Human Rights Education Associates Gender-based Violence Addressing gender-based violence (GBV) has gained increasing prominence in the work of human rights, humanitarian and development organisations internationally. GBV is now recognised as a violation of basic human rights with detrimental impacts on the health and social status of survivors of GBV, as well as on society as a whole. International humanitarian and development agencies are increasingly engaging on this issue both through specific programmes that address GBV, as well as through mainstreaming GBV within wider sectoral approaches.
IDEAL Public Health and Development Consultancy Behaviour Change Communication (BCC) for Health Promotion Each year, a lot of resources are spent trying to modify human behaviour. While some intervention strategies are successful, many fall short of their intended goals. Research shows that those interventions most likely to achieve desired outcomes are based on a clear understanding of the targeted health behaviours and the environmental context in which they occur. Behaviour Change Communication (BCC) has been successfully used by various health promotion programs to improve the well being of target populations.
IDEAL Public Health and Development Consultancy Water Safety Planning for Drinking Water Supply Systems Ensuring safe and healthy drinking water may be as simple as turning on the tap from a regulated public water supply system. Other water sources may require some form of treatment before drinking for example the use of water filter, a check on water fluoridation, or an inspection to ensure a septic tank is not too close to a private well. It is important to know where drinking water comes from, how it has been treated, and if it is safe to drink.

Network for Water and Sanitation Participatory Hygiene and Sanitation Transformation (PHAST) About the course Promotion of hygiene and sanitation has traditionally been based on directives, training and guidelines targeting individuals and households .However these messages rarely led to significant improvement in hygiene behavior. The poor state of top down didactic approaches has had little impact in transforming communities to change their behaviors’ to counter this problem there is need to use participatory methods
Network for Water and Sanitation Mainstreaming Gender and Mapping Vulnerabilities in Water and Sanitation using Participatory Methodologies It’s becoming increasingly important today to incorporate issues of gender in all aspects of water and sanitation to enhance sustainability of the projects. History has proved that over 70 % of the water and sanitation interventions in developing world that have ignore gender issues proved to be unsustainable. The course on mainstreaming gender in water and sanitation seeks to address this anomaly by using participatory approach through out the training.
Network for Water and Sanitation Scaling Up Community Management for Sustainable Water Supply and Sanitation Knowing the right way forward is one thing, but achieving the rate of progress needed to meet the MDG targets is another, these calls for ways of addressing the need to provide on-going support to the many existing water and sanitation systems. There is great need to replicate success and concentrate on “scaling up” the community-management model to bring concurrent successes to many community managed programs
Network for Water and Sanitation Result Based Monitoring and Evaluation and Resource Mobilization for WASH Programs Many programmes have not adequately incorporated participatory monitoring in their activities. Consequently, monitoring has continued to be viewed as an activity that is carried out by outsiders, or an activity to satisfy funding conditionality. Where monitoring has existed, it has mainly focused on efficiency (i.e. numbers of completed activities), overlooking the effectiveness (i.e. functionality, utilization), for the realization of the intended benefits. Even then, the information collected is not fed back to the users.
Network for Water and Sanitation WASH and Nutrition Nutrition is a key aspect in our day to day life. Sanitation related diseases affect the nutrition status of both children and adults which may consequently lead to many deaths and yet these conditions can be managed nutritionally. Both nutrition and sanitation are both key areas that should be addressed in emergencies. One can't be managed leaving the other as they both affect each other largely.
Network for Water and Sanitation WASH in Emergencies: Risk Reduction The period during and after disasters signifies a time of great risk in the transmission of infectious diseases. Conditions are often unsanitary and conducive to disease outbreak. The associated risks to health are due to lack of safe drinking water, poor sanitation and hygiene practices. Early identification of appropriate, technically sound and sustainable water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) interventions is therefore critical, for a fast and effective response to disasters.
Network for Water and Sanitation Sustainable Water Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) in Schools and Communities The shared world vision for hygiene, sanitation and water supply for the new millennium recognizes hygiene conditions and adequate access to safe water and sanitation services as a fundamental right. This continues to be challenging as community WASH programmes do not adequately address hygiene promotion alongside hardware. Universal primary education in many developing countries has resulted in significant increase in schools enrolment but with inadequate facilities and little hygiene, thus affecting learning environment.

Network for Water and Sanitation Water Safety Plans as effective Quality Management Tools for Utilities (2nd Run) Water Safety Plans (WSPs) provide water utilities with a riskbased, preventative approach to managing water supplies with the cooperation of other key stakeholders. Successful implementation of WSPs can improve drinking water quality, accrue operational efficiencies and provide a robust framework to better target more sustainable capital investments. Water safety plans also addresses factors that contribute to management of non-revenue water (NRW) through physical water losses in distribution systems.

Recognize water’s cooperation potential and the benefits to be drawn from collaborative transboundary water management between state actors;

Apprehend how diplomatic methods based on dialogue may be used to encourage mutually-beneficial problem-to-solution processes;

Comprehend the importance and structure of transnational water management institutions in their role to consolidate and sustain the benefits of cooperation around water. is every living organism’s common denominator. Societies depend on it for their own subsistence and growth, and go great lengths to ensure water secure futures. But freshwater is not, in essence and in practice, an egalitarian resource and its accessibility to some often means inaccessibility to others. With unprecedented population growth, new emerging economies and the effects of climate change, pressures on our finite freshwater resources are increasing. Meanwhile, the ability of some nations to secure their aqueous requirements is being severely challenged, causing great and legitimate concern that tensions around water hotspots will intensify among water users. Yet, water holds an immense potential for cooperation which has still to be understood and empowered. Water is and will remain at the heart of international peace and security, the defense of human rights and the imperative for sustainable development paths. An increasingly strong and coordinated response is therefore expected from the international community in order to raise awareness, mitigate conflict, and build cooperation from the growing challenges posed by water between sovereign states.UNITAR mdp-elearning@unitar.orgSbP MO
