"Asia Listening", a call for South Asian Journalists to capture Sanitation Issues
(Date: 27/07/08 Source: Darryl D'Monte, Editor, Asia Listening)

You may possibly have seen a document called "Listening" brought out by the Water Supply & Sanitation Collaborative Council (WSSCC) in Geneva, which is better known globally for its WASH (Water, Sanitation & Hygiene for All) campaign. This was published in February 2004. If you go to the WSSSC website and look up publications :, you can go to 2004 and click on the 81-page document titled "Listening".

In the run-up to SACOSAN , the third South Asian conference on water & sanitation, in Delhi November 16-21, 2008 -- the India WASH Forum proposes to bring out a South Asian version of this international document, provisionally titled "Asia Listening". While the earlier articles were written by NGO leaders and sanitation experts, the idea this time is to bring out independent and objective assessments by journalists on the progress, or lack of it, in this vital sector.

The idea is to publish some 20 articles on successes and failures in the sanitation sector in South Asian countries. You could even do one of each in your country. This could deal with the success or failure of a particular movement, or NGO, or government programme, or international initiative. It could focus on the individual or organization or both. It would have to quote persons concerned and, unless distances rule this out, visits to sites.

Once you clear the subject with me, and receive the go-ahead, you can send me a 2000-word article by August 30, 2008, for which you will be paid INR 5000 on final acceptance. We would require five or six pix, out of which we would choose two or three, as jpg files, for which we would pay Rs 250 per pic.

Interested Journalists who want to contribute to the document can contact Darryl D'Monte at
