Background note for the symposium

The value of a systems approach to WASH

Why is it particularly challenging to realise lasting change for WASH? What do we know about systems thinking and how it has evolved over time in the sector? And what will you learn from the upcoming WASH systems symposium, All systems go!? This short symposium background note answers these questions and more.

All systems go! will be taking place between the 12th and 14th of March in The Hague, the Netherlands. It will be the first event exclusively dedicated to discovering and delivering system-based solutions for WASH. Read about the motivations behind the event and how shifting to a holistic systems strengthening approach can lead to more resilient and sustainable services for all.

A longer fully referenced version of this document will follow shortly.
