This pre-read to the 2014 WASH Sustainability Forum has been prepared by the Forum Track Leads and Organizing Committee. It provides three short overviews of WASH sustainability tools as they apply to the three tracks of the Forum, namely: Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene. While presented from diverse perspectives, these sections each address the meaning of sustainability for that sub‐sector, the current state of tools, and the challenges, gaps, and opportunities moving forward. Additionally, they provide a framework for each track during the 2014 WASH Sustainability Forum, contextualizing the presentations and framing the starting point for discussions. (Link)
