CS WASH Fund Pacific Regional Learning Event

Civil Society Organisations working to deliver sustainable Water, Sanitation and Hygiene services in the Pacific

Approximately 90 representatives from Civil Society Organisations (CSOs), key change agents, local governments, donors and other stakeholders gathered at the Australian Aid-funded CS WASH Fund Pacific Regional Learning Event (PARLE) in November 2015 to explore how to best deliver sustainable WASH services in the region.

The key objectives of the event were to:

  1. Improve the effectiveness and sustainability of WASH projects within the Fund by facilitating knowledge exchange and learning;
  2. Strengthen relationships between CSOs, local government and other change agents to extend specific areas for collaboration and sharing; and
  3. Provide a forum to build the Pacific WASH community of practice within the Fund, and learn from and share with the wider WASH sector.

The Pacific context presents particular challenges to WASH service delivery as access to resources is constrained, communities and economies are geographically isolated and institutional capacity is typically low. Models and strategies for CSOs to strengthen and complement the WASH enabling environment, from various levels of government, to private sector and supply chains were considered at the PARLE. The event focussed particularly on: Schools WASH; Behaviour change for sustainable WASH; and; Working effectively with the enabling environment.

The event's four-day program, facilitated by Krissy Nicholson, Ross Kidd and Bronwyn Powell, CS WASH Fund Management Facility (FMF) Knowledge and Learning Manager, included an open day presentations by key dignitaries and thematic discussions, workshop sessions and field trips to local informal communities and schools. The following provides access to presentations given at the event. 

Fantastic discussions around some serious challenges were had by participants, and these lessons and reflections have been captured in the Synthesis Report.
