The SuSanA platform and the Shit Flow Diagram – tools to achieve more sustainable sanitation for all

March 21, 2016

Daniela Krahl of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Development and Cooperation (BMZ) has said that: “The water strategy of our Ministry is seen as a model because it addresses the spirit of the SDGs in a holistic manner, thus going beyond SDG 6. That is what we need today and that is why I like the excreta flow diagram. It brings people from different spheres together to understand a challenge that they can only solve together. A platform – the Sustainable Sanitation Alliance (SuSanA) – has been formed to allow for discussion on sanitation at all levels, particularly with an inter-sectoral outlook, and with the aim to find equitable and sustainable solutions. That is why the Ministry is supporting cooperation in German development expertise on this platform, and is proud to see its positive impact.”
