In Episode 7 of the Between Two Baobab Trees series, we continue from episode 6, our discussion of issues of water security, sanitation and hygiene, what we at USAID have begun to call WSSH or "whush." This acronym incorporates water, sanitation and hygiene, or what is commonly known in the sector as, WASH, with broader water security issues such as those addressed by water resources management or WRM techniques.
