IMC Worldwide has assisted Save the Children International (SCI) and CRESFED (Centre de Recherche et de Formation Économique et Sociale pour le Développement), with the redesign of their sanitation programme in Jacmel, Haiti, helping to achieve their goal of halving the population without sustainable access to safe drinking water and basic sanitation.
The European Commission-funded project was designed to increase sanitation coverage for low-income citizens in urban and peri-urban areas of Jacmel city, by introducing planned sewerage programmes, social marketing of latrines, water, sanitation and hygiene in urban schools and implementation of ecosan lavatories.
To achieve their goal of ensuring availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all in Jacmel, SCI acknowledged that further refinements and changes to the programme design were necessary.
To provide advice on how to improve the project performance by modifying the design and management, IMC undertook the following:
The approach included regular feedback and discussion with project staff and senior management in Port-au-Prince and London.
A collaborative approach was taken, with frequent review meetings with the client, presentations of findings and recommendations to key stakeholders.
