The role of social and behaviour change strategies in achieving Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 6.2 is the focus of this presentation from the July 17 2018 event Raised Hands - People, Cities and WASH: Global Alliance for Social and Behaviour Change - Informed and Engaged Societies. After situating water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) issues within the SDG framework, WASH specialist Michael Emerson Gnilo provides an overview of community approaches to sanitation and then looks in depth at 3 country examples: (i) Mali, to explore effectiveness and impact; (ii) the Philippines, to examine addressing sustainability; and (iii) Guatemala, to highlight institutional triggering.
