Learning for Advocacy and Good Practice – WaterAid Water and Sanitation Mapping

WaterAid is increasingly using “mapping” as a substantial component of their support work in country for monitoring the effectiveness of their investments in service delivery, verifying water supply and sanitation coverage, evaluating access and equity in rural and urban contexts and for strategic planning and advocacy at local and national government levels.

Yet, the scale and mode of implementation varies widely across the organisation and, so far, there is little documentation and coordination of mapping exercises within WaterAid.

The purpose of this project is to create a better understanding of the processes, methodologies, outputs and impacts of mapping carried out by different WaterAid country programmes and its local partners so as to encourage learning around water and sanitation mapping across WaterAid's country programmes and partners. The project includes field visits to Ghana, Malawi, Nigeria, Nepal, Pakistan and Tanzania.
