WSSCC and its partner the International Initiative for Impact Evaluation (3ie) are pleased to announce the publication of a new brief, Using a life-cycle approach to target WASH policies and programmes, and a short video. The new brief is based on a systematic review that looked at how the life-cycle approach is incorporated into WASH programmes and policies. This review analyzed dominant approaches to targeting populations, the barriers to access and strategies to improve access to WASH services.
The brief comes out of the Evidence Programme on Sanitation and Hygiene (EPSH), which is a a strategic partnership between WSSCC and 3ie. Formed in 2014, this partnership features two equally committed parties with vast expertise. As a global membership organization WSSCC embodies the values of collective spirit and solidarity, encouraging collaboration across the board while exercising leadership and bringing diverse voices together as one. By funding rigorous impact evaluations and systematic reviews and by making evidence accessible and useful to policymakers and practitioners, 3ie and WSSCC are helping to improve the lives of people living in poverty.
