To this end the Kampala WASH Symposium, held in Uganda in June 2016, looked beyond the conventional notion of ‘projects’ to explore how we, as WASH actors, can and should work together within the wider complex systems that deliver services. With participants and presentations from governments, donors, researchers, and practitioners, this event brought emerging thinking on how to drive whole-system change and support the building of robust national systems at scale capable of providing universal access. It focussed on the changes that are necessary for how externally supported WASH interventions are conceived, implemented and sustained over time.
In this short background paper we set out the critical issues discussed at the forum and why we believe that only by understanding our place in such complex systems will we be able to overcome the long-standing challenges in the sector.
