A Community of Practice on Sanitation and Hygiene in Developing Countries (CoP) was initiated in 2010. The aim of the CoP is to reinforce the global community of those working in sanitation and hygiene and create a neutral platform to share and learn together. By using LinkedIn as the technological and collaborative platform, members may share knowledge and learn from each other in ways that can measurably contribute to the efficiency and effectiveness of WASH programmes.
The CoP is currently coordinated by the Water Supply and Sanitation Collaborative Council (WSSCC). The coordinator works with a global team of ‘stewards’ who are dedicated and well-respected sector professionals. The Stewards are responsible for the strategic decisions for the CoP and each one brings different opportunities, networks and geographical representation to the table.
