Description: There is a lot to know.
Everyone wants to know.
New technology helps us to know a lot.
But is the way monitoring is done effective?
Government does need to know.
And since the responsibility for water and sanitation in most countries lies with local government, it is local government who needs to know.
But you do not need to know everything.
Knowing is not necessarily the same as using.
Start with what you need to know.
Consider the full cycle of data management.
Budget for the monitoring.
Assess your partners and collaborate.
Data helps to write proposals for funding.
Data enables local government and NGOs to coordinate planning.
Data results in timely replacement.
Data results in re-training water committees.
Data helps politicians to make evidence based decisions.
Data results in repairs.
Data increases government leadership.
Data empowers communities.
And ultimately data makes sure that safe water and sanitation services get to you… and stay with you!!!
The video Making monitoring count' was developed as part of the UNICEF-IRC partnership 'Knowledge Management and Sector Learning in West and Central African Countries'. It is based on a script by Ton Schouten.

Description: A story about Jane Nabunnya and Vida Duti. A story about colleagues, but most of all about a friendship with a special man: Ton Schouten.
On 22 May 2016 – IRC’s Ton Schouten passed away. Ton had worked with IRC for more than 17 years.
Ton played an important role in coaching and mentoring Jane and Vida. He did so in his own fashion. By taking the back seat.
In this video Jane and Vida share their memories on Ton, about his respect for the role of government. His love for documenting. Evidence. Good monitoring and good indicators. They also share their vision and commitment of taking his legacy forward.
This video was made for an event that took place on Wednesday 23 November 2016. An intimate event with Ton's family, friends, sector friends, former colleagues and colleagues - to mark the six months of his passing and to look back at his professional life, and the things he passionately built and cared about.
A tree was planted next to the The Hague IRC office in his memory.
