The Sustainable Development Goals have introduced a new era of working towards ensuring the availability and sustainable management of water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) services to deliver target 6 (SDG 6) by 2030.

In Burkina Faso, a unique collaboration aims to achieve this goal through collective action. Their activities are concentrated in one municipality (commune) - Banfora – and are guided by a WASH master plan. This plan was developed by local government and partners in 2018 and it sets out the steps needed to achieve SDG 6 in the municipality.

This hand-out provides information about the status of WASH at national and municipal levels and outlines how IRC and a coalition of partners are working together with Government to inspire and catalyse change in the country.
