The WASH Alliance International, Plan Netherlands and SNV together formed the WASH SDG Consortium. Jointly they have developed a WASH SDG Programme, which is being implemented in Bangladesh, Ethiopia, Indonesia, Nepal, Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia.
The WASH SDG programme aims to sustainably improve access to, and use of, safe drinking water for at least 450,000 people, sanitation for at least 2 million people and improve the hygiene behaviours of 1.6 million people before the end of 2022. The programme had an expected outreach of almost 9 million people.
Sustainably improving access to and use of water, sanitation and improving hygiene behaviours.
Access for all
Reaching universal coverage, introducing new ways of thinking about how equity and processes of exclusion are addressed in the sector and gender equality can be guaranteed.
Private sector engagement
The consortium promotes and supports a system of affordable supply and services through a mix of market-based and community-based solutions, including access to credit.
A systems change approach
The sustainability of water/sanitation/hygiene (WASH) services depends on the institutional and financial system the services are embedded in. This is not merely the market environment, government organisations and socio-cultural setting, but the checks and balances in that system and how different levels interconnect.
Our activities promoting water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH)
WASTE has been part of the WASH Alliance International since the very beginning in 2012. As part of this WASH SDG programme, WASTE is responsible for implementing the Diamond Model in Bangladesh, Nepal, Ethiopia and Tanzania.
This means our activities focus on the development of sustained financing, demand and supply and a business enabling environment, providing a basis for the sustainable development of these systems once the programme is closed.
"I thank WASTE for their great training, we have learnt a lot about plastic recycling and new business opportunities. WASTE brings the right public to the table to really have an impact.”
The outputs from this project will be utilized in other WASTE projects.
This project was funded by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Netherlands (DGIS).
