RG-T3712 : Sustainable and Innovative Rural Water, Sanitation and Hygiene - SIRWASH
Project Status: Implementation
The overall objective of SIRWASH (Sustainable and Innovative Rural Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene services) is to contribute to closing the gaps in coverage and quality of rural Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) services, which are socially acceptable, affordable and sustainable, thus contributing to fostering the necessary capacities and creating and enabling environment to make changes over time. The intervention will use a three-pronged approach of: 1) policy influencing, 2) innovation and 3) knowledge management with a strong focus on leveraging partnerships. The geographical intervention of SIRWAS is foreseen based on the presence of rural populations without or suffering from poor access to WASH services and the political will of the governments to close the gaps, in the perspective of "Leave no one behind". Activities will be executed at regional level, with emphasis in four Latin American countries (Peru, Bolivia, Brazil and Haiti).
