Netwas International


Network for Water and Sanitation (Netwas) was established in 1986 through a UNDP/World Bank program known as the International Training Network for Water and Waste Management (ITN). ITN was set up as part of a global initiative to support the International Drinking Water and Sanitation Decade (IDWSSD), which commenced in 1981 and ended in 1990. This program sought to establish centres of excellence in water and sanitation in developing countries. During its formative years, Netwas also received both financial and technical support from the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) to meet the challenges and gaps of the water decade. Initially, Netwas was kindly hosted by the African Medical and Research Foundation (AMREF) from its inception until the end of 1994.

ITN is currently constituted of nine global centres, four of which are located in Africa. These are Network for Water and Sanitation International (Netwas International - 1986) located in Nairobi, Kenya with autonomous country offices in Kampala (Netwas Uganda - 1986) and Dar es Salaam (Netwas Tanzania - 1986), catering for the Eastern African coun­tries; Center Regional Pour L’eau Potable Et L’assainissement A Faible Cout (CREPA - 1987) in Ougadougou, Burkina Faso, caters for the Francophone countries of West Africa; Institute of Water and Sanitation Development (IWSD - 1989) located in Harare, Zimbabwe; and Training Network Centre (TREND - 1989) located in Kumasi, Ghana.

The ITN has evolved from its original technology-orientation to a network, which now emphasizes capacity building aspects in the sector. Today, ITN contributes effectively towards sector policy reviews, formulation and development.

Netwas countries of concentration are Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Ethiopia, Eritrea and Sudan. However, Netwas is occasionally able to respond to needs expressed by sector institutions in other African countries

In 1995, Netwas International was registered as an independent and not-for profit organisation in Kenya. Since its registration, Netwas has operated with a considerable measure of success as a unique NGO, which has endeavoured to put into place non-traditional mechanisms for generating income to ensure its sustainability. Its operations stretch all over Africa although focussed towards the Eastern and Southern Africa region. Netwas has assisted to develop two national affiliates in Uganda (Netwas Uganda) and Tanzania (Netwas Tanzania) in a strategic effort to bring the services closer to the clients at national and grass root levels. Netwas is also a founder member of STREAMS whose secretariat is based in the Philippines.

Netwas works in partnership, collaboration and strategic alliances with a number of local and international organizations. A full list can be seen under Partners and Networks
