This building block is strong when: clear frameworks exist for the development of plans and budgets at all levels of government and all levels of service providers, as well as when there is clarity about and capacity for their development.
Members are strengthening this building block by:
- Strengthening wider sector planning processes, including cross-sectoral planning, and inputting into national plans and strategies
- Helping service authorities to develop evidence-based fully costed strategic WASH plans
- Strengthening the capacities of service providers to develop strategic/business plans
- Undertaking assessments to inform and catalyse action planning (e.g., shit flow diagrams, non-revenue water or functionality assessments, etc.)
