Opportunities and Challenges of Government-led SDG 6.1 monitoring in Fragile and Conflict Affected States RWSN Webinar series 2023 • Online

We would like to invite you to the first webinar of the RWSN Early series 2023, co-organised by Leave no one behind and Data for action themes, entitled: Opportunities and Challenges of Government-led SDG 6.1 monitoring in Fragile and Conflict Affected States. Although countries are making progress in attaining SDG 6.1 target, they continue to face numerous challenges in monitoring progress especially in fragile states and conflicted affected areas. While the international community continues to respond to the on-going humanitarian needs across such countries, there is a critical need to start thinking beyond the emergency to achieve sustainable Water services that last. The first step to improve quality in WASH interventions is to measure it. For effective and efficient water policies and investments, including priority setting, it is important to have timely and credible data to guide the WASH sector actions. This webinar will enable RWSN members and other rural water supply stakeholders to share and learn from experiences on opportunities and challenges of monitoring SDG6.1 in Fragile states and conflict-affected areas. We will reflect on which approaches can effectively be leveraged and scaled to strengthen government monitoring activities towards increased availability of high-quality data for evidence-based policymaking, planning and investments at all government levels. Rejoignez-nous pour le premier webinaire de la série RWSN Early, co-organisé par le LNOB et les thèmes de Data for action. Ce webinaire permettra aux membres du RWSN et à d'autres acteurs de l'approvisionnement en eau en milieu rural de partager et d'apprendre des expériences sur les opportunités et les défis du suivi de l'ODD 6.1 dans les États fragiles et les zones touchées par les conflits. Nous réfléchirons sur les approches qui peuvent être efficacement exploitées et mises à l'échelle pour renforcer les activités de suivi du gouvernement vers une disponibilité accrue de données de haute qualité pour l'élaboration de politiques, la planification et les investissements fondés sur des données probantes à tous les niveaux du gouvernement.

Would you like to mentor someone, or be mentored? RWSN mentoring programme announcement (EN/ FR/ SP) Register to be a mentor and/or a mentee by 15 May 2023 / Inscrivez-vous devenir mentor et/ou mentoré avant le 15 mai 2023.

In 2023, for the fourth year, RWSN is running its mentoring programme for the water sector. Hundreds of water professionals have already participated in the RWSN mentoring programme in previous years. This year, we will be using the PushFar online platform for mentors and mentees to be able to find each other directly. ∙ How does the RWSN Mentoring Programme work? Our mentoring programme lasts 6 months and connects a mentor and a mentee in the water sector. Mentors and mentees find each other via the PushFar platform, and then maintain communication directly through PushFar, Skype, WhatsApp, email, messages etc, as they prefer. Our guidance document (in English, French or Spanish) can give you an idea of the timeline and structure of the programme. ∙ What are the benefits of the RWSN Mentoring Programme? To get an idea of the benefits of participating in the RWSN Mentoring Programme, you can watch this video and read the blogs where some of our previous RWSN mentees and mentors share their experience. In case you still need convincing, our partner PushFar has some really interesting statistics on the benefits of mentoring for mentees AND mentors here. ∙ Who is the RWSN Mentoring Programme for? The 2023 RWSN Mentoring programme is open to all RWSN members and free of charge. If you are not yet a RWSN member, you can join RWSN here. Mentees: All young professionals under the age of 35 and women of all ages in the water sector are eligible to be mentees. In addition, alumni of selected RWSN courses (on solar-powered water systems, groundwater resources management, and professional drilling management) will also be eligible and will be included by invitation only. There is no minimum level of experience required. Students are welcome to participate. Mentors: There is no age requirement for mentors (senior professionals), but they should have a minimum of 5 years of professional experience in the water sector. We are looking for a range of mentors with different levels of experience and a variety of skills, so don’t hesitate to apply even if you feel that you may not be ‘senior’ enough. We strongly encourage women to sign up both as mentors and mentees, as they are currently under-represented in our membership and in the sector more broadly – and we would like this to change! Interested and want to join as a mentor, mentee, or both? Read our guidance document first (in English, French or Spanish) to check that you understand your role and are eligible, and then sign up through our online platform. You may find these guidelines helpful to navigate the online platform. The number of participants of the RWSN Mentoring Programme is capped and participants will be admitted on a first-come, first-served basis – so sign up early to avoid disappointment! | »
