Le GSF vise à contribuer à l’accès universel à des services d’hygiène et d’assainissement adéquats, comme les imaginent les stratégies ou les feuilles de route nationales, et les objectifs de développement durable. Le Fonds tente d’y arriver en suscitant la création, la démonstration et la reproduction de modèles nationaux, axés sur les résultats, provoquant des changements de comportements sanitaires et hygiéniques durables et à grande échelle. Pour ce faire, il est prévu que les programmes passent par trois étapes distinctes, mais qui se chevauchent souvent largement : la conception, leur démonstration et la transition. La Réunion d'apprentissage a donné l’occasion aux programmes de pays de réfléchir à ces trois phases dans le contexte de leur pays. La présente publication est structurée de telle sorte qu’elle reflète ces thèmes et explore les discussions, réflexions et enseignements qui s’y rapportent.

Scoping and Diagnosis of the Global Sanitation Fund’s Approach to EQND

Global Sanitation Fund

In 2016, WSSCC’s Global Sanitation Fund (GSF) recruited an independent team of experts to undertake an in-depth two-part diagnosis of GSF’s approach to equality and non-discrimination (EQND). The first part of the diagnosis – an assessment comprising of visits to six countries (Ethiopia, Malawi, Nepal, Nigeria, Senegal and Togo) and a review of documentation across all GSF-supported programmes – was completed in 2017, resulting in this study. While confirming that many people who may be considered disadvantaged have benefitted positively from GSF-supported programmes, the study emphasizes that more proactive attention is needed to ensure no one is left behind. Several recommendations are offered to better integrate EQND throughout the components and stages of all GSF-supported programmes.Summarized version of the study, including the Executive Summary, selected case studies and GSF reflections.Cadrage et diagnostic de l’approche du Fonds mondial pour l’assainissement sur l’égalité et la non-discrimination: Résumé analytique, études de cas et réflexions.Annexes related to the study.

5 things you should learn from implementing a rural sanitation project in Cambodia

Global Sanitation Fund

The Cambodia Rural Sanitation and Hygiene Improvement Programme (CRSHIP), supported by the Global Sanitation Fund (GSF), works to increase sustained access to improved sanitation and promote good hygiene practices in rural communities. Plan International USA reviewed the programming experience within the Cambodia Rural Sanitation and Hygiene Improvement Program and developed this synthesis of insights, based on an array of programme and performance-related reports released during the first three years of the programme. This review is designed to assist local advocacy efforts to bring Community-Led Total Sanitation (CLTS) to scale and share emerging themes and lessons learned to date from programming experience of relevance to other implementing actors in the WASH sector.
