The influence of real time learning in WASH programming
conference contributionposted on 12.02.2018, 15:11 by Angela Padilla, James Dumpert
In an effort to improve programme outcomes, particularly in ensuring sanitation for all, the Cambodia Rural Sanitation and Hygiene Improvement Programme (CRSHIP) has introduced tools to strengthen the programme’s ability to adjust interventions to the specific local conditions, priorities, and opportunities. In 2016, CRSHIP introduced Real Time Learning (RTL), providing an opportunity for continuous reflection and learning leading to context adaptive programming. Using RTL, programme partners are able to report on activities, invite feedback and request support, or offer insight reflecting their experiences. RTL is still an emerging practice with some challenges in implementation, including introducing adaptations throughout institutional arrangements, and limited quantitative findings to date, however current empirical evidence suggests it may carry significant potential to enhance knowledge management, quality of implementation, support inclusive and equitable programming, and expand the breadth and impact of programme works.
Appreciation goes also to the Global Sanitation Fund of the Water Supply and Sanitation Collaborative Council for the support to CRSHIP and specifically to the L&D grant.
