You Manage What You Measure: Using Mobile Phones to Strengthen Outcome Monitoring in Rural Sanitation

You Manage What You Measure: Using Mobile Phones to Strengthen Outcome Monitoring in Rural Sanitation
  • World Bank Water and Sanitation Program (WSP). October 2012
  • The use of Information and Communication Technology (ICT), through the use of mobile phones, to collect data on sanitation behaviour and make available almost real time data, offers potential at large scale. A proof of concept was piloted to test the viability of using mobile technology to strengthen monitoring in the rural sanitation sector in two blocks (sub districts) of varying socioeconomic characteristics in India. The pilot covered 23,000 households in a span of two to three months. This field note presents results of a proof of concept piloted by World Bank Water and Sanitation Programme (WSP).
