Taking Learning Beyond the Hotel Conference Room How Local WASH Organizations Implement New Ideas

791 views shares 0 tweets

Millions of dollars are invested each year in events and programs designed to disseminate information, share knowledge, and build skills, but little is understood about what happens after learners leave the hotel conference room.

We call this “the Monday morning problem”: after a learner encounters a new approach or skill that they want to integrate into their program or organization, what barriers do they face when they go back to work on Monday morning and try to implement the new idea?

Results for Development (R4D) with our partners, Dasra and the Millennium Water Alliance, have been exploring this problem since 2014 by learning about the experiences of local WASH implementers in the WASH Impact Network. Our conversations and surveys have important lessons for implementers, partners, and funders on how to enhance learning in the WASH sector.
