Challenges to improving rural sanitation in Cambodia remain immense. New efforts and approaches are needed to achieve the country’s long-term vision for improvements in the sanitation sector, which includes sustainable access to sanitation services for all Cambodians.
As part of the USAID Sustainable WASH Systems (SWS) Learning Partnership, WaterSHED is supporting a locally led and owned approach to increase the sustainability of sanitation and hygiene services in rural Cambodia.
Through the innovative SWS Learning Partnership, USAID seeks to learn how to improve the sustainability of WASH services by using systems approaches.
There is a growing global water crisis that may increase disease, undermine economic growth, foster insecurity and state failure, and generally reduce the capacity of countries to advance priorities that support U.S. national interests. To address these challenges and contribute to a healthier, safer, and more prosperous world, the United States will work to support a water secure world where people have sustainable supplies of water of sufficient quantity and quality to meet human, economic, and ecosystem needs while managing risks from floods and droughts.
This webinar presents key findings from an evaluation of the long-term sustainability of the sanitation and hygiene components of the USAID-funded Madagascar RANO-HP activity. Implemented in 26 communes from 2009–2013, RANO-HP aimed to increase sustainable access to an improved water supply, and improve sanitation coverage and hygiene practices.
The Sustainable Water Partnership is proud to present Toolkit #1, a resource for working to improve water security. This is the first in a series of six toolkits which presents an effective and efficient process to address water risks, including long-term water stresses that constrain social and economic development and sudden shocks that can quickly ruin the health and livelihoods of vulnerable populations. It provides a brief introduction to water security, as well as a detailed walkthrough of SWP’s five-step Water Security Improvement (WSI) process.
