Monitoring and Evaluation for Rural Sanitation and Hygiene: Framework

Approach Guidelines
December 2021


Watch the launch webinar here

This framework is designed to be read in conjunction with the accompanying Monitoring and Evaluation Guidelines.

It provides guidance and details on useful and progressive approaches to monitoring rural sanitation and hygiene.

It aims to support rural sanitation and hygiene duty bearers and practitioners to select and use those most appropriate approaches to meet their needs.

The resource is aimed at:

  • Governments
  • Implementation agencies
  • Development partners
  • Service providers

Eventually, it is hoped that all of the more progressive M&E elements and features will become standard, and be incorporated in all sector monitoring systems.
