Video: Water was a Dream
Water was a Dream is a film describing IIED-America Latina's involvement in the improvement of water supply and sanitation services in three low-income urban settlements of Buenos Aires. It illustrates the challenges and strategies, and examines the key issues related to working in collaboration, using information as a driver for change, finance mechanisms, and scaling up.
The film is an output of a Sida, DANIDA and DFID funded project: Improving water and sanitation provision globally through information and action driven locally.
The project documents innovative and inspiring examples of locally driven water and sanitation initiatives in deprived urban areas. It also provides a basis for better understanding on how to identify and build upon local initiatives that are likely to improve water and sanitation in low income settlements.
Other organisations participating in the project include: Development Workshop (Angola), People's Dialogue (Ghana), OPP-RTI (Pakistan) and SPARC (India). The project is managed by the International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED).
