“There is ample evidence that the best solutions to challenges in the developing world are being designed by innovators and entrepreneurs that live within those communities.”
The WASH Impact Network is an initiative from Results for Development (R4D) to understand the needs of WASH innovators in India (and East Africa), and what factors accelerate or impede new idea uptake. The Network delivers resources and learning opportunities tailored to the innovators' unique needs.
The WASH Impact Network believes that the best WASH innovations come from the communities affected by inadequate WASH provisions, but there are often barriers innovators face in implementing new ideas. The goal is to understand these barriers, connect innovators to each other for peer learning, and connect them with other resources and learning opportunities to help them increase their reach.
Results for Development Institute, the Millennium Water Alliance, and Dasra are hosting a thematic discussion as part of their work with the WASH Impact Network: a group of over 120 WASH innovators across India and East Africa.
