The Sustainable Sanitation Alliance (SuSanA) is an informal network of organizations that share a common vision on sustainable sanitation. SuSanA came into existence in early 2007 and works as a coordination platform, working platform, sounding board, contributor to the policy dialogue on sustainable sanitation and as a “catalyst”. At the present time, the secretariat function is carried out by GIZ (German International Cooperation) and the current number of partners is displayed at the bottom of this page.
Participation is open to those who want to join and be active in the promotion of sustainable sanitation systems. The SuSanA invites international, regional and local organizations to join the network, contribute ideas, and to become active partners in the thematic working groups.
