Sustainable sanitation - a new district road map from Agenda For Change

May 7, 2021

In 2017, several Agenda for Change members developed a district-level roadmap for universal access to sustainable WASH services; though, the approaches and tools included did not fully reflect the important differences between the water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) sectors. The current sanitation roadmap was developed to address this gap by presenting guidance, available tools, and case studies from some Agenda for Change members focused on how these steps or tools have been applied across different countries, with a specific focus on sanitation services.

This roadmap is based on primary and secondary sources of information such as reports, workshops, and interviews with some Agenda for Change members. It builds on the work carried out by other WASH organizations such as Plan International and UNICEF.

The document has the following objectives:

  • Describing the scope and main differences between water and sanitation services (and associated planning);
  • Presenting the step-by-step process of developing a WASH district roadmap focusing on sanitation service delivery;
  • Presenting examples of some Agenda for Change members’ district wide approaches to sanitation services, gathered through a set of interviews;
  • Providing a list of useful resources for sanitation services.

Julia Boulenouar from the Aguaconsult team was one of the primary authors of the roadmap.
