Improving aid effectiveness across the WASH sector is a key aim of IRC.
Improving the effectiveness of aid is about the impact of development co-operation on the social and economic development of a country.
In the water, sanitation and hygiene sector this means: ensuring aid enhances the capacities of developing countries to deliver and sustain safe, reliable water and sanitation services and behavior change for hygiene and sanitation.
IRC is contributing to improving aid effectiveness by active membership of Sanitation and Water for All Partnership, supporting the African Working Group of the European Water Initiative and by conducting research – for example providing support in analyses and syntheses to UN-Water GLAAS report. IRC also supports governments in developing robust sector capacity able to optimise all available (domestic and external) resources towards providing and sustaining water, sanitation and hygiene services for all.
