Unthinkable. Sanitation is a human right! 12. 3. Strategic orientation A few lessons learnt Investing in empowerment, involving local population including disadvantaged groups in the planning process increases the level of functionality of water supply schemes (functionality study, Nepal, 2011) Putting emphasis on understanding the determinants of behavior change helps design more effective behavior change interventions (e.g. use of Eawag RANAS behavior change model) Behavior change interventions are key in increasing the impact on health of water projects (hygiene, sanitation, safe storage, household water treatment) Rural sanitation: scaling up is a challenge, rather work at scale from the beginning (piloting at scale approaches) Improving sanitation in small towns requires specific approaches, which may be different from the ones applied in rural or densely populated urban areas) Water is a good entry point to improve local governance structures Creating income generating activities (e.g. through multi-use systems providing drinking and irrigation water) helps communities invest in maintaining and improving/extending their water supply systems 13. 3. Strategic orientation Safe water (household water treatment, safe storage, hygiene) Sanitation Drinking water supply Water for food IWRM 14. 3. Strategic orientation Water supply Sanitation Safe Water Treatment Safe Storage Hygiene Safe Water Household water treatment (SODIS, filtration, chlorination, boiling) Safe Storage (during transport and at home) Hygiene Education (personal, household and environment) Objectives Increase the health impact of WASH projects through integration of the Safe Water approach Promote solutions for unserved households (pro- poor/innovative approaches) Working principles National partner to facilitate scaling up (Ministry of Health) Private sector/supply chains (products and services to reach the poorest, financing mechanisms) Facilitate behaviour change Partnership with Eawag (SODIS) 15. 3. Strategic orientation Sanitation Focus on rural areas and small towns Key principles Creating demand (programmatic approaches such as CLTS) Developing a dynamic private sector (producing affordable latrines, sanimarts, business skills, competition) Appropriate policies Financing mechanisms (ODF incentives, cross-subsidies, etc.) Challenges Scaling up rural sanitation CLTS in schools (as part of a broader approach; linking with a community component for more effective taking up) Post-ODF monitoring and interventions (climbing up the ladder, SWM, etc.) Sanitation in small towns 16. 4. Selected key projects Kyrgyzstan Vietnam Laos Nepal Pakistan Afghanistan Mali Niger BeninBurkina Faso Ethiopia Tanzania Mosambique HatiGuatemala Nicaragua Bolivia Togo Senegal Bhutan Madagascar Bangladesh Honduras Water & sanitation in fragile states Clean water and healthy schools Rainwater harvesting Enhancing participation Water for healthy schools Blue schools Improving rural sanitation Supporting sanitation entrepreneurs Equitable use of water resources Improving transparency Improving rural sanitation More crops per drop More crops per drop Safe Water 17. Water and sanitation in fragile states Improving access to water supply and sanitation in fragile states the case of Haiti Improved access to water supply and sanitation Building capacity of the local actors (communities, water committees, local authorities, private sector, decentralized services) Improved sector policy 18.
