Stakeholder-Driven Factor Mapping for WASH Systems

The Sustainable WASH Systems Learning Partnership (SWS) is piloting factor mapping workshops to improve stakeholders’ understanding of complex WASH systems and align their perspectives on the key components and the interactions between them that lead to improved service delivery outcomes. Factor mapping is a type of focus group activity that enables participants to visually represent the interactions between different factors in a system.

Cambodia Investor Landscape Assessment Report

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene Finance (WASH-FIN) project seeks to close financing gaps to achieve universal access to water and sanitation services through sustainable and creditworthy business models, increased public funding, and expanded market finance for infrastructure investment. A large financing gap exists in the  Cambodian water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) sector; the private sector has been identified as a key player in bridging this gap. 

Summary

Cambodia Integrated Nutrition, Hygiene, and Sanitation Project (NOURISH) Impact Evaluation

Despite strong economic growth and rising living standards in the last two decades, high levels of undernutrition persist in Cambodia. Tackling childhood undernutrition requires a broad range of ‘nutrition specific’ and ‘nutrition sensitive’ interventions that act to ensure adequate dietary intake and address the multiple underlying or enabling determinants. However, when rigorously evaluated, interventions to improve dietary intake alone have not been successful in reducing stunting.

Determining the Effectiveness and Mode of Operation of Community-Led Total Sanitation: The DEMO-CLTS study

Globally, 2.3 billion people lack access to safe sanitation services and 892 million people practice open defecation, which poses a dramatic threat to public health. Community-Led Total Sanitation (CLTS) aims at eliminating open defecation by applying participatory activities that engage entire communities. CLTS has shown to be successful in eradicating open defecation, however, results remain diverse and in-depth understanding of CLTS’ mechanisms is still lacking. This study from RanasMosler tries to close this research gap.
