This report provides a synthesis and summary of the Southern Africa Regional Learning Event held in Harare, Zimbabwe by the Civil Society Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Fund (CS WASH) from 5–8 May 2015.
The purpose of the report is to be a useful reference for practitioners and managers across the civil society organisations (CSOs) operating under the Fund, as well as local governments and other water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) actors who are together working to deliver sustainable WASH services. It aims to capture the key content delivered by experts at the event: a synopsis of WASH governance in Southern Africa; insights into WASH monitoring and financing; and harmonisation between donors and coordination of CSO initiatives. The work of participating CSOs across specific thematic areas, how they work with local government and lessons to share are recorded here, all of which highlight successes and common challenges. It is hoped that the report will serve as a record of deliberations for participants, and also as a resource for the broader WASH sector wherever similar challenges are faced.
