Resource Centre(s) Network promote Sector Learning in WASH

The PSO funded Resource Centres Network for Sector Learning (a.k.a. RCN4SL) in the Water, Sanitation and Hygiene context is holding its final reflection, documenting lessons and formulating recommendations workshop at the IRC International Water and Sanitation Centre (IRC) in The Hague.

The program is closely related to the thematic work undertaken at IRC on Learning for Change.
