CWS water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) teams from Cambodia, Indonesia, Myanmar, Timor-Leste and Vietnam, together with colleagues from Cambodia’s WASH SDO and Canada’s CAWST met in Siem Reap, Cambodia in early December to share successes, challenges, learning and ideas from the past year across Southeast Asia. The learning exchange was organized by Vietnam and Cambodia Country Representatives, Ngo Quoc Dung (second from the left in the front row of the photo below) and Mao Sophal (on the far right in the front row), and it is being hosted by the Cambodia team and our local government partners in Preah Vihear Province in north central Cambodia. Last year’s inaugural WASH LEX was hosted by the Myanmar team in Yangon with a field trip to communities in Maubin Township of Ayeyarwaddy Region. An interim virtual LEX was held in May, but all team members agree that there is nothing better than being together in person to celebrate successes and talk about shared challenges.
