This document provides a framework to support reflection and documentation of the learning alliance process in the three focus countries of the WASHTech project: Burkina Faso, Ghana and Uganda. This framework consists of five elements that cover key elements of any learning alliance process: essence, arborescence (or rooting), presence, resilience and evidence of the alliance. The learning alliances in Burkina Faso, Ghana and Uganda build on existing platforms, groups and learning events at national and decentralised levels. In 2011, alliance activities such as scoping studies and meetings were initiated. In Learning Alliances in WASHTech, alliance facilitators in each country identify opportunities and challenges faced in 2011. Opportunities include several national and international platforms and events which provide space to share WASHTech outputs and engage stakeholders (end 2011 and 2012) and linkages between the host organisations and other sector players. Challenges include the development of (linkages with) active decentralised platforms, getting the right people involved and keeping them on board in a learning process. Linkages with other learning initiatives such as CLARA and with researchers outside WASHTech are important issues in the further embedding of the Technology Applicability Framework (TAF). WASHTech is a 3-year project (2011-2013) funded by the EC FP7 - Africa research programme and implemented by a consortium of European and African organisations led by the IRC International Water and Sanitation Centre.
