WASH and nutrition – bridging sectors and circular approaches

Lack of safe and sustainable water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) and poor nutrition is a global challenge. In this seminar and workshop we examine cross-sectoral aspects of WASH and nutrition, the importance of WASH for nutrition, reuse aspects of WASH for food, explore what a resilience approach might mean within WASH planning and also discuss the relevance of WASH and nutrition in Sweden.

The aim is to share knowledge and experiences across sectors and actors and to act as a meeting point for collaboration or further exchange.
