Our approachWe work closely with the World Health Organization (WHO), UNICEF, UN-Water, and the Sanitation and Water for All Partnership to: Research the progress made by the WASH sector – asking questions like: How well do donors collaborate to strengthen service providers? How did the East Asian ‘tiger’ economies achieve universal access in a generation? Support improved data collection and use through participation in national data reconciliation processes. We participate in the WHO/UNICEF Joint Monitoring Programme working groups to identify how best to monitor progress towards the Global Goals. We are involved in the development of the WASHwatch platform which gathers evidence of country and donor progress toward WASH commitments. Advocate that promises are kept. We campaign for greater transparency in WASH sector funding and operation to ensure money is spent and improvements made as efficiently as possible. We are part of the End Water Poverty Keep Your Promises campaign. We have worked in coalition to push for the most rigorous and comprehensive indicators to be applied to the Global Goals targets, to ensure they are met. WASHwatch For monitoring to be effective, it must be transparent and participative. WaterAid supports WASHwatch, the online collaborative platform, which makes it easy to visualise and share the latest developments and progress toward commitments. The data can be embedded in web pages, articles or blogs, or used in research and reports. By improving understanding of the WASH context in every country, we support evidence-based advocacy around the world.
