Background
West Africa is experiencing a deepening cycle of chronic poverty, whose roots lie in a number of complex issues. In many ways, West Africa's crisis is a crisis of decreasing livelihoods options and decreasing food security. Other issues also play their part, including cyclical drought, floods and disease outbreaks, which further undermine people's capacity.
WASH has a major role to play in addressing issues of food security, livelihoods and emergencies. To date Oxfam in West Africa has had a moderately sized WASH program in the region. However we now have an opportunity to increase the scale of our WASH work, and more importantly to increase the impact of the program, by ensuring that it is structured to most appropriately respond to the real underlying problems and to ensure that it integrates more effectively with other existing programs.
Oxfam's WASH work in West Africa also includes using water for livelihoods - including water harvesting and appropriate irrigation. We also aim to build on approaches to WASH that can lead to risk reduction in regard to potential emergencies in the region.
Oxfam in West Africa is seeking to have a much more significant impact in the region through its WASH Work. This is an opportunity to lead on the process of change required to help Oxfam achieve this aspiration.
