Monitoring the finance needed for sustainable service delivery : keynote paper for Topic 1 of “Monitoring Sustainable Service Delivery Symposium

The WASH sector has come a long way since 2010; as WASH professionals, we are starting to have a common and shared financial language. So what is preventing us as a sector to have better financial data? And when we get it, what is holding us back from sharing it? At the symposium, the many presenters will aim to go beyond these constraints, provide their visions and share specific methodologies that can monitor finance.
The purpose of this Background Paper is to introduce Topic 1 of IRC’s International Water and Sanitation Centre Symposium 2013 on Monitoring Sustainable WASH Service Delivery: “Monitoring the finance needed for sustainable service delivery”. The objectives of Topic 1 are: to present and discuss the latest technical proposals that monitor and track financial flows in the WASH sector at international and national levels, and to provide a platform for discussion on the difficult area of measuring the cost effectiveness of hygiene interventions. Furthermore, it is expected that the incentives for financial monitoring are demonstrated and how information can be used in practice to improve service delivery. [authors abstract]

Abstract

The WASH sector has come a long way since 2010; as WASH professionals, we are starting to have a common and shared financial language. So what is preventing us as a sector to have better financial data? And when we get it, what is holding us back from sharing it? At the symposium, the many presenters will aim to go beyond these constraints, provide their visions and share specific methodologies that can monitor finance.
The purpose of this Background Paper is to introduce Topic 1 of IRC’s International Water and Sanitation Centre Symposium 2013 on Monitoring Sustainable WASH Service Delivery: “Monitoring the finance needed for sustainable service delivery”. The objectives of Topic 1 are: to present and discuss the latest technical proposals that monitor and track financial flows in the WASH sector at international and national levels, and to provide a platform for discussion on the difficult area of measuring the cost effectiveness of hygiene interventions. Furthermore, it is expected that the incentives for financial monitoring are demonstrated and how information can be used in practice to improve service delivery. [authors abstract]
