WSUP & WASHplus – Working within and around challenging institutional frameworks

July 28, 2014 · 0 comments

Regardless of the setting, the local institutional framework for water and sanitation services will have a huge impact on the design and effectiveness of a WASH programme. These frameworks are not always functioning well, so the implementing organisation must answer some basic questions: who has the mandate to provide these services and how can we help them? What is the regulatory framework and which services does it cover? What are the bottlenecks to change?

In many cases, creative thinking is required to find solutions and provide essential services that comply with regulations. Drawing upon case studies from WSUP and the USAID-funded WASHplus project, this webinar explores how service provision can be improved in contexts with less-than-perfect institutional frameworks.
