The South Asian Conference on Sanitation (SACOSAN) is a government-led biennial convention to provide a platform for interaction on sanitation.

Two years after the successful completion of SACOSAN-VI, SACOSAN-VII is scheduled to be organized in February/ March 2018 in Pakistan. This will be first proper regional opportunity after the adaptation of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of UN members’ states. 

SACOSAN-VII intends to provide an opportunity to reflect upon the SDGs and set new direction of sanitation discourse in the region.
