Through the side event, experts from SNV, WSP and UNICEF will look at the conditions that have enabled countries to accelerate their sanitation progress, discuss what it takes to achieve progress with equity and examine evidence from impact evaluations of large-scale rural sanitation programmes.
Presenting evidence and results from recent studies and programmes from around the world, the event will aim to inform and stimulate the global dialogue on how to accelerate rural sanitation progress.
