IRC is an international think-and-do tank that works with governments, NGOs, businesses and people around the world to find long-term solutions to the global crisis in water, sanitation and hygiene services. At the heart of its mission is the aim to move from short-term interventions to sustainable water, sanitation and hygiene services. In 2012 we signed an agreement to intensify our work with IRC and together promote innovative ways of monitoring. We are working together on a large programme in Ghana, which will see Akvo FLOW rolled out country-wide. We also jointly developed a new finance portal within our knowledge base, Akvopedia.
