Reporting back from the 37th WEDC Conference in Hanoi- Day 1

It’s my 5th WEDC conference! This year the conference is in Hanoi, Vietnam co-hosted with the National University of Civil Engineering. WEDC Conference is a key international meeting attended by WASH policy and programme staff, academics, activists and experts. The papers will be available on-line shortly (www.wedc-knowledge.lboro.ac.uk) but in anticipation, here are some thoughts from the conference about the research and practice presented.

Always learning

East Asia and Pacific Regional Learning Event

We began the day reviewing the institutional factors that are key for scaling up capacity building, amongst which are government commitment and support to creating an enabling environment as well as partnerships between the stakeholders. In their country groups, participants discussed practical steps for capacity building at scale what was new for them from the previous day’s discussion as well as what is relevant to their contexts and what they would still like to know more about. 

Tipping the scale: ODF monitoring and sector capacity

East Asia and Pacific Regional Learning Event

Yesterday we heard how countries across the region are showing potential for scaling up through expanding successful pilot programmes, forming alliances to deliver WASH programmes, adding sanitation and hygiene initiatives to existing programmes as well as implementing at a larger scale. Today we discussed two particular aspects of sanitation and hygiene programmes that will make universal access more likely: ODF monitoring and sufficient capacity within the sector.

Reaching the poor and vulnerable: reporting from the East Asia and Pacific Regional Learning event

East Asia and Pacific Regional Learning Event

Today was the start of a three day Regional Learning event in Thailand on scaling up sanitation and hygiene for East Asia and Pacific, jointly organised by WSP, UNICEF, Plan International and WaterAid. Attending are over 60 participants from 8 countries in the region (PNG, Timor Leste, Vietnam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Myanmar, Philippines).

Successes and challenges in monitoring CLTS at scale: Views from an international workshop in Malawi

While Team GB was doing surprising well at securing medals in a number of “sitting down” sports at the London Olympics – such as equestrian events, sailing and rowing – I was in Malawi thinking about how to measure the performance of an altogether different kind of “sitting down” event.
