WASH/IWRM alignment in Dutch foreign policies and practices : main findings from interviews and literature review

In order to ensure sustainable water sanitation and hygiene (WASH) in a context of decreasing water security, there is a need to align WASH and integrated water resources management (IWRM). While the Dutch government acknowledges the need for alignment, these intentions are not reflected in action. Top priority is to step up collaboration within the Dutch government and to seek collaboration with others to fill gaps. Next to that there is a need to develop guidelines for integrated programming and to have clearer criteria for how WASH proposals are being assessed.

Abstract

In order to ensure sustainable water sanitation and hygiene (WASH) in a context of decreasing water security, there is a need to align WASH and integrated water resources management (IWRM). While the Dutch government acknowledges the need for alignment, these intentions are not reflected in action. Top priority is to step up collaboration within the Dutch government and to seek collaboration with others to fill gaps. Next to that there is a need to develop guidelines for integrated programming and to have clearer criteria for how WASH proposals are being assessed.
