11. Sanitation Connection (SANICON):

In cooperation with the International Water Association (IWA), the Water and Sanitation Programme (WSP), the World Health Organisation (WHO), the Water Supply and Sanitation Collaborative Council (WSSCC) and the UNEP/GPA Coordination Office, an Internet-based interactive information network on environmental sanitation has been developed: SANICON. Environmental sanitation includes interventions to (a) reduce people’s exposure to disease by providing a clean environment in which to live, with measures to break the cycle of disease, and (b) minimize the negative impact on the wider environment and critical ecosystems caused by poor management of human and animal wastes.


Expected Outcome at IGR 2: Joint information provision.
