Monitoring WASH Systems

May 2017

Monitoring of WASH systems needs to be much more sophisticated to reach universal access for everyone.

IRC’s podcast series WASH Talk shares ideas on changes the water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) sector has to make in order to contribute to achieving universal access by 2030. Experts from across the globe are involved in open discussions on their specific expertise and experiences.

In the third episode Tom Slaymaker (UNICEF) and Catarina Fonseca (IRC) talk about the need to collect more complex monitoring data on water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) services to establish the actual situation on the ground. This is essential to make progress to reach universal access and leave no one behind (Sustainable Development Goal 6).
