Frequently Asked Questions
Are there any submission guidelines for Ask the Expert questions?
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.

activities, we will be hosting three training events in 2013. These training events will
