Grassroots level consultations in the WatSan sector evaluate the requirements of the people, and investigate the current condition and initiatives that can be taken at village level. Consultation meetings at grassroots level indicate the status of the rural situation and therefore can act as an orientation tool for planning purposes. Such meetings should be carried out in a random but coordinated fashion so as to reflect the true rural condition. Consultation through interactive meetings should take place; for unified actions a set of guidelines is essential. A questionnaire and guidelines have to enable analysis of the situation to occur in a uniform manner. A detailed and comprehensive explanation of the organisation of this grassroot consultation is provided in the annex.
