Stakeholder meeting on Global Analysis and Assessment of Sanitation (GLAAS) began this morning at Champa Central Hotel. It is a UN initiative implemented by the World Health Organization (WHO). GLAAS objectives are defined as, at the global and regional level, monitoring the inputs (in terms of human resources and finance) and the enabling environment (in terms of laws, plans and policies, institutional and monitoring arrangements), required to sustain and extend water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) systems and services to all, and especially to the most vulnerable population groups.
In a national context, GLAAS aims to complement sector review processes and to assist in assessing the state of the enabling environment including financial and human resources inputs being directed to sanitation, drinking water and hygiene whilst identifying barriers and enablers.
The meeting is attended by stakeholders from different institutions.
