CoP SSC4C Thematic webinar: How South-South Cooperation contributes to achieving the SDG 6 of ensuring access of all to clean water and sanitation?


The Community of Practice on South-South Cooperation for Children (CoP-SSC4C) organised its first thematic webinar on SDG 6: Clean water and sanitation, with a focus on Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH). It has provided an opportunity for members of the Community to come together and share good practices in WASH and to discuss how WASH solutions are shared globally and scaled-up through South-South cooperation. The webinar brought together panellists from the Government of Brazil, UNICEF’s office in Ethiopia and UNICEF headquarters. They have shared their experience and insight in promoting South-South cooperation, how SSC contributes to advancing WASH objectives and how SSC advances the SDGs.

Join the CoP-SSC4C Online Community and take part in the exchange of lessons learned and discussions on how SSC can facilitate exchange and the scaling up of good practices and solutions in the thematic area of WASH!
