Building around HWTS

Preparing an awareness-cum-fund raiser on child diarrhoea issues on Dutch public radio, the Netherlands Red Cross has this week brought together key WASH staff from eight colleague societies in Asia and Africa in their offices in The Hague.

Under a broad umbrella of ‘WASH and Resilience’, they reviewed latest evidence-based developments in WASH. A session on scaling-up HWTS was led by 300in6.

Among the hot topics discussed were durable output (such as the Dutch Government rule on service delivery for 10 years), refined record-keeping and the visible mitigation of financial risks. The hottest of all: how to modulate the organisational growth paths of existing success stories, from start-up to leadership, whilst maintaining the growth rates of HWTS adoption.
