Water Currents: WASH and the Systems Approach – Water Currents, July 10, 2018.
The USAID Sustainable WASH Systems Learning Partnership (SWS) prepared this special issue of Water Currents focusing on systems approaches, which seek to understand the complexity, interactions, and interdependencies between actors and factors involved in water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH).
Actions are implemented based on this understanding and have the flexibility to adapt to feedback and changing conditions.
The purpose of SWS is to test new ideas, approaches, and tools to overcome barriers for improving WASH service sustainability via systems approaches. Additional information about SWS activities can be found on the SWS website.
Reports and webinars featured in this issue are from SWS and its consortium members, as well as the World Bank, USAID, and others.
