Sustainability of WASH services supported by WaterAid in Uganda 13 Feb 2013 | Prof Richard C Carter and Geoffrey Kidega

This assessment seeks to understand if the arrangements put in place in by the WaterAid/EUWF programme will ensure sustainability of water and sanitation services and hygiene behaviour changes. The assessment also undertakes a wider examination of the Community Based Management System (CBMS) for rural water services, as set out in various national policy documents and put into practice by District Local Government and NGO actors. It also explores what an equivalent of CBMS would look like, as it applies to sanitation and hygiene.

ICT to improve water governance

ICT to improve water governance 20 Oct 2013 | World Water Week 2013

ICT is quickly changing relationships, facilitating the measurement and monitoring of water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) interventions, and enabling local-level practitioners to use evidence to guide decision-making. As a result, equitable access and the sustainability of WASH services are improved.

While ICT is bringing new opportunities for WASH interventions, there are several challenges to using the full potential of ICT in our work.
