What is AGUASAN? AGUASAN is an interdisciplinary Swiss community of practice that – as a knowledge platform and think-thank – has a crucial role in shaping the response to water and sanitation sector issues in development cooperation and humanitarian aid since 1984. Besides convening quarterly knowledge sharing events, the community organises an international workshop in Switzerland once a year.

What are AGUASAN Workshops? AGUASAN Workshops provide a joint learning experience and utilise the broad knowledge gathered by the participants to elaborate strategies and conceptual tools of practical use for development work, highly relevant for sector interventions at local, national and global level. They are the annual highlight of the AGUASAN community of practice and provide a unique forum for in-depth exchange and cognition by exploring new issues, whilst consolidating relevant experiences.

Who stands behind the workshops? AGUASAN Workshops are convened by a steering committee consisting of members from the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC), the Eawag Department Sanitation, Water and Solid Waste for Development (Sandec), HELVETAS Swiss Intercooperation and the Swiss Resource Centre and Consultancies for Development (Skat). After 31 years of lead by Skat, seecon international gmbh is the implementing organization for the AGUASAN Workshops since 2016.
