12. Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) for Development
Led by: Edith Kamundi, Program Officer, International WaterCentre
About the course
As we focus our attention on achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the global water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) burden has emerged as a development priority. 663 million people continue to live without basic access to water, 2.4 billion don’t have access to basic sanitation and a large proportion of the world’s population does not practise handwashing with water and soap. This course builds a case for why WASH is a development priority and outlines the fundamental principles and approaches for sustainable interventions in WASH for development.
Completion of this course will improve participants understanding and capacity to contribute towards:
- Managing health and social impacts arising from improved WASH services and facilities
- Addressing inequalities in access to WASH services
- Outlining strategies for integrating behaviour change into WASH activities
- Delivering strategies for sustainable WASH
Who should enrol?
The course is ideal for professionals working in civil society organisations, government agencies, international development donor agencies, the private sector, graduate students and consultants.
