Knowing what you have: using an asset inventory tool to improve water services in South Ari woreda
Description: To increase water supply coverage, you have to know what assets are in place. And which of these are functioning and which not. And not only that, you also need to know the reasons for non-functionality and the service levels water points are delivering: access, quantity of water, reliability, and water quality. Only then you can develop plans with realistic budgets for maintenance of existing assets. Data on the status of the assets can also be used as advocacy towards local and regional government for allocating a higher share of the budget to the water sector. In South Ari woreda in Ethiopia we are carrying out these asset inventories together with local government. We are tracking an estimated 520 water points and water schemes, and conducting water quality tests on 20% of these and triangulate all the information with water committees and water users. The work is being done with partners of the IRC Ethiopia country programme, the support from the USAID Sustainable Systems Initiative (led by the University of Colorado Boulder) and the USAID Lowland WASH Activity in Ethiopia.

Webinar: monitoring systems change
Description: Webinar: Monitoring systems change Thursday, 17 August 2017 09:30 AM EDT (Washington DC) Harold Lockwood, the Director of Aguaconsult presented the findings from a recent landscape of frameworks being used to assess WASH systems. As part of the monitoring group of Agenda For Change, Aguaconsult carried out a rapid landscaping of known frameworks that are being applied in different contexts and that include elements of assessing WASH systems. The landscaping identified 15 such tools or frameworks that include a range of dimensions and indicators to assess both change in systems and in WASH service delivery. The aim of the landscaping is to provide a summary for organizations that are interested in trying to assess WASH systems, and the changes (in strength) of such systems over time. The examples range from newly developed frameworks, to those that are quite well established and broadly applied; the landscaping also identified a number of common features and gaps. The webinar is the first in a series of conversations about how to effectively measure changes in WASH systems over time.
