The Sustainable Development Goals, launched in 2015, include a target to ensure everyone has access to a safely managed household toilet by 2030. This makes sanitation central to eradicating extreme poverty.

In order to advance the discussion on solutions to the sanitation crisis, Water Supply & Sanitation Collaborative Council (WSSCC) will moderate a one hour Twitter discussion in relation to World Toilet Day. The chat will be hosted on Monday November 20 at 9 am ET / 3PM GMT+1. The discussion will bring together experts in the sanitation space to discuss what needs to be done to raise awareness and understanding of wastewater and human waste management.

WSSCC will ‘moderate’ the chat and panelists will include representatives from the Container Based Sanitation Alliance, the Toilet Board Coalition, the Global Handwashing Partnership and SOIL.

The hashtag is #WastewaterIs and #WorldToiletDay, we look forward to chatting with you soon!
