Rural Sanitation at Scale - Ongoing Free online course

The course, entitled ‘Rural Sanitation at Scale’, which is featured as a unit in WEDC's master’s (MSc) programme, is offered free-of-charge as a non-accredited professional development unit for sector professionals interested in learning more about the issues of scaling-up sanitation in rural areas. It can be accessed once you are activated. Please note, however, that activation will not take place during weekends or when the University is closed.

The course is divided into three parts:

Part 1 – Lays out the challenge of scaling up rural sanitation in context, examining fundamental aspects of sanitation provision and the reasons why, upto now, the goal of sanitation at scale has proved elusive.

Part 2 – Examines the core theory of change for sustainable programmes. In particular it looks at the first two, of three, key components or pillars required for change: the creation of demand and the supply chain.

Part 3 – Continues to explore the core theory of change, focusing on the enabling environment. The unit concludes with a discussion of how the three pillars fit together and what steps are necessary to take an at-scale programme forward.

Each section takes approximately 1 hour of study time, excluding associated reading, and is delivered using a variety of media including slide presentations, film clips, animations, photography and graphics supported by selected online publications.
