SMARTerWASH Monitoring of Rural Water and a Community Water and Public Private Partnership
(BY MRS. PAULINE E. P. TAMBRO – CHIEF PUBLIC RELATIONS MANAGER)
An important element of ensuring the provision of sustainable water services is having a robust and comprehensive monitoring system that provides continuous reliable data required for remedial, corrective action and strategic planning. Effective monitoring of the functionality and service levels of rural water and sanitation facilities is key to sustainable delivery of water and sanitation to beneficiary communities.
The Community Water and Sanitation Agency (CWSA) held its 2011 Annual Review Conference from 23rd to 27th April, 2012, at the Anita Hotel, Ejisu, Ashanti Region. The conference focused on a core function of the Agency which is ensuring that services are provided in a sustainable manner and there is a continuous mechanism to monitor services provided in the Rural Water and Sanitation Sub-sector.
To this end, the Agency has adopted the Service Delivery Approach. The theme for the conference was “TRACKING FUNCTIONALITY OF WASH FACILITIES: A KEY TO SUSTAINABLE SERVICES.”
