Webinar: Testing the waters: potentials and pitfalls of using ICTs in the water and sanitation sector

8th Sep 2015

Register here

What are the factors that facilitate and inhibit the success of ICT-based reporting to improve rural water supply sustainability? 

Find out by joining a webinar on Tuesday 8 September, from 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM CEST,  that will look into the potentials and pitfalls of using ICTs in the water and sanitation sector. 

This webinar brings together the results from two recent studies: a study from the Making All Voices Count Initiative in collaboration with WaterAid, IRC, and Itad that examined the factors of success in rendering water services more sustainable through ICT reporting, and research by the Water and Sanitation Program in collaboration with CoWater and iCOMMS, which explored the potential of ICTs in the water and sanitation sectors in Africa more widely.

The webinar will be chaired by Louisa Gosling, WaterAid. There will be two presentations followed by time for discussion by the participants.
