The Dutch WASH Alliance aims to establish sustainable Water, Sanitation and Hygiene systems that can easily be replicated and scaled up. Within the domain of sanitation, we are creating a functioning WASH market and WASH public sector aiming to increase access to improved sanitation facilities. We support partner organisations that work on demand creation (amongst users); involve WASH entrepreneurs and financial institutions (a working private sector); and support the development of a working public sector. As an Alliance, this is what we refer to as “system change”. To realise system change, WASH Alliance partner WASTE has developed a unique approach called the Diamond Business Approach.

- Re: Theme II: Prioritising those most in need (Thematic Discussion on Sustainable Development Goals) - by: GrahamK September 2, 2015I would like to raise a fundamental question regarding sanitation though, it seems, applicable to most efforts to help “those most in need”. What does “Prioritising those most in need” really mean? For me we should be talkng about helping those on $1 a day or less but that does not seem to be the case – not really! So far as I can see help is no longer given […]
- Re: Theme IV: Safe versus basic sanitation (Thematic Discussion on Sustainable Development Goals) - by: joeturner September 2, 2015Lucy, the first pdf Eddy linked to above says: The proposed new core indicator of ‘percentage of population using safely managed sanitation services’ comprises three main elements: a basic sanitation facility (MDG ‘improved’ indicator) which is not shared, and where excreta are safely disposed in situ or transported and treated off-site. So it appears that s […]
