Sustainable Sanitation Alliance

The Sustainable Sanitation Alliance (SuSanA) is an informal network of people and organisations who share a common vision on sustainable sanitation and who want to contribute to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals, in particular SDG6. The SuSanA with its library, project database and discussion forum – is an important resource for anyone wanting to explore the possibilities of sustainable sanitation.


Regional Chapter West Asia and North Africa

As most resources and in particularly training materials are not adapted to the Middle Eastern context, and are available in English only, they are inaccessible for the Arabic speaking communities, NGOs, refugee camp managers and other key stakeholders affected by the recent crisis.


The SuSanA regional chapter provides different functionalities of the chapter, including relevant publications in Arabic, open source training materials, topics for discussion


By conceptualizing and initiating a SuSanA Regional Chapter for the West Asia and North Africa (WANA), cewas Middle East develops and strengthens the capacities of organisations and individuals in the sustainable sanitation sector in the Middle East and increase the resilience of vulnerable populations.


Local practitioners, SuSanA members and partners from the Middle East have the opportunity to use the Regional Chapter as a sounding board for their activities, access the regional library and use the platform to connect and share experiences. Through combined resources and knowledge exchange, higher impact and efficiency can be achieved.
