IRC Uganda is committed to supporting Kabarole District to reach universal WASH coverage by 2030 through strengthening the district level capacity for coordination and planning towards rural WASH service improvement. A major component of this is building the capacity for WASH service level and asset monitoring to track progress towards WASH targets. With funding from the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation (CNHF) and Watershed programmes, IRC Uganda supported Kabarole District Local Government to undertake WASH asset and service level analysis in July and August 2019, done in a participatory manner aimed to build capacity and momentum for master plan implementation. This work is also supportive of a third programme in Kabarole, the Sustainable WASH Systems Learning Partnership, under which a learning alliance is being supported to motivate collective action and build capacity in the district.
The study adopted a mixed approach of qualitative and quantitative techniques in order to provide more comprehensive findings. This involved a census of all water sources in the District and WASH assets in schools. A representative set of household surveys were used to obtain information about the use and access of services by residents. Key Informant discussions were held with Local Government stakeholders and communities, including a village survey to identify unserved villages and interviews with caretakers at all water points. Biological and physio-chemical water quality tests were undertaken on 80 water sources.
