The WASH Alliance International stands for a shift from hardware-construction approach towards a sustainable service delivery & sector development approach.
Theory of Change
We aim to provide full coverage with sustainable WASH services for all in the areas where we work. To reach this ambition, we use a unique Theory of Change that is built upon three integrated pillars:
- Developing a functioning and enabling WASH market, in which the private sector is providing quality products and services at an affordable price.
- Developing an enabling public sector for WASH, in which the government takes up its responsibility as duty bearer and creates supportive policies and regulations for sustainable WASH services.
- Empower, inform and organize citizens for sustainable WASH: informed citizens will demand sustainable WASH services and practice healthy hygienic behaviour; organised citizens will enforce high quality WASH services from the market; and empowered citizens hold the government accountable for taking up their role as duty bearer.
All members of the WASH Alliance have a crucial role to play in the development of the three pillars, to facilitate cooperation between the three pillars and stimulate that the three pillars are built in a sustainable way.
