theory of change

assumptions, inputs, outcomes, and impact

Water For People’s high-level Theory of Change, including our assumptions, inputs, outcomes, and impact that accelerate our progress toward SDG 6

To achieve Everyone Forever goals and SDG 6, we advocate for and strengthen WASH systems for effective, sustainable, and scalable service delivery. This goes beyond infrastructure development to strengthening the entire WASH ecosystem, which includes:

  • Building political support and appropriate regulation for universal access and a sustainable service environment
  • Supporting comprehensive planning, defining roles, and supporting capacity-building of government, market, and community partners
  • Ensuring services are sustainably financed
  • Ensuring annual monitoring for adaptive management and accountability
  • Ensuring appropriate infrastructure and water resource availability and safety

These efforts, in collaboration with government, NGO, and private sector partners, provide the foundation and proof to scale sustainable service delivery nationally, leading to quality WASH services for Everyone Forever and accelerating progress toward SDG 6.
