Agenda For Change

08 Jan 2016

Achieving the Sustainable Development Goal of universal access to water, sanitation, and hygiene services (WASH) by 2030 is an incredible feat, one that requires a collective understanding of the problem and its solutions.

Together with WaterAid, IRC, Aguaconsult, and the Osprey Foundation, we’ve discovered that even though we all started in different points, working in isolation doesn’t guarantee sustainable development. That is why we came together to establish a list of shared principles called the Agenda For Change. These principles will align our organizations, make us more accountable, and guide our individual contributions to our shared 2030 vision.

Through these guidelines we are striving to address access systematically, meaning national systems need to be put in place to break the cycle of dependency and poor service delivery. And that every approach needs to tackle all dimensions of the WASH sector including–but not limited to–policy, financing, and institutions. When it comes down to it, it is all about building capacity at a local, national, and global level.

Why Don't We Fix Our Site for X Browser?

Essentially, Water For People is a non-profit and we would rather spend money on our causes instead of the very significant amount of money that it would cost us to design and maintain a website that works for legacy, unsupported browsers.
