Mid-Term Review of WSSCC's Medium-Term Strategic Plan 2012-2016 - Executive Summary

WSSCC General
In 2015, the WSSCC commissioned a Mid-Term Review (MTR) of its Medium-Term Strategic Plan (MTSP) 2012-16 to assess its progress against intended results in the MTSP. The MTR was designed to contribute to organisational learning as well as to meet the accountability requirements of WSSCC’s Steering Committee and donors. The MTR covers the period 2012-2014, with additional analysis of progress made as part of the 2015-2016 Biennial Work Plan up to February 2016. The review was undertaken by IFMR LEAD and managed for quality assurance by the International Initiative for Impact Evaluation (3ie) under the 3ie Sanitation and Hygiene Thematic Window.WSSCC has issued a Management Response to the recommendations in the review, with a comprehensive internal response plan developed for each recommendation, under the headings of Programme Strategy, Monitoring and Evaluation and Governance.

Local governance and sanitation: Eight lessons from Uganda

Global Sanitation Fund
Many non-governmental and intergovernmental organizations, as well as bilateral and multilateral donors, recognize the importance of closely working with governments in sanitation and hygiene programmes. Collective behaviour change approaches, such as Community-Led Total Sanitation (CLTS), are also increasingly being embraced by governments as an alternative to traditional subsidy and enforcement-based approaches. This ‘GSF in focus’ case study presents eight lessons learned from the GSF-supported Uganda Sanitation Fund (USF) in coordinating, planning, and implementing CLTS at scale through a decentralized government system. The USF is the largest programme of its kind in Uganda. The programme, which began in 2011, is currently implemented by 30 District Local Governments under the overall management of the Ministry of Health. By September 2016, the USF reported helping over three million people live in open defecation free (ODF) environments.De nombreuses organisations non gouvernementales et intergouvernementales, ainsi que des donateurs bilatéraux et multilatéraux, reconnaissent l’importance de travailler en étroite collaboration avec les gouvernements dans le cadre des programmes d’assainissement et d’hygiène. Des approches collectives en matière de changement de comportement, telles que l’ATPC, sont de plus en plus adoptées par les gouvernements comme une alternative aux démarches traditionnelles axées sur les subventions et la répression. Cette étude de cas intitulée « Gros plan sur le GSF » présente huit enseignements tirés du programme du Fonds ougandais pour l’assainissement (USF) soutenu par le Fonds mondial pour l’assainissement (GSF) dans le cadre de la coordination, de la planification et de la mise en oeuvre de l’ATPC à grande échelle1 par l’intermédiaire d’un système administratif décentralisé. L’USF est le programme le plus important de ce genre en Ouganda. Débuté en 2011, il est actuellement mis en oeuvre par 30 gouvernements locaux de district2 sous la supervision du ministère de la Santé. En septembre 2016, l’USF a indiqué avoir aidé plus de trois millions de personnes à vivre dans un environnement exempt de défécation à l’air libre.

Value for Money Study in Global Sanitation Fund Programmes – Synthesis Report

Global Sanitation Fund
With maturing programmes and results steadily growing, the GSF is not only interested in the real cost of reaching results, but also in deepening its understanding of resources invested by communities, governments, and other partners. This is critical in further developing a model for scaling up sanitation and hygiene. With these aspects in mind, a multi-country value for money study was commissioned by the GSF in 2015, and carried out by Oxford Policy Management. This synthesis report explores the methodology and findings from the study. Moreover, it provides recommendations on the methodology which the GSF can utilize to track better value for money aspects within supported programmes.

Gender and CLTS - CLTS engagement, outcomes and empowerment in Malagasy communities

Global Sanitation Fund
In order to better understand the link between gender dynamics and the impact of its Community-Led Total Sanitation (CLTS) interventions, the GSF supported a study in a small number of communities in Madagascar in 2015. These communities are in the area covered by the GSF-supported programme in Madagascar, known locally as ‘Fonds d’Appui pour l’Assainissement’ (FAA). This ‘GSF in focus’ case study highlights and reflects on the study.Cette étude examine le lien entre la dynamique du genre et l’initiative d’assainissement total piloté par la communauté (ATPC) dans un petit nombre de communautés malgaches.

A gender case study of the experience and outcomes of FAA CLTS interventions in Madagascar

Global Sanitation Fund
This study explores the role that gender plays in shaping the experience and outcomes of the Fonds D’Appui pour l’assainissement (FAA) Community-led Total Sanitation (CLTS) interventions in Madagascar. Through a qualitative study in four villages in the Itasy region, this study finds that there is a difference in the way women and men actively engage in the CLTS process. Despite this, it finds that gender does not prevent people from realizing the benefits of sanitation and indeed some empowerment outcomes including increased respect, new roles for women and improved voice in the community around sanitation. However, the ability to contribute to decision-making and change gender stereotypes around roles and responsibilities, such as for cleaning and maintaining the toilet, raises questions for women and men’s long-term sanitation facilities and behaviours.

Best Practices of the Joint Programme on Gender, Hygiene and Sanitation

Equality
The Joint Programme on Gender, Hygiene and Sanitation is designed and implemented by the Water Supply and Sanitation Collaborative Council (WSSCC) and the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (UN Women) in West and Central Africa. The Programme supports governments in the formulation of evidence based and inclusive policies that address the fulfilment of women’s and girls’ human rights to water and sanitation. One of the approaches of the programme is the training of trainers’ workshop for government officers who will act as agents of change and play a catalytic role in transforming sanitation, health and education policies to include women’s and girls’ rights. Over the last few years, the interconnectivity of sanitation with other sectors has become more and more evident. To achieve sanitation and hygiene for all, everywhere, it is critical to collaborate with other sectors, to develop new tools, systems and mechanisms for the delivery of WASH services in schools, markets, work places, public spaces, etc. After two years of implementation, the Joint Programme has contributed to filling knowledge gaps on sanitation and hygiene for women and girls living in West and Central Africa.Bonnes pratiques du programme conjoint genre hygiène et assainissement: Le Programme Conjoint Genre, Hygiène et Assainissement a été conçu et est mis en oeuvre par le Conseil de concertation pour l’approvisionnement en eau et l’assainissement (WSSCC) et l’Entité des Nations Unies pour l’égalité des sexes et l’autonomisation des femmes (ONU Femmes) en Afrique de l’Ouest et du Centre. Ce Programme appuie les gouvernements pour la formulation de politiques inclusives basées sur les résultats de la recherche, en faveur de l’exercice des droits humains des femmes et des filles à l’eau et à l’assainissement. Une des approches de ce programme est la formation des formateurs destinée prioritairement aux fonctionnaires gouvernementaux qui serviront d’agents de changement et qui joueront un rôle catalytique dans la transformation des politiques en matière d’assainissement, de santé et d’éducation pour y inclure les droits des femmes et des filles. Ces dernières années, l’interconnexion de l’assainissement avec les autres secteurs est devenue de plus en plus évidente. Pour que l’hygiène et l’assainissement concernent tout un chacun, partout, il est indispensable de collaborer avec d’autres secteurs et d’élaborer de nouveaux outils, systèmes et mécanismes qui apporteront les services WASH dans les écoles, sur les marchés, sur les lieux de travail, dans les lieux publics, etc Au bout de deux années de mise en œuvre, le Programme conjoint a contribué à combler les lacunes dans la connaissance de l’hygiène et de l’assainissement pour les femmes et les filles vivant en Afrique de l’Ouest et du Centre.
