Case Studies | Tools & Manuals

This guide offers insights, tips, and advice to improve public services like water and sanitation through multi-stakeholder collective action and action research. It builds on 5 years of local systems change processes in Ethiopia and Uganda under the Sustainable WASH Systems Learning Partnership (SWS), as well as the authors’ decades of experience around the world. The aim of the guide is to equip the reader with some of the tools and knowledge needed to become a champion and “systems leader” for radical improvements in public services. This is achieved through a series of case studies, including reflections and wisdom from systems change facilitators in each context.
