Welcome to SACOSAN-V

South Asian Conference on Sanitation (SACOSAN), a government led biennial convention held on a rotational basis in each SAARC country provides a platform for interaction on sanitation.  SACOSANs are intended to develop a Regional agenda on sanitation, enabling learning from the past experiences and setting actions for the future. The objectives of such conferences are to accelerate the progress in sanitation and hygiene promotion in South Asia and to enhance quality of people's life. The SACOSAN process is instrumental to generate political wills towards better sanitation in the region.
