SolutionMUS can help you

  • Tackle the multi-dimensional aspects of poverty more cost-effectively.
  • Address multiple national development targets simultaneously.
  • Streamline your approach for measuring impacts.


Are you unsure how to deal with the challenges of introducing SolutionMUS?


  • Working across sectors can be difficult since many technical government agencies are sector-based.


  • Work at the local level where departments are less compartmentalized.
  • Develop action plans around common points of interest across sectors.
  • Create incentives for integrated approaches.
  • Establish effective interagency coordination mechanisms.


 How you can help promote SolutionMUS

  • Allocate funds for Multiple-Use Water Services.
  • Support the development and financing of integrated programs across sectors.
  • Develop guidelines that account for water quantities needed to support health and livelihoods needs.
  • Use indicators that prioritize sustainability.
  • Account for benefits that may fall outside of a given sector, and measure the value that integrated programming adds.
