Managing the Flow of Monitoring Information to Improve Rural Sanitation in East Java

Managing the Flow of Monitoring Information to Improve Rural Sanitation in East Java
  • World Bank Water and Sanitation Program (WSP). December 2010
  • Global Scaling Up Rural Sanitation is a WSP project being implemented in India, Indonesia, and Tanzania. Working with local governments and the private sector in 29 districts of East Java province in Indonesia, WSP's approach combines generating demand from local governments prior to initiating project interventions and demand from consumers for improved sanitation facilities and behaviours prior to making a greater range of sanitation products and services available through local markets. This demand responsive approach combines Community-Led Total Sanitation (CLTS), behaviour change communication, and sanitation marketing approaches to help villages become open defecation free (ODF). WSP's experience with participatory monitoring in East Java has shown that communities are fully able and highly motivated to monitor progress toward ODF and that they can regularly track changes in community access to improved sanitation. However, during 2009 the project team observed that while monitoring data was being generated regularly in the communities, much of this data was not reaching sub-district, district, or higher levels for regular consolidation. With a focus on implementing sustainable approaches, WSP focused on integrating innovations with existing monitoring mechanisms used by local governments. This working paper documents how this system works and shares insights based on implementation to date.
