Event type: Side Event

Convenor: UN-Water Thematic Priority Area on Drinking Water and Sanitation
Room: K16/17

Event Description
The United Nations have put their efforts behind the Drive to 2015 (www.sanitationdrive2015.org) to take concrete action to achieve sanitation and hygiene for all. The Drive calls for ending open defecation - a practice where inequalities between different social groups are most starkly evidenced. The Drive urges all to tackle this inequity by giving priority to the poorest and most marginalized populations.

The Drive's latest campaign material, including a planner's guide, factsheets and a flyer will be presented at the event. Discussion will explore how equity-focused approaches can help to realize the right to sanitation. With three years left, participants will also focus on accelerating progress towards the MDG sanitation target, while also looking at how to influence the post 2015 development framework.
