WASH Knowledge Newsletter/Update Initiative
First Issue of WASH Knowledge Update
WASH Update a collaborative initiative of like minded individuals and organisations in WASH, with the aim to promote more informal meeting, learning and sharing on a regular basis. This is not a formal Network or a single organisation initiative. The idea germinated from a meeting of a few of us recently and the fact that there are several formal platforms and initiatives already existing but there is a gap in terms of informality of meeting and learning in WASH sector.
Some years ago under Mr. Juan Costain at Water and Sanitation Programme(WSP), there was an informal mechanism of quarterly meeting and sharing on WASH thematic issues, where people came together to present and discuss what they were doing.
The WASH Knowledge Update is intended to be a quarterly electronic newsletter. The Update is intended to include initiatives of WASH agencies, written with a reflective learning perspective, and news updates from media and newspapers.
This Update is Edited by Mr. Bharat Dogra and Ms. Reena Mehta, experienced grass roots development and documentation experts. An Editorial Board is envisaged, for providing guidance for the Knowledge Update, deciding the learning agenda of Quarterly Meetings and any other learning initiative.
Several individuals and organisations including India WASH Forum, NIUA, MARI, WaterAid, Aga Khan Foundation, IRC, PRAXIS, CBGA, India Water Portal, World Vision India and WSSCC have pledged support for this initiative.
