Topics for Plenary session focused on (1) Evaluation of the achievement of sanitation after The Manila Declaration; (2) Findings of East Asia regional status report on sanitation and hygiene; and (3) Sanitation for All: Toward 2015 and Beyond. Main topics of country contribution in parallel session focused on (1) Awareness: Community and Political Awareness, Hygiene Communication and School Sanitation; (2) Sanitation Development: Resource mobilization and institutional arrangement /policy, Knowledge product and technology and Urban Sanitation; and (3) Emergency: Natural Disaster: Preparedness, Response and Post Response, Non Natural Disaster: Preparedness, Response and Post Response and WASH Adaptation to Climate Change.

Viet Nam delegation was headed by Dr. Nguyen HuyNga, General Director of Viet Nam Health Environment Management Agency (VIHEMA, MOH) .The delegation consists of Dr. Nguyen HuyNga, Mr. Nguyen Tuong Van, Deputy Director of Infrastructure Department, MOC, Ms. Ha Thanh Hang, Deputy Director of Water Department and Head of Standing Office of National Target Program of RWSS, MARD, Mr. Dau Xuan Canh, Deputy Director of Social Affairs Department of Government Office.

Viet Nam contributed one presentation of country profile at the plenary session on the first day and three presentations at parallel sessions on the second day: one is about urban sanitation planning, one hand washing initiative and scaling up; and one sanitation plan within RWSS NTP3. All were well received by other participants. Viet Nam delegates participated in the visit to a Rural Waste Water Treatment Project and to a CLTS community.

In the region, Viet Nam is one of few countries, who has achieved MDG sanitation targets and an exceptional country acknowledged with much progress in increasing sanitation coverage among all quintiles including the poorest one, according to JMP. However, a big gap remains between urban and rural and the richest and the poorest quintile. Viet Nam still has 6% of population, who practices open defecation. However, Viet Nam does not indicate officially time bound for achieving open defecation free status in its WASH strategy, NTP and presentations at the Conference while some other countries do so, such as Cambodia announcing its target to achieve it by 2026 and Indonesia by 2023 at EASAN.

At the end of the second day of EASAN,Delegation Heads of all 13 participating countries jointly signed a declaration, showing country determination to partner in solving problem of open defecation and achieve sanitation for all.

On the way back to Viet Nam, the delegation understood that still a lot needs to be done in Viet Nam for equitable access to improved sanitation for all.
