This review found that all four country programs are facing similar difficulties in institutionalizing water point mapping within routine local and national government planning and monitoring processes, and in establishing sustainable mechanisms for regular updating of WPM data. The major ongoing challenges to WPM can be broadly categorized as follows: i) technological, mainly related to the use of GIS, ii) operational, namely procedures for regularly updating and reporting WPM information; and iii) governance-related, namely wider challenges associated with sector performance monitoring [authors abstract]
