IRC and Florida International University (FIU), finalised the agreement to expand IRC’s work on sustainable service delivery into Burkina Faso under the USAID programme: West Africa Water Supply, Sanitation and Hygiene Initiative (WA-WASH).
The work will be carried out in partnership with Eau-Vive - a French organisation working to improve access to water services in rural African communities - and the General Directorate of Water Resources, the national body for policy development and planning. It will continue through till 31 July 2015.
The approach used in Burkina Faso will be modelled on Triple-S, an IRC-led initiative to address the challenge of providing rural people with sustainable water services, which is already operating in Ghana and Uganda. One of the objectives of the work in Burkina Faso will be to develop and implement improved models for sustainability of rural and peri-urban WASH service delivery that are replicable throughout West Africa.
