A concept note for discussion

Posted by caridad en mayo 1, 2007

Sigo con atención sus publicaciones, que me mantienen actualizado sobre los temas más importantes en América Latina y en el mundo”. Alejo Molinari,

Director del PT-ADERASA, Buenos Aires, 9.2.07.  

IntroductionAlejo Molinari reads Boletin de Noticias news to be updated on the most important issues on water and sanitation in
Latin America and the rest of the world.
More than 40,000 policy makers, sector professionals and information specialists are also using Source as their primary tool to inform themselves on water and sanitation issues and access related sites on the Internet.


Since 1998, Source News Service provides news digests in English, French, Spanish and Japanese on the WASH sector. Currently, 8.400 people are subscribed to the electronic version of Source.  The service aims to regularly update all stakeholders about the latest sector trends and policies, relevant new resources, innovative practices and lessons learned. Presently, Source is a global news service with regional editions for Latin America and
Western Africa.
 However, to cope with the growing need of information in
Latin America and particularly in Bolivia CGIAB requested IRC in January 2007 to translate articles from Source Weekly to be used in “Todo sobre Agua”.  “Todo sobre Agua is a newsletter produced by CGIAB (Comisión para la Gestión Integral del Agua en
Bolivia), an alliance of public and private institutions and research centres involved in water and sanitation issues.

The objective of the
Latin America regional programme is to contribute substantively to the achievement of the Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) related MDG’s. To achieve this, the programme promote and support the development of the sector capacity for information and knowledge management and learning activities through the development and strengthening of regional, sub-regional and national networks and platforms. By disseminating IRC/RCD experiences in “Todo sobre Agua” and its radio program it is expected that links between CGIAB network can be strengthened and that RCD experiences in
Bolivia and other GPS members can better be understood.
The experience also generates many interesting elements for further learning and knowledge development on innovative communication channels.  This concept note proposes to help CGIAB in the production of “Todo sobre Agua” newsletter and its radio programme and benefit from working together in the 2nd half of 2007.   In June 2007 as part of the new phase approved by CGIAB’s council, this institution will start a radio program with the idea of debating on the issues published in their newsletter “Todo sobre Agua”.Objectives

  1. Strenthen the content of Source and Boletin de Noticias with field stories (interviews, case studies, etc) from
  2. Facilitate dissemination of Source Bulletin and Boletin de Noticias in
    Bolivia including IRC’ s experiences and concepts in the region

Sinergies with the Regional Programme in
Latin America:
