Sustainable sanitation and hygiene for all: performance monitoring instruction

Monitoring sanitation and hygiene behaviour is a complex topic, and often only the number of toilets is counted. While the introduction of CLTS has changed this “infrastructure focus” towards “use”, what is understood by ODF remains highly variable even within a single area. Moreover, very few reliable data is available over time that shows whether hygiene behaviours are sustained or moving up the sanitation ladder. SNV and IRC recognise that monitoring of sanitation and hygiene programmes may be one of the weakest areas of our sector. It is a key constraint for improved WASH governance, as the lack of reliable (performance) information limits evidence based decision making especially at local level. Improved performance monitoring is also essential for learning processes at local level. [authors abstract]

Abstract

Monitoring sanitation and hygiene behaviour is a complex topic, and often only the number of toilets is counted. While the introduction of CLTS has changed this “infrastructure focus” towards “use”, what is understood by ODF remains highly variable even within a single area. Moreover, very few reliable data is available over time that shows whether hygiene behaviours are sustained or moving up the sanitation ladder. SNV and IRC recognise that monitoring of sanitation and hygiene programmes may be one of the weakest areas of our sector. It is a key constraint for improved WASH governance, as the lack of reliable (performance) information limits evidence based decision making especially at local level. Improved performance monitoring is also essential for learning processes at local level. [authors abstract]
