Tracking national financial flows into sanitation, hygiene and drinking-water

Tracking national financial flows into sanitation, hygiene and drinking-water
  • World Health Organization (WHO). July 2012
  • This working paper lays out basic proposals for a common methodology to track WASH financial flows at the national level. It outlines a process that countries will need to go through in order to derive more comprehensive and reliable estimates of spending on WASH at the national level. The objectives of this working paper are twofold:(1) to determine the state of the evidence on the monitoring and reporting of financial flows to the water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) sector at the national level;(2) if knowledge gaps are confirmed, to identify the key tenets of a methodological framework that could significantly improve our understanding of financial flows in the WASH sector and be rolled out in a large number of countries as part of UN-Water Global Analysis and Assessment of Sanitation and Drinking-Water (GLAAS) 2014 and beyond.
