SOIL Speaks at World Water Week: Can NGOs Enable Sustainable Change?
How do we ensure that people around the globe have access to clean water? How can water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) programs be effectively implemented in vulnerable communities? And why is track record of international WASH initiatives marked by profound failures? These questions were at the core of the most recent World Water Week conference, an annual event hosted by the Stockholm International Water Institute in Stockholm, Sweden. SOIL’s Executive Director, Dr. Sasha Kramer, was a guest speaker at the conference, and presented Haiti as a case study for international WASH interventions. Sasha discusses lessons learned from years of working with sanitation in Haiti, as well as suggestions for moving towards effective, sustainable, and culturally appropriate WASH programs.
