Behaviour change in sanitation: synopsis from the 13th SanCop meeting (November 2013)

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

The 13th meeting of the UK’s Sanitation Community of Practice was held on Wednesday 20th November 2013 at Cranfield University. The rationale for the meeting is to draw upon DFID’s 2013 WASH evidence paper, which argues that behaviour change for hygiene and sanitation, especially at scale, is a key evidence gap in the sector. The aims of the day were as follows:

  • Set out the key challenges by identifying the current state of sector knowledge and practice regarding behaviour change in sanitation
  • Learn from other disciplines- by hearing and learning from other sectors about how they approach behaviour change
  • Make the link between analysis of different behaviour change problems and designing interventions to address these findings
  • Discuss the limits to our interventions and how difficult it is to change behaviour

Over fifty participants attended the event from universities, private enterprises, government and non-governmental institutions.
