STREAMS is an autonomous, self-sustained, recognized
and credible leader organization of resource centres, uniquely positioned
locally and globally and effective in capacitating the sector in
supporting the development of pro-poor policies for the sustainable
implementation of water, sanitation, health and hygiene. STREAMS
is composed of a growing number of strategically located Resource
Centres which are also independent formal organizations responsible
for their own operations but effectively joined together through
its vision, mission, objectives and strategies. The different partners
that make up the STREAMS coalition are all uniquely positioned in
their respective countries where many, if not all, are directly
influential at national level policy making processes and local
level capacity building, implementation and fund flows.
NGO Forum, through its NRC, has been in active collaboration with
STREAMS by participating in their different knowledge management
and capacity building activities and events on water supply, sanitation
and hygiene issues. Both STREAMS and NGO Forum have also jointly
organized events for information and knowledge sharing on a wide
variety of topics related water supply, sanitation and hygiene.
These have created close tie and firm commitment between STREAMS
and NGO Forum to work hand in hand for ensuring sustainable water,
sanitation and hygiene programme for the poor and vulnerable children,
women and men.

- International Water and Sanitation Centre (IRC), Netherlands
Founded in 1968, the International Water and Sanitation
Centre (IRC) has been focusing on sharing, promotion and use of
knowledge around the world. IRC facilitates this process underling
the importance that utilization of effective and proper knowledge
and information by governments, professionals and organizations
can better support poor men, women and children in developing countries
to obtain water and sanitation services they will use and maintain.
Over the years IRC has been able to build a strong linkage with
a wide range of partner organizations around the globe.
Being associated with the IRC ever since it was established, the
NRC has greatly been benefitted from different types of support
from IRC over the years and has built an amiable working relationship
with them. IRC has supported the NRC in building up its capacity
in various forms and also helped in developing and undertaking appropriate
products and services leading to play a momentous role as resource
centre in the WatSan sector of Bangladesh.

- Sustainable Sanitation Alliance (SuSanA)
The Sustainable Sanitation Alliance (SuSanA) is
an informal network of organisations who share a common vision on
sustainable sanitation. SuSanA came into existence in early 2007
and works as a coordination platform, working platform, sounding
board, contributor to the policy dialogue on sustainable sanitation
and as a "catalyst". At the present time, the secretariat
function is carried out by GIZ (German International Cooperation)
and the current number of partners is 176.
The NRC has partnered with SuSanA to improve our knowledge sharing
capacity and network across the sector as well as to provide another
avenue for learning for our NGO Forum staff and stakeholders. The
SuSanA network is open to not only organizations related to the
sector but also to individuals wishing to join in on the conversation
and we encourage all to participate in this knowledge sharing opportunity.
