SPLASH Sanitation Research Programme kick off coordination workshop – July 2011

A key feature of the design of the SPLASH sanitation research programme includes overall programme management and coordination. This aims to:

  • Determine and exploit synergies between projects to maximise programme effectiveness and impact
  • Monitor and support progress
  • Facilitate programme level dissemination

We were pleased to host our initial coordination workshop from 17-19 July in Kigali, Rwanda, including an informative urban sanitation field trip, kindly hosted by Valentin Mucyomwiza of Rwanda Environment Care. Our event took place alongside the Africa San conference which enabled additional participants from each consortium and donor agencies to attend.

The workshop clearly demonstrated how the SPLASH research programme is active along the entire length of the urban sanitation service chain. A large number of potential synergies were identified in both content, and method and we look forwards to realising this potential in our future work.

Lessons from SPLASH were also highlighted, both in the way in which they influenced the development of the programme, and as elements of good practice that the consortia might consider as the programme and projects move forwards.We plan to maintain and further these collaborative working relationships through regular teleconferences and annual programme level meetings aiming to maximise the effectiveness of such important urban sanitation research.
