The Uganda WASH Alliance (UWA) was established in 2011 as a consortium of Dutch funded organisations in the Uganda WASH sector and strives to contribute to the goals of the Uganda government in terms of increased WASH coverage, improved use of WASH services, higher levels of sustainability and functionality of systems installed, and good WASH governance.
About WASH Alliance Uganda
The UWA programme consists of the Northern programme (implemented by AMREF Uganda, AFRST, Link To Progress) and the mid-Western (Rwenzori) programme (implemented by Rwenzori WASH Alliance consisting of HEWASA, JESE and EMESCO as implementing partners with SNV and PROTOS as technical support partners). At National level there is a “Support Programme” (implemented by UWASNET, NETWAS Uganda, NAWAD, USSIA and URWA) to support implementing partners in advocacy, learning, knowledge management, gender, business development, rainwater technology and policy formulation.
In addition to contributing to various WASH related goals of the Uganda government, UWA particularly seeks to facilitate improved system level performance of the WASH sector within prioritised geographical regions through introduction of innovative WASH solutions, knowledge management and collaborative WASH programming.
