The Water Supply and Sanitation Collaborative Council (WSSCC) Community of Practice on Sanitation and Hygiene in Developing Countries and the Centre of Excellence in Water and Sanitation at Mzuzu University (Malawi) are holding a joint 3-week thematic discussion on research in use in water, sanitation and hygiene. The LinkedIn hosted CoP has over 5,900 members each working in WASH and other related sectors; this thematic discussion will be an opportunity to bring together sector practitioners and researchers to share knowledge, learn from each other, identify best practice and explore links between research and practice in the sector.

The thematic discussion will take place on the CoP; with a coordinator moderating the discussions. The discussion will be split into three inter-linked sub-themes and conversation leaders will frame and prompt debates each week on:

 3 - 9 October – Theme 1: How to pull practitioners into research

 10 - 16 October – Theme 2: Low-cost WASH technologies

 17 - 22 October – Theme 3: Reducing sanitation-related psychosocial stress, and improving the safety and quality of life for women and girls

Weekly summaries of discussions will be posted on the CoP as well as a synthesis report of overarching findings at the end.

We look forward to some constructive and in-depth discussions!
