Are you a practitioner or theoretician of water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) systems or the application of systems approaches to WASH? IRC in collaboration with several partners will be hosting a major symposium on building and strengthening strong systems to deliver safe and sustainable WASH services for everyone. The WASH systems symposium “All systems go!” will be held from 12-14 March 2019 in The Hague, the Netherlands.
The symposium will bring together systems thinkers and do-ers, from within and WASH sector to share our understanding of how systems approaches can help build sustainable and expanded WASH services around the world. We seek to stimulate more holistic thinking to help reveal opportunities for systemic change in the WASH sector. A primary objective is the identification of the current state-of-the-art thinking and experiences in WASH systems, the development of skills and tools for moving from theory to implementation of systems approaches, an elaboration of a shared agenda for taking the learning forward.
