector over the last three decades. They are able to share best practices across regions and place a strong focus on capacity-building by forming partnerships with academia, civil society organizations, donors, governments, media, private sector, and others. Their work helps to effect the regulatory and structural changes needed for broad water and sanitation sector reform. Their challenge is to replicate successful approaches, continue targeted learning efforts, and support reforms that ensure the adoption of sustainable investments in the sector that help people rise from poverty.

WTN (Wherever the Need)

Wherever the Need is a UK charity offering a new look at giving and supporting. Our aim is a holistic approach to the provision and use of eco-sanitation toilets and clean water, which we believe to be vital to the good health of both people and the planet. Once these fundamentals are in place, our focus is the development of sustainable livelihoods. It is our priority to implement projects that will directly benefit individuals over the long-term in the most efficient way possible (‘direct action’). This enables sponsors of the charity to respond specifically to the needs of local people (rather than indirectly through Governmental or large Non-Governmental Organisations) thus enabling, where wished, a connection to be established between those making the donation and those benefiting from it. In tandem with the provision of sanitation, water and livelihoods, WTN has responded to the building of houses and community centres in areas stricken by disaster. All projects are approached in the most environmentally sensitive manner possible to further the Trustee’s aim to safeguard the planet.

WTO (World Toilet Organization)

World Toilet Organization (WTO) is a global non-profit organization committed to improving toilet and sanitation conditions worldwide. WTO is also one of the few organizations to focus on toilets instead of water, which receives more attention and resources under the common subject of sanitation. Founded in 2001 with 15 members, it now has 235 member organizations in 58 countries working towards eliminating the toilet taboo and delivering sustainable sanitation. WTO was created as a global network and service platform wherein all toilet and sanitation organizations can learn from one another and leverage on media and global support that in turn can influence governments to promote sound sanitation and public health policies. WTO is the organizer of the very successful series of World Toilet Summits and World Toilet Expo and Forum.

x-runner Venture

x-runner Venture brings lasting and responsible sanitation to urban homes in Lima that do not have toilets. ----------- X-runner brings stylish waterless toilets and a weekly poop collection service to families that cannot have regular toilets and that want to improve their health, housing and lifestyles. X-runner ease customers’ daily lives and create a cleaner, healthier environment for the entire family. The x-runner toilets have been created with the customers for the customers: The resources-separating toilets allow for a clean and safe collection of excrements. They work without any water or chemicals: just a handful of sawdust is enough to bind bad smells and gases. X-runner’s customers subscribe for a monthly fee to the poop pick-up service that replaces the families’ full toilet waste buckets with clean ones. The full containers are then transported to the x-runner service hub where the buckets are emptied and the content is treated in a composting process. The used buckets are cleaned and disinfected for future service rounds.
