SanMark Community of Practice – A Peer Learning Exchange
Ask the Expert is a feature where people can submit Sanitation Marketing questions and receive feedback from experts in the field. Questions can be in the form of a few sentences or up to 1,000 words. If you have a specific case-study related question, we ask that you provide details about the background to the project and as much information as possible so that our experts can provide useful feedback. While the idea of the Sanitation Marketing Community of Practice is to share knowledge, you can choose not to publish your question and answer to the Ask the Expert page. To submit an Ask the Expert question please follow this link.
Sanitation Marketing resources, information and literature will be made available on the Resources page. This page will be updated regularly so please check back to download any new materials. Literature referred to by experts and webinar presenters will be posted here.
As part of the Sanitation Marketing Community of Practice learning activities, we will be hosting three training events in 2013. These training events will be based on key lessons that emerge during the webinars and will be held in Cambodia, Kenya and Fiji. They will run over three days and are designed specifically for field practitioners. It is expected that participants attending these training events will have a practical knowledge of Sanitation Marketing. The fourth event is a wrap-workshop held over one day in Canberra, Australia. More details about applying to attend a training event will be released shortly.
There are many ways to get involved in the Sanitation Marketing Community of Practice: join a webinar session, attend a workshop, ask a question, submit blog posts or share your stories and experiences with sanitation marketing in the field.
