Providing a Resilient Framework for Stakeholder Engagement Through Learning Alliance: The Case of SWITCH Learning Alliance Approach in Sub-Saharan Africa
Abstract:Failings in conventional water management have led to the approach of Integrated Urban Water Management which seeks to close the loop in the water cycle. This paper reviews how the SWITCH consortium (of 33 partners) is dealing with stakeholder engagement in a complex research area and the related challenges and achievements. Gaps between theory and practice are identified, and major challenges are discussed with reference to Accra. The paper first gives an analysis of the framework for a learning alliance approach. Then it highlights the methodologies and activities undertaken as part of the learning alliance process. It ends with some key outcomes and lessons learnt that could be extended to other initiatives that use similar approach.
