Empowering the next systems leaders

Today’s challenges demand new leadership and holistic solutions 

Achieving universal water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) services, that are also sustainable and climate resilient, is only possible with strong national WASH systems driven by government leadership. The Partnership for WASH Systems in Africa was created to support African governments and their partners in 19 priority countries in strengthening these systems.   

It’s through this partnership that UNICEF’s Agora and IRC’s WASH Systems Academy are proud to be launching 3 bilingual online courses on systems strengthening and finance for WASH.    

Save the date for an interactive and engaging live talk show on systems thinking as we launch three free online courses designed to drive systems strengthening and positive change towards universal access. 

Test your knowledge, get inspired by systems experts, meet like-minded allies, and learn about the new courses on offer [English and French]:
