The Water Supply and Sanitation Collaborative Council (WSSCC) recently launched an online global Community of Practice (CoP) for Sanitation and Hygiene. The aim is to reinforce the global community of those working in sanitation and hygiene and create a neutral platform to share and learn together. Find out more about the Community of Practice In order to join the group, you will need to create a Linked In profile.

Vision
The Community of Practice (CoP) provides a neutral overarching web or "meta platform" that links existing learning, networks, working groups and practitioners in sanitation and hygiene together. The intention is for the initiative to be sector owned where practitioners come together in a neutral space without logos or organizational affiliation to share and learn from each other.

Mission
The CoP will convene a series of thematic learning and engagement platforms for sanitation and hygiene practitioners and professionals. Working with strategic partners, the CoP will convene face-to-face and online forums for exchange. These activities may take place within other sector events (conferences / forums or using existing infrastructure (discussion boards / webinars / social networks). Each CoP activity will be designed to promote in-depth dialogue and honest debate, sharing problems and solutions and identifying best practices in a way that will benefit practitioners.
