The Water Supply and Sanitation Collaborative Council (WSSCC) is hosted by UNOPS.

The Water Supply and Sanitation Collaborative Council (WSSCC) is at the heart of the global movement to improve sanitation and hygiene, so that all people can enjoy healthy and productive lives. Established in 1990, WSSCC is the only United Nations body devoted solely to the sanitation needs of the most vulnerable and marginalized people. WSSCC is implementing a new strategic plan for 2017-2020. The overriding aim of the plan is to accelerate progress towards Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) target 6.2 “By 2030, achieve access to adequate and equitable sanitation and hygiene for all and end open defecation, paying special attention to the needs of women and girls and those in vulnerable situations”.

To achieve the goal of ending open defecation and ensuring improved sanitation and hygiene for all the WSSCC created the Global Sanitation Fund (GSF) in 2008. The Global Sanitation Fund (GSF) invests in collective behaviour change approaches and policy advocacy that enable large numbers of people in developing countries to improve their access to sanitation and adopt good hygiene practices. GSF-supported country programmes are expected to enhance efforts in reaching the most vulnerable (including those affected by climate change); addressing the needs of women and girls (including MHM); scale-up school WASH activities and improve supply-side efforts (including sanitation marketing). The GSF is currently supporting programmes in 11 countries.

In 2017, WSSCC adopted its 2017-2020 Strategic Plan leading to an extensive review and strengthening of its M&E systems. Accompanying and supporting the M&E system are the Organizational Results framework, the GSF programmatic theory of change, an output based budgeted organizational workplan, and the integrated monitoring, evaluation and research plan (IMERP) to monitor the status of the various organizational M&E initiative.

In 2019 WSSCC is starting a mid-term strategic review of the 2017-2020 Strategic Plan to inform the next strategic period, while monitoring and evaluating the current programs for course correction, continued relevance, learning and accountability. Under the Planning, Monitoring, Evaluation and Reporting Unit (PMERU), WSSCC is hiring a Monitoring and Evaluation Intern to support with activities related to the Strategic Planning, and the monitoring and evaluation of the organizational workplan, and the programs in the focus countries, regionally and globally.

Further information is available in the WSSCC website:

The Monitoring and Evaluation Intern will be oriented on the support to the collation, review, analysis, and drawing of insights from programme and survey data, in support of the mid-term strategic review, and support the training on methods of outcome surveys. The intern will also support the update and coordination of the organizational workplan and IMERP and provide planning support to various events to inform the next Strategic Plan development and related to monitoring and evaluation.
