The concept of Linking Relief, Rehabilitation and Development (LRRD) aims at improving integration and coordination between humanitarian actors and development actors in transitional contexts. Notwithstanding large popularity of the concept, its application in the field is challenged by many obstacles, especially in the WASH sector.
This article describes HYDROCONSEIL experience in this area and lessons learnt in various countries. It provides examples of challenges faced in unstable settings and areas of recurrent or protracted crises, such as trade-offs between providing quick disposable infrastructure and more expensive long-lasting equipment, difficulties in involving stakeholders, and complex achievement of cost-recovery of services. Three main recommendations are provided to help aid practitioners face such challenges: The need to invest significant time and resources in the initial needs assessment, the need to choose water or sanitation infrastructure/equipment which is both ambitious and pragmatic, and the need to allow for flexibility in the project’s methodologies.
