DATE Tuesday 17 July, 2018 From 3:00pm to 5:00pm

VENUE Millennium Hilton Hotel - Manhattan Conference Room East 44th St. between 1st and 2nd Ave. New York, NY

PURPOSE

Share the informed and engaged societies strategies that have reduced poverty levels by 86% and murder levels by 85% in the city of Medellín, Colombia.

Share UNICEF experience with participatory behavior change strategies to mobilize communities to build their own toilets and stop open defecation that led to increased access to toilets and improved child growth in the Mali context1 as well as recent findings on the importance of fidelity and adherence for health impacts in WASH in school interventions2.

Discuss and debate enhancing the role and contribution of social change, behavior change, informed and engaged societies strategies for more effective and quicker progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals.

FOCUS

Accelerated progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals requires: demonstrated impact as the basis for agreeing effective strategies and understanding key challenges; proven initiatives that show a way forward; and the ability to engage people across all populations as key actors (perhaps the key actors) for progress.

CITIES (SDG 11)

Medellín provides an outstanding impact and learning example. The achievements include: 86% reduction in poverty; and, 95% reduction in murders. How this city - people in their barrios, business, civil society, municipal, state and national government policies and programmes – worked in difficult circumstances and a sensitive context to create these achievements is a compelling and instructive story. From his different vantage points – planning the initial strategy, running one of Colombia's largest businesses, strategic planning of transport infrastructure, development planning in some of the most difficult contexts and being active in the Colombian political process - Federico Restrepo brings a unique insight into what worked and why.

WATER AND SANITATION (SDG 6)

The world made gigantic strides in water and sanitation in the last 25 years. During the MDG period it was estimated that the use of improved drinking water sources rose from 76% to 91%, while the use of improved sanitation facilities rose from 54% to 68%3. But even with these gains, there remains unfinished business. It is reported by the WHO and UNICEF that 892 million people still practice open defecation and 844 million people still lacked even a basic drinking war service. For the first time, handwashing was being reported, but data was only available from 70 countries and was not too promising with availability of soap and water as low as 15% in sub-Saharan Africa and at best 76% in Western Asia4. Lessons on what worked, what didn't work and the critical role of social and behavior change approaches in UNICEF's WASH programmes will be highlighted. How these lessons are shaping UNICEF programming in the strategic plan will be shared through country examples in Mali, Philippines and Guatemala.

PARTNERSHIPS (SDG 17)

All of this work has taken place through extensive partnerships. The Global Alliance is itself a recent example of partnership building.

About Warren Feek

Warren Feek Name: Warren Feek Organisation: The Communication Initiative
Role: Executive Director
Country: New Zealand

Warren Feek is Executive Director of The Communication Initiative Partnership, a network of 90,000 people using media and communication strategies to address priority local, national and international Development issues. That network has shared 36,000 knowledge summaries (link is for English only) and engaged in review, dialogue and debate for the purpose of advancing the scale, quality and impact of their work. The CI focus is across all Development issues, from Democracy and Governance to HIV/AIDS; the full spectrum of communication strategies, from entertainment-education to community engagement; and the range of media, from digital to local cultural forms. The CI has also been involved in research - most recently an extensive (3,500 interviews) look at the social dynamics that condition decision-making on health issues within households in some of the economically poorest communities in Northern Nigeria. Prior to conceiving and guiding The Communication Initiative, Warren led at UNICEF HQ in New York developing and implementing Health and HIV/AIDS communication strategies for those often very sensitive and difficult issues. He was recruited to UNICEF based on his work at The Commonwealth Secretariat at a time that organisation was focused on ending apartheid in South Africa and the transition to a democratic government. A New Zealander he commenced his work life designing and managing a mini-trail bike programme for the siblings of criminal offenders. Warren has a BA (Hons) in Political Science and Sociology from the University of Victoria in New Zealand where his post–grad focused on the decision of the Trade Union movement to create the Labour Party. Given the social dynamics in New Zealand at the time he left academia to be involved in a couple of social movements. He lives and works in Victoria BC, Canada with his partner and 3 children.
