WASH Reference Group

The Water and Sanitation Reference Group is a community of practice of dedicated non-government organisations and research institutions who are working together to enhance Australian-based sanitation and water initiatives overseas.

Our aims

The WASH Reference Group aims to strengthen and improve the quality of  Australia‚Äôs response to the global sanitation and water crisis. We do this through a community of practice of Australian NGOs, academia and the private sector that come together to exchange knowledge and best practice and build awareness and support for WASH.

Members of the Group interact regularly on an informal and formal basis. The Group also regularly engages in constructive dialogue with Australian Government Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, which recognises the Reference Group as a focal point for engagement and policy and programming dialogue on WASH.
