The position requires a person who can bring about large-scale changes and has a passion for hygiene, sanitation and water issues.
Vision for the role
The vision for this role is demonstrate how the National Action Plan and related Provincial Action Plans can be delivered at the district level by leveraging available resources available for greater collective impact. WaterAid’s ‘District Wide Approach’ (DWA) and the principles of the ‘Agenda for Change: Achieving Universal Access to Sanitation Hygiene and Water by 2030’ will be adapted to the Cambodian context and utilised. Experiences gained from the program will be used to inform policy dialogue and decentralisation reforms at the national and sub-national level. In addition to working at the district level, the vision is to strengthen the sector by building systems for developing the next generation of WASH professionals. Initially this will be achieved through strengthening an existing WASH training and resource centre to become a valued, independent organisation.
