a sneak preview at measuring system strength
This week, I will take a sneak preview at the way in which at IRC we are measuring the strength of the WASH system.
The boundaries of these building blocks are not absolute and there are probably other ways to define the building blocks.
We do this by answering for each building block a number of questions (three to five per building block) around some of the key elements that need to be in place to ensure the building block is strong.
Also, because the boundaries of the building blocks are not fixed and the building blocks are interrelated.
These factors are many, and they interrelate with each other, giving the WASH system the characteristics of a complex adaptive system.
