The Water Supply and Sanitation Collaborative Council (WSSCC) is a global, multi-stakeholder membership and partnership organization that advocates for improved sanitation and hygiene for the most vulnerable and marginalized people around the world. With the United Nations General Assembly resolution A/RES/45/181, WSSCC was established in 1990 to intensify “the coordination of national activities undertaken with the assistance of all relevant agencies in the field of water supply and sanitation.”

The WSSCC Secretariat is hosted by the United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS) and located in Geneva, Switzerland. WSSCC enhances national efforts through the Global Sanitation Fund (GSF) to help rural communities improve their sanitation and adopt good hygiene practices in countries such as Benin, Cambodia, Ethiopia, Kenya, Madagascar, Malawi, Nepal, Nigeria, Senegal, Tanzania, Togo and Uganda. In India, WSSCC is providing assistance through its India Support Unit as an accredited Key Resource Centre for capacity building and learning. In the rest of the countries, National Coordinators assume a pivotal role in representing WSSCC and ensuring that appropriate amplification and integration take place across various interventions supported by the Council. The GSF also appoints an Executing Agency (EA) to administer the grant in these countries and each EA makes sub-grants to non-government organizations, private sector and local governments to implement its programmes.

Under the direct supervision of the Head of Corporate Communications and Advocacy and working closely with WSSCC’s communications team, the French Digital Content Producer is tasked with launching WSSCC’s web pages (wsscc.org/french) in French to create compelling public-facing content and to provide digital/translation services within the organization. The consultant will draw special attention of French speaking audiences to WSSCC’s key priorities and achievements, encouraging their support, participation and action, as well as ensuring greater transparency and accountability.

The position will support WSSCC’s content generation capacity to put a human face on the issues related to sanitation and hygiene and promote WSSCC’s role in the achievement of Sustainable Development Goal 6.2. In particular, the consultant will showcase how WSSCC and its partners are carrying out their activities to “leave no one behind” and concretize its new strategic goals into clear, engaging and inspirational articles.

The consultant will also be involved in the production and translation of WSSCC’s publications and relevant outreach materials with a view to increase global knowledge on WASH, women and girls’ access to services, recent policy developments and more broadly the sustainable development goals.
