The fifth issue of the WASH ePaper is devoted to the topic “WASH and Nutrition” and is a follow-up document to the Bonn WASH Nutrition Forum (the Forum), which took place in November 2015 in Bonn, Germany. Linking WASH and nutrition has globally gained momentum. Strong scientific evidence on the relationship of poor WASH conditions and nutritional implications have emerged over the past years.

Beyond that, the German WASH Network and a broad coalition of renowned partners campaign globally for better collaboration between WASH and nutrition actors.

WASH–POST-IMPLEMENTATION MONITORING

The third issue of the WASH e-Paper is devoted to the issue of post-implementation monitoring (PIM) and ways of ensuring that the access to water supply and sanitation provided by WASH projects is guaranteed even after a project comes to an end. Comprehensive and robust monitoring of implemented WASH services– including, and especially, beyond the project term –is essential if WASH sytems are to be maintained, operated, repaired and, where appropriate, expanded in the long term. The approaches to post-project sustainability monitoring and safeguarding presented in this issue give an overview of the state of current international debate. In large part, they are based on an international PIM workshop organised by Welthungerhilfe and held in Addis Ababa in April 2015.
