Learning Brief: Innovation Integration and Uptake

Innovation Integration and Uptake: Learning Brief from research into effectiveness of WASH approaches and innovations in the Civil Society WASH Fund

Toward the end of 2017 the CS WASH Fund commissioned a team from Aguaconsult UK to conduct in-depth research of CSO interventions in four crosscutting areas: i. WASH policy influencing; ii. Gender and social inclusion (GESI); iii. WASH market facilitation; and iv. Innovation integration and uptake. The researchers worked with Fund administrators to prioritise the CSO interventions by focusing on those which have displayed promising approaches in these themes. Working together, they prioritised 23 CSO interventions, with 43 different unique interventions across the four themes. This Learning Brief presents the key findings from research in the area of innovation integration and uptake.

Concept development is the process of generating new ideas regardless of practicality with no wrong or right outcome. Consistent with this definition, innovations were placed into two broad categories: (i) good practices adapted from the global WASH sector new to the CSO or their country context, or (ii) untested solutions developed by CSOs new to the global sector which could be adapted for use elsewhere.
