Assessment of the UNICEF / PRACTICA partnership on the professionalization of manual drilling in West Africa

Over the past five years, PRACTICA has supported the professionalization of manual drilling in several UNICEF WASH programs in West Africa.
There are many lessons learned enriched by the difficulties and successes encountered in different contexts. The two partners propose to take stock and assess these experiences to draw lessons and recommendations for ongoing and future actions for the professionalization of manual drilling, and to improve the effectiveness of the UNICEF / PRACTICA partnership with partners.
These results will be summarized through a desk study that will also integrate an evaluation of the UNICEF / PRACTICA partnership through an opinion survey of partners in the different country programs.
