Innovation & Impact Fund
The Innovation and Impact (I&I) Fund encouraged CSOs within the Fund to trial new models and approaches which could have catalytic effects beyond the CS WASH Fund. This was in addition to the innovations within CSOs’ main projects.
The I&I Fund supported activities that:
- tested potential innovations
- provided evidence of the impact of innovative approaches and practices
- disseminated findings to improve the performance of the wider WASH sector.
