Partnerships in the water and sanitation sector

Partnerships have been seen as highly relevant to the promotion of human development since the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) were adopted by the UN in September 2000. In today’s world co-operation is vital if we are to achieve results in the most efficient, effective and immediate way. This also applies to the water and sanitation sector. But, what are partnerships exactly? What different kinds of partnerships are there? How do they work? How can we build partnerships for sustainable development and how can we assess them? This TOP addresses these issues, among others, and provides cases and examples. It offers a broad overview of partnerships as applied in the water and sanitation sector. The content is therefore aimed primarily at practitioners in the sector but is sufficiently generic to be of interest and use to workers in other sectors.

Abstract

Partnerships have been seen as highly relevant to the promotion of human development since the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) were adopted by the UN in September 2000. In today’s world co-operation is vital if we are to achieve results in the most efficient, effective and immediate way. This also applies to the water and sanitation sector. But, what are partnerships exactly? What different kinds of partnerships are there? How do they work? How can we build partnerships for sustainable development and how can we assess them? This TOP addresses these issues, among others, and provides cases and examples. It offers a broad overview of partnerships as applied in the water and sanitation sector. The content is therefore aimed primarily at practitioners in the sector but is sufficiently generic to be of interest and use to workers in other sectors.
