Presentation accompanying the session 'Combining our strengths: exploring the complementarity of human rights and systems strengthening approaches' shared at the All Systems Go Africa symposium 19-21 October 2022.
To date, systems strengthening and human rights-based approaches mostly exist alongside each other. There is significant scope for learning and synergies: How can the legal obligations, criteria and principles of equality and non-discrimination, accountability, participation, access to information and sustainability that come with human rights be used to address bottlenecks in WASH systems?
This session explored the perceived divide between human rights and systems strengthening approaches.
