WASHCost (India) Project researches on the unit costs providing the WASH service delivery in rural and peri urban areas. As part of the research, the survey was conducted in 20 villages to find out the Transparency and Accountability and Participatory (TAP) systems using the qualitative and quantitative methods. The preliminary analysis of the data from 20 villages
in Rural Andhra Pradesh clearly establishes that “if relevant transparency, accountability and Participatory (TAP) systems are in place there was higher level of WASH service delivery. Further there is a clear difference among the award winning and non award winning villages on WASH service delivery and across the different indicators of TAP”. [authors abstract]
