How can you easiliy assess and monitor functionality of water services? IRC is testing out FLOW in three districts in Ghana, as part of the Triple-S project. FLOW helps the user assess whether or not facilities are functioning or are on the verge of disrepair. Check out this video in which Marieke Adank and Nicolas Dickinson present experiences and lessons learned with monitoring WASH service delivery in Ghana.

On Wednesday 1 February 2012, Marieke Adank and Nicolas Dickinson from IRC International Water and Sanitation Centre, shared their experiences with the monitoring of water services in three districts in Ghana. The tool that is being tested there is FLOW: Field level Operations Watch.

FLOW brings together Android mobile phone technology and Google Earth software. FLOW lets field workers record data from water points or sanitation facilities. It helps the user assess whether or not facilities are functioning or are on the verge of disrepair. FLOW is a tool that has been developed by Water for People.

This video shows the presentation given by Marieke and Nicolas. Watch the discussion that followed the presentation, during this webinar.

The IRC webinars are an initiative from the IRC team working on innovations in WASH. This team seeks to enhance learning and sharing of lessons on innovations in the WASH sector. Monthly lunch meetings are organised for IRC staff and broadcasted via the web so that others can follow, or download the presentation and discussion.
