AVSI Lesson learned on EiE construction interventions

Subject/Objective: 

AVSI has striven to build long-lasting TLS that can be improved by the community in a bid to increase value for money and foster local ownership. In the presentation are illustrated and justified the technical solutions that were chosen.

Methodology: 

Filed visits

Key findings: 

Context specific approach: technical solutions and costs vary greatly depending on soil composition, environmental conditions that affect durability, and availability of materials
Invest in human resources: in-house construction engineer is needed
Invest in follow up activities, to review durability at 6 months and one year and learn from it
Provide some top-up resources and demand quality in exchange: $10k should be considered the benchmark for a semi-permanent TLS
