Agenda for Change aims to learn from the experiences of country-level collaborations and promote global best practices in water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) systems strengthening. In support of this aim, the Agenda for Change collaboration, with the support of IRC Ethiopia, organized a three-day meeting in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia in June 2022.
The purpose of the meeting was to bring together seven representatives from Africa (Central African Republic, Ethiopia, Malawi, Uganda, Rwanda) and Asia (Cambodia, Nepal) to discuss technical challenges, learning opportunities, and practical implementation of WASH systems strengthening efforts in a pandemic context. It further served as an opportunity to hold conversations about the district- and sector-wide approaches across country contexts through a participatory in-person exchange. Discussions included Agenda for Change members as well as participants from the government of Ethiopia and other country-level stakeholders.
