Staff announcement: Paul Shanahan joins SWA as Acting Coordinator of the SWA secretariat

14 Nov, 2014

We are pleased to announce that Paul Shanahan has joined SWA as Acting Coordinator of the SWA secretariat until June 2015, when we expect the permanent Coordinator to be in place.

Paul brings to SWA a 40 years’ experience in WASH, spanning government, non-government, private and humanitarian sectors. He most recently held the position of the Inter Agency Standing Committee WASH Cluster Coordinator (based in UNICEF in Geneva), where he was responsible to ensure coordination between all actors on humanitarian WASH response.

Paul will replace Cindy Kushner who has begun her position as WASH Senior Adviser on partnerships and global initiatives at UNICEF HQ.
