There is growing interest among WASH sector actors to explore new approaches to attain universal access to WASH services by 2030. Water For People has been supporting Kamwenge District local government in Western Uganda to introduce the Everyone Forever strategy so that it becomes a nationally accepted and approved mechanism for ensuring the provision of water and sanitation services to everyone – every community, every clinic, every school, everyone, and forever. Part of the strategy is to support the development of a WASH District Investment Plan to understand what is required to reach everyone in Kamwenge. The Ministry of Water and Environment has taken on this strategy to understand what it takes to reach 14 of the least served districts in Uganda and later on expand countrywide. This briefing paper presents findings from Kamwenge District.
