A common background for symposium participants is provided. WASH service delivery monitoring is a broad topic, often understood in different ways by different people involved in it, depending on their purpose, the methods and approaches they follow or the institutional level at which they operate. It therefore tries to introduce key concepts and definitions around the most common forms of monitoring WASH service delivery, thereby focusing on those aspects of monitoring that relate to the vision outlined above. It does not seek to provide an exhaustive framework that captures all possible forms of monitoring. It also purposely focuses on the conceptual: we expect the specific examples and experiences to be captured in the key note documents and papers presented. This background paper should serve as a frame for placing and analysing those examples and experiences. [authors abstract]
