Concern’s technical brief on “How to better link WASH and nutrition programmes”

Dear all,
Please see in attachment, or see this link: www.concern.net/resources/how-better-lin...nutrition-programmes (or direct link to pdf file: www.concern.net/sites/default/files/medi...ition_programmes.pdf ).

This document aims at providing a concise summary of the main scientific facts from international literature as well as some practical ideas for both WASH and nutrition teams that wish to develop activities in between the two sectors.
Any feedback, critic and/or other ideas are welcome.
Please share as widely as possible.
Amicalement.
Franck Flachenberg & Regine Kopplow (respectively WASH and nutrition advisors)

Franck

Many thanks for sharing this. Would it be ok to convert this to a pdf and post on the WASHplus WASH and Nutrition Library at: blogs.washplus.org/washnutrition/

Best regards,

Re: Concern’s technical brief on “How to better link WASH and nutrition programmes”

I agree, a .pdf would be nice as the .docx doesn't open 100% correctly on many Word versions and Libre Office etc.

From what I can tell from a quick look the focus seems more on including WASH in nutrition programmes and less the other way around. Maybe the common theme of house-hold hygiene and the various related interventions could be brought out more prominently.

Re: Concern’s technical brief on “How to better link WASH and nutrition programmes”

Dear Frank and Regine,

Thanks for sharing with us this great development.

My only comment (or wish) to you and your colleagues, which is not a criticism on your paper:
If going for R&D's (Research and Development), please keep your results short and simple (plain English: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plain_English; www.plainenglish.co.uk/ ).

R&D tend to fly high and higher and often lost in increasing complexities (over-engineered), leaving behind the future "users" of R&D results. Then being surprised about rejection of very important work done.

In short, please try to keep everything as concrete and tangible as possible.

Good Luck and Happiness with your work,

Detlef

This is very helpful - and a handy document for programme implementers and planners - would like to know more about the process followed to come out with this manual. I work with WaterAid in India and we are trying to develop something along these lines here in India. So your ideas and suggestions will help. Thanks and regards sweta
