Agenda for Change members working on systems approaches
Please note this is a summary of information. You can learn more on the PTPS website (in Spanish).
Currently, the Para Todos Por Siempre (PTPS) movement has a membership of 19 Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) – 5 of which are members of Agenda for Change – and 2 Government Organizations committed to promoting, together with other local actors, the implementation of the principles of universality, quality, and sustainability in at least 28 municipalities in the next 10 years.
Systems strengthening activities
The PTPS movement, with the support of Water for People, IRC and Osprey Foundation, has facilitated collective, innovative, and comprehensive actions to strengthen the WASH system in coordination with local, municipal, and national stakeholders. Alongside PTPS, Water For People has supported the application of 5 life-cycle costing tools across 14 municipalities, leading to increased tariffs for covering service delivery costs. Currently, there are 28 municipalities of the country that are associated and committed to promoting actions that will allow their inhabitants to have universal access to potable water and sanitation services, with quality and sustainability.
How strong are the systems?
To determine how well systems are working, we rely on data derived from Building Blocks, which are manageable ‘sub-systems’ that can be supported and strengthened. Certain building blocks may be more strongly developed or applied at district or national level. Interactions between building blocks are essential.
