Campaign on the real cost of sustainable services will focus now on water
Updated - Thursday 29 November 2012
“The real costs of sustainable services” campaign was launched in October 2012. The first theme focused on “costing Sustainable Sanitation Services”. This December and January, water services will be in the spotlight. We will share with you key findings and messages from WASHCost’s research on water services in Burkina Faso, Ghana, India, and Mozambique.
We aim to show throughout this entire campaign the importance and potential uses the life-cycle cost approach. Anyone who is conducting or is interested in WASH-related work can take examples from the campaign to influence budgeting, policy making, and planning processes for WASH service delivery.
Each month, from October 2012 to March 2013, the campaign will feature a different topic with a roundup of key findings and facts from the WASHCost research. After the water services theme, the campaign will focus on the uptake of the life-cycle costs approach by different organisations around the world. The last topic of the campaign will take a close look at hygiene findings.
You can learn more about the campaign here. We also invite you to follow and participate in our twitter conversations @IRCWASH by using the hash tags: #LCCA and #WASHCost.
