Opinion and analysis around our policy, practice and advocacy work. Join the conversation.
Kate Ferguson, PMER Training and Capacity Development Manager, explains how WaterAid changed the face of its programming system to improve how we think about, manage and feed back on our work.
Our report shows that collaboration between business and the water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) sector could drive substantial progress towards reaching everyone, everywhere with taps and toilets by 2030. Ruth Romer, Private Sector Advisor at WaterAid, introduces the potential it found.
Robyn Waite, formerly a WaterAid Policy Officer, is a doctoral student with the School of Oriental and African Studies at the University of London. Here she explains her research project, which she is currently conducting at WaterAid: ‘Towards an understanding of non-governmental development organisations’ moral legitimacy and applied ethics’.
The expansion of the Monitoring and Evaluation section of our policy, practice and advocacy site mirrors the evolution of how WaterAid monitors its work. As our priorities shift to include more advocacy, sector strengthening, human rights, and sector integration, so too must our evaluative work adjust and adapt. But should we be looking at full impact evaluation? Liza Tong, Programme Manager for Accountability and Effetiveness at WaterAid UK, discusses.
Collaboration is one of WaterAid’s core values, and we know we can only hope to achieve our aims and vision of universal access to water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) by living this value. Louisa Gosling, WaterAid’s Quality Programmes Manager, shares how we re-assessed the quality of our partnerships, and what we have learned about keeping relationships healthy.
