In line with the trends predicted for the coming decade, a stronger focus will be requested from WASH professionals to be integrators, meaning those who have an understanding of multiple specialties and how they impact each other. As such, and given that Save the Children focuses on integrated WASH, we now have a six-month Integrated WASH webinar series focusing on a range of sub-themes linked to WASH. The aspects of integrated WASH in line with the sub-topics below will also reflect on the humanitarian and development nexus which will remain a key element of our work with the predicted post humanitarian crisises that shall continue to emerge in the future.

The objective of this webinar series entitled Being Fit for purpose’: Perspectives on the future of Integrated WASH is to:

  • Understand WASH within the context of the specific sub-thematic areas
  • Provide an overview of the sub-theme within the context of WASH (e.g. this can be more theoretical) and then placing it in an operational/case context within field settings
  • Further discuss on minimum indicators that are required in these sub-thematic topics within the context of the humanitarian and development nexus

Target audience:
Variety of professionals with SC and externally who are interested in understanding more about integrated programming in line with the humanitarian to development nexus within specific sub-thematic areas.

The first webinar session which will focus on WASH linked to Nutrition taking place on Thursday, October 24th @ 11am GMT.
