Thematic focus: Understanding WASH sector monitoring
Updated - Friday 08 February 2013
As water and sanitation coverage expands, the need to know the status of systems and services becomes more critical. Governments are increasingly realising the importance of good monitoring information at multiple levels to ensure that services are sustainable and investments are not wasted. Development partners adapt their monitoring indicators to make their interventions more sustainable. The number of initiatives to strengthen WASH service delivery monitoring is growing. New tools are being developed and international indicators are being refined. The Monitoring Sustainable WASH Service Delivery Symposium 2013 will provide a global platform for sharing these initiatives, tools, indicators and experiences.
