Cross-country learning about innovative WASH cost and financing strategies for sustainability of WASH in schools
conference contributionposted on 2018-11-08, 13:42 authored by Lilian Linda, Sandra Van Soelen
The innovative cross-country ‘WASH & Learn Programme’ that Simavi implements in East Africa integrates different sustainability aspects in the use of Cost Recovery Planning and Risk Assessment/Mitigation tools to trigger WASH financing and investments in the sustainability of WASH infrastructure. Through this operational mix of sector tools and principles, results are becoming evident: Communities, schools and governments are working together to generate income, to grow local funds for WASH and especially for operation and maintenance of the WASH investment. The stakeholder engagement has scaled up from initial discussion to active involvement through public private partnerships, fostering the target group from beneficiaries to stakeholders.
