Understanding the Network that Sustains Rural Water Services in Uganda’s Kabarole District

This research brief presents findings from a network analysis of stakeholder relationships affecting rural water service sustainability in Kabarole District, Uganda. The USAID-funded Sustainable WASH Systems Learning Partnership (SWS), with support from IRC, is bringing stakeholders together in a Learning Alliance – a platform for stakeholders involved in water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) service delivery and engaged in testing and learning about methods for improving and sustaining it. With the findings from the network analysis, the Learning Alliance can identify which actors have ties to different parts of the network and make recommendations on how these actors can be engaged to improve coordination and alignment around the vision for WASH services in Kabarole District.
