The Strategic Advisory Group (SAG)

The Global WASH Cluster Strategic Advisory Group is made up of seven agencies, UNICEF, one other UN agency, one international agency, 3 NGOs and 1 agency or individual representing the roll out of cluster activities at a regional or country level. Membership of this group revolves on a yearly basis by vote of the wider WASH cluster.

For 2017-2018, besides UNICEF, NCA (Norwegian Church Aid), Welthungerhilfe and Solidarités International are the full members and RedR is the associate member. The SAG is also comprising an individual from the Palestinian Water Authority coordinating the WASH Sector.

The Global WASH Cluster Advisory Group is responsible for the following:

  • Review and approve charter/statement of principles (which would include what each level of membership engagement should be)
  • Review and endorse global WASH cluster strategy
  • Advise on global WASH cluster priorities
  • It is not foreseen that the Advisory Group would need to function as a funding allocation committee, but in the unlikely event that such decisions are required, the AG would make recommendations to the holder of collective resources.
  • Establish Project Steering Groups to work on identified priorities
  • Support CAST in its role of  monitoring  and oversight of  Project Steering Groups
  • Review and approve annual work plan, and agree amendment to these work plans as necessary during the course of the year
  • Members (agencies) of the advisory group will commit to participation in communication (routinely electronically and to face to face periodically) and functioning of the group
  • Comments on/input into key strategy, advocacy and fund-raising documents
  • Review and endorse the global WASH cluster annual report
