Summary of Study Session 4

In Study Session 4, you have learned that:

  1. The One WASH National Programme has four core Guiding Principles: integration, alignment, harmonisation and partnership.
  2. These principles were developed and adapted from global conventions and internationally agreed principles stated in the Paris Declaration on Aid Effectiveness, which established clear directions on each of the principles for donors and partner countries.
  3. The Guiding Principles emerged both at global and national level because of past experience of unsuccessful projects that had not followed the principles and had failed as a result.
  4. In addition to the four Guiding Principles, there are eleven Basic Implementation Principleswhich are presented in the Programme Operational Manual (POM).
