The bi-lingual West Africa Regional Symposium on Sanitation and Hygiene (3-5 Nov 2009, Accra, Ghana) brought together about 140 participants from 17 countries. It was jointly organised by the Resource Centre Network Ghana, UNICEF, West Africa Water Initiative (WAWI), WaterAid, and IRC International Water and Sanitation Centre, and supported by the Water Supply and Sanitation Collaborative Council.

A wide range of experts and practitioners, coming from 11 different countries in West Africa, presented papers on issues such as Community Led Total Sanitation (CLTS), ecological sanitation, school sanitation and hygiene promotion. The presentations were used as an appetizer for more in-depth discussion in smaller groups of maximum 12 participants. The symposium provided a platform both for Anglophone and Francophone participants to share good practices and explore new ways forward.
