Getting WASH on the Policy Agenda – What do we need?  Three Films, A Passion, and Analysis

Connell Foley of Concern Worldwide similarly emphasised a need for stronger leadership in WASH. He noted that water and sanitation are included in Concern’s strategic plan, but that they have yet to see the level of positive results desired. Policy prioritisation of the issue will be essential for improvement, but what action is necessary to push WASH up on the agenda? WASH needs to be efficiently implemented at the local organization level. Foley noted additional obstacles to these programmes, including the particular difficulty of trying to change peoples’ behaviours. Foley suggested addressing policy challenges through strategic advocacy efforts, rigorous evidence in programming, and emotional engagement with the issue of water.
