The toolkit has emerged from consultations with WASH and Nutrition professionals, both within and outside of UNICEF, to learn about their experiences and draw out the good practices on integrated WASH and Nutrition programming. A review report was produced, which captured the latest global evidence and practice in the region and identified bottlenecks to more integrated programming. Key bottlenecks identified during the review process include

  • Limited staff time, capacity or interest
  • Siloed, restricted or uncoordinated funding cycles
  • Limited knowledge of other sectors
  • Lack of evidence
  • Lack of time allotted to show program impact
  • Lack of accountability in coordination structures
  • Uncoordinated government ministries
  • Difficulty in monitoring ‘another outcomes area’

Guidance and tools were then developed to target the key bottlenecks and support UNICEF staff to implement synergized programming. This toolkit has been designed for use in a variety of contexts. The tools are aimed at UNICEF section chiefs and other program managers in the sectors of Health, Nutrition and WASH but the narrative of the toolkit is designed to be accessible to a multi-sectoral audience.
