Keynote presentation by IRC CEO Patrick Moriarty for the 11th World Water Summit (WWS 11) of the Water and Sanitation Rotarian Action Group (WASRAG) on 31 May 2019 in Hamburg, Germany. It focuses on 3 points. One, that delivering water, sanitation and hygiene services requires a functioning water supply, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) system (made up of multiple actors and factors) and that to intervene effectively requires actively engaging with this system; two, that government has a crucial role to play within the WASH system and must be involved; and, three, that the way to drive systems change is through collective action. The presentation introduces the actors involved in the implementation of the Kabarole District WASH Masterplan in Uganda.
