This briefing note summarises research into how young people are recruited and how their careers are developed in water supply and sanitation (WSS) services.
The research is part of the first phase of a project called 'Career Pathways Guidance'.
The project’s objective is to create guidance for services providers in the Global South, including utility and WSS services managers, on how to manage young people better, by understanding:
- their motivations and career aspirations
- the opportunities they want
- their preferred ways of working
- the skills that they bring.
The research presented in this document will be used to create the guidance.
The Career Pathways Guidance project is led by AquaFed and funded by the Netherlands’ Government’s Valuing Water Initiative Youth Journey.
The research was carried out by the Rural Water Supply Network (RWSN).
