Strengthening WASH systems in Guatemala: An interview with Helvetas’ Director of Programs – Agenda for Change
Background: HELVETAS has been working in Guatemala since 1972 across three focus areas: water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH), agricultural value chains, and women’s empowerment. Since 2013, they have introduced work approaches for systemic change into the delivery of WASH services in the Western Highlands region, focusing on more equitable water management and more direct participation and influence of the end-users over local WASH governance.
