Rethinking Rural Sanitation - online course (UNICEF, WaterAid, Plan International UK, Open University) EN/FR

Check out the online course ‘Rethinking Rural Sanitation ’ developed in collaboration with WaterAid, UNICEF, Plan International UK and The Open University. Available in English and French.
 
Background
Over the past decades, rural sanitation programming has seen a shift from construction-driven approaches towards social mobilization and behavioural change approaches, and market-based approaches have gained momentum. While these innovations have been an important step forward, they present mixed outcomes, and have shown that applying a blueprint of single approaches across large areas, or even countries, does not work everywhere, all the time, and is simply not enough to reach everyone. A new way of thinking and planning for rural sanitation is needed to accelerate progress.
 
Creating the course
In response to the sanitation challenge, Plan International UK, UNICEF, and WaterAid have developed ‘Guidance on programming for Rural Sanitation’ . This ‘Rethinking Rural Sanitation’ course is based on the guidance and was developed through a collaborative design process with The Open University.
 
Key principles of the course
This course aims to describe a more flexible and adaptive way of thinking about programming so that rural sanitation programmes are more equitable, scalable and sustainable. To ensure accelerated,sustained progress at scale, the course emphasises that programme designs must be at area wide scale, responsive to local context and conditions, developed and delivered in partnership and balancing demand and supply interventions.
 
Who is the course for?
The course is relevant to many different roles such as local or national government officers, NGO country teams and partners, programme and project officers and others. Whatever your role in the WASH sector we hope that the course will be useful
to you.
