WSSCC Internship – Monitoring and Evaluation

Apply by March 5, 2017

Background Information

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 embarking on 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 that enable large numbers of people in developing countries to improve their access to sanitation and adopt good hygiene practices. The GSF is supporting programmes in 13 countries and since 2008 has committed over $112 million to transform lives in developing countries.

The GSF is an integral part of the WSSCC Secretariat, which is located in Geneva, Switzerland. Further information including a full description of GSF is available in the WSSCC website: www.wsscc.org

GSF is hiring a Monitoring Intern to support with activities related to the GSF monitoring system including the reporting of results and analysis of data coming from the 13 GSF country programmes.
