One of the major challenges facing water utilities in the developing world is the high level of water losses—from physical losses (leakage), theft of water from the system, or because water users are not being properly billed. This difference between the amount of water put into the distribution system and the amount of water billed to consumers is known as ―Non Revenue Water (NRW).

Many programmes have not adequately incorporated participatory monitoring in their activities. Consequently, monitoring has continued to be viewed as an activity that is carried out by outsiders, or an activity to satisfy funding conditionality. Where monitoring has existed, it has mainly focused on efficiency (i.e. numbers of completed activities), overlooking the effectiveness (i.e. functionality, utilization), for the realization of the intended benefits. Even then, the information collected is not fed back to the users.

Introduction

Water Safety Plans (WSPs) provide water utilities with a riskbased, preventative approach to managing water supplies with the cooperation of other key stakeholders. Successful implementation of WSPs can improve drinking water quality, accrue operational efficiencies and provide a robust framework to better target more sustainable capital investments. Water safety plans also addresses factors that contribute to management of non-revenue water (NRW) through physical water losses in distribution systems.

The world may be awash with more data than ever, but this is not yet always well used to solve global problems like tackling poverty or building more sustainable futures. There’s a growing divide between those who have information and those who don’t, and between those who are counted and those who are not. We cannot hope to eliminate poverty and bring about lasting improvements in peoples’ lives without more data on people’s lives, without investing in data access and literacy, and without ensuring that the data that we have is used more directly in policy-making processes.
