Annexes to the report on the WA-WASH capacity building forum 2012, July 16 – 18, Ouagadougou

This report records the assessment of the state of affairs regarding WA-WASH Capacity Building (CB) in general as discussed at the internal-forum by WA-WASH partners and WAWASH partners local partners. To sketch the scene a number of chapters provide a succinct view on WA-WASH CB as it was thought through for the project proposal, next to chapters on what happened in the forum. The main conclusion is that WA-WASH needs an internal learning agenda for CB to be more than the sum of activities by individual partners. This agenda should be shaped by the WA-WASH country coordinators with help from the country KM teams. Second, this report records discussion on the specific WA-WASH CB activities – as discussed at the open forum – for the intermediate level. This is the WASH sector level in between the local (communities / government) and the national level. The WWAP (See PM chapter at the end) typifies this level as ‘Civil Society’ and ‘Enabling environment’. Research concluded that here – at least in Ghana and Burkina Faso – the so called ‘learning and sharing’ platforms are the conduits to shape WA-WASH capacity building at this intermediate level. A ‘regional level’ mentioned as the target group for CB in the WA-WASH PMP does not exist as such. [authors abstract]

To sketch the scene a number of chapters provide a succinct view on WA-WASH CB as it was thought through for the project proposal, next to chapters on what happened in the forum. The main conclusion is that WA-WASH needs an internal learning agenda for CB to be more than the sum of activities by individual partners. This agenda should be shaped by the WA-WASH country coordinators with help from the country KM teams. Second, this report records discussion on the specific WA-WASH CB activities – as discussed at the open forum – for the intermediate level.
