This event aims to inspire and inform participants from the WASH sector on different pathways towards sustainability and domestic resource mobilisation when aid ends. Speakers from different types of organisations will reflect on their approaches towards exiting, and lessons learnt. Also, the event is a great networking opportunity, welcoming participants from the public, private and NGO sector, as there are drinks after the event.
When aid to the WASH sector ends, those involved (donors, NGOs, partner governments) need to develop appropriate phasing out strategies. These need to focus on sustainability of service delivery and the mobilisation of domestic financial resources to avoid any financial gap. Pim van der Male, Kate Pearson and Patrick Moriarty speak about such strategies from the perspective of a donor, a NGO and a think-tank.
