Interview of Dr Josué Ibulungu on the development of a semi-urban strategy for sanitation, hygiene and water
Dr Josué Ibulungu, SWIFT Consortium Coordinator, talks about the development of a semi-urban strategy for sanitation, hygiene and water in the Democratic Republic of Congo. This strategy significantly adapts CLTS for use in semi-urban areas.
Since 2014, the Sustainable WASH In Fragile Contexts (SWIFT) Consortium has been working to provide access to water and sanitation and to encourage the adoption of basic hygiene practices in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and in Kenya.
Various partners implement SWIFT’s actions in both target countries, in collaboration with governments as well as water providers, including utilities. The consortium is led by Oxfam, and includes Tearfund and the Overseas Development Institute (ODI) as global members.
The SWIFT programme is funded by UK aid from the UK government under a Payment by Results (PbR) contract.
