WASH

Overview

Clean water, basic toilets, and good hygiene practices are essential to maintaining public health around the world. However, 40% of people globally do not use these improved sanitation systems, delaying other development goals. Furthermore, WASH projects located in remote and other difficult to access areas can be challenging to monitor at each stage of implementation, from installation to ongoing maintenance. Properly built and maintained water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) projects increase access to safe drinking water, water stances, latrines, solid waste management, and health awareness programs. These well-built assets are key to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) goals worldwide.
Weak institutions and shortages of skilled local personnel in places targeted by WASH projects make effective quality assurance and monitoring difficult, often resulting in WASH facilities that do not function correctly or are not used appropriately by communities. Using FieldSight, WASH project teams can collect qualitative and quantitative data on community awareness, WASH facility maintenance, and more. FieldSight has been used on WASH projects to collect geo-location data, quality and progress data, maintenance information, and community impacts. This information is available in near real time to inform effective monitoring and oversight.
