Stockholm Water Week- Side event flyer
From Pilots to Policies: working with communities to improve urban water and sanitation
The side event will present work being carried out by IIED and five of its partners in Angola, Argentina, Ghana, India & Pakistan. The project documents innovative & inspiring examples of locally driven water and sanitation initiatives in deprived urban areas. It provides a basis for better understanding of how to identify and build upon local initiatives that are likely to improve water and sanitation in low-income settlements. The project also looks at how local organisations in those countries have managed to: scale up successful projects; work collaboratively; finance water and sanitation schemes; & use information systems such as mapping to drive local action and monitor improvements.
