Governance of Water and Sanitation : as applied to humanitarian and development projects

Providing people with access to essential services such as water and sanitation demands a combination of solutions in the face of a wide range of problems. NGOs today increasingly view the governance of water and sanitation as a fundamental condition for establishing lasting access to water, sanitation and hygiene for the people their projects are designed to benefit. Action contre la Faim is an important actor in the combat for access to Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) in the developing countries where it works. Since 2006, ACF has been examining the issue of water governance and the right to water through a range of measures that include research, advocacy and communication.

Papier de positionnement d’ACF International sur l’agro-écologie

ACF considère l’agro-écologie comme la meilleure approche agricole pour réaliser la sécurité alimentaire, en particulier pour les populations les plus vulnérables. En effet, l’agro-écologie représente une alternative crédible pour apporter une meilleure contribution à la sécurité nutritionnelle. Les pratiques agro-écologiques permettent d’augmenter les rendements, souvent même plus que l’agriculture conventionnelle, apportant ainsi des solutions alternatives et locales aux enjeux de l’insécurité alimentaire. L’agro-écologie procure aussi d’autres bénéfices en termes de nutrition et santé, développement local, environnement, etc.

WASH’ Nutrition A practical guidebook on increasing nutritional impact through integration of WASH and Nutrition programmes

Undernutrition is a multi-sectoral problem with multi-sectoral solutions. By applying integrated approaches, the impact, coherence and efficiency of the action can be improved. This operational guidebook demonstrates the importance of both supplementing nutrition programmes with WASH activities and adapting WASH interventions to include nutritional considerations i.e. making them more nutrition-sensitive and impactful on nutrition. It has been developed to provide practitioners with usable information and tools so that they can design and implement effective WASH and nutrition programmes. Apart from encouraging the design of new integrated projects, the guidebook provides support for reinforcing existing integrated interventions.

Tracking government expenditure on nutrition in Sierra Leone - Piloting the SUN three step approach

In May and June 2016, the first budget tracking of government expenditure on nutrition in Sierra Leone was conducted by ACF with an external consultant from Oxford Policy Management (OPM). Implemented through the SUN three step approach, this study enabled an analysis of the trends of government funding between 2012 and 2015, and is a useful tool for further accountability on nutrition funding in Sierra Leone. It describes expenditure on both nutrition specific and nutrition sensitive interventions, and disaggregates it by ministries, including the Ministry of Health, Ministry of Agriculture, Ministry of Education, Ministry of Social welfare and Ministry of Water resources.

2013-2016: The trends of Government funding for nutrition in Sierra Leone

Ranking 181/188 in the Human Development Index, Sierra Leone remains one of the countries with the highest maternal and infant mortality rates. According to the 2014 National Nutrition Survey, the Global Acute Malnutrition, Severe Acute Malnutrition and stunting (chronic malnutrition) rates in Sierra Leone stand at 4.7%, 1.0% and 28.8% respectively. The Government of Sierra Leone (GoSL) signed up to various commitments in the context of regional and global movements. As part of the Nutrition for Growth Summit (N4G, London, 2013), the GoSL committed to reduce stunting in children under 2 to 11.7% and global acute malnutrition in children under 5 to 2% by 2020 while increasing exclusive breastfeeding to 70%. They also committed to increase funding for nutrition; create budget lines under Ministries of Health and Agriculture; and to ratify the Code of Marketing of Breast-milk substitutes (CMBS).
