The Water Supply and Sanitation Collaborative Council (WSSCC) is at the heart of the global movement to improve sanitation and hygiene, so that all people can enjoy healthy and productive lives. Established in 1990, WSSCC is the only United Nations body devoted solely to the sanitation needs of the most vulnerable and marginalized people. WSSCC is implementing a new strategic plan for 2017-2020. The overriding aim of the plan is to accelerate progress towards Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) target 6.2 “By 2030, achieve access to adequate and equitable sanitation and hygiene for all and end open defecation, paying special attention to the needs of women and girls and those in vulnerable situations”.
To achieve the goal of ending open defecation and ensuring improved sanitation and hygiene for all the WSSCC created the Global Sanitation Fund (GSF) in 2008. The Global Sanitation Fund (GSF) invests in collective behaviour change approaches and policy advocacy that enable large numbers of people in developing countries to improve their access to sanitation and adopt good hygiene practices. GSF-supported country programmes are expected to enhance efforts in reaching the most vulnerable (including those affected by climate change); addressing the needs of women and girls (including MHM); scale-up school WASH activities and improve supply-side efforts (including sanitation marketing). The GSF is currently supporting programmes in 11 countries.
WSSCC is currently rolling out a new planning & budgeting tool aligned with its recently revised Results Framework (RFW), that will support biannual planning for the upcoming 2019-2020 cycle, as part of its 2017-2020 Strategic Plan.
In addition, WSSCC is currently rolling out an upgraded financial and results reporting tool to be used by all large grants (including GSF supported programmes) funded by WSSCC. The Financial and Results Reporting Tool (FRT) is structured on the programme results framework and will capture financial and programme results data and will underpin the ability to perform value-for-money analysis (by programme managers and the WSSCC Secretariat).
The Planning, Monitoring, Evaluation and Reporting Unit (PMERU), is hiring a Monitoring and Data Analyst to support with activities related to the development of the WSSCC revised planning and budgeting tool, as well as the online FRT for WSSCC large grants. The Monitoring and Data Analyst will oversee roll out and maintenance needs for the tool, provide training and technical support to users of the tool and play a pivotal role in collating, reviewing and analysing of data that will in turn inform WSSCC programmatic decisions.
