Last month a team from SNV together with the State Ministry of Physical Infrastructure of Eastern Equatorial State visited Magwi County to conduct an ODF verification for 6 villages. A walk through the villages and interaction with the communities revealed the tremendous transformation that had taken place since the introduction of CLTS.

The session on extra-household settings focused on sanitation and hygiene issues beyond the household, eg schools, markets, health facilities, refugee camps, settings with internally displaced people, prisons, and mass gatherings.

The last official day of the symposium brought forth many interesting things to think about.  Some of the key things discussed were various ways of measuring hand washing behaviour and whether the information we collect is actually used.

The third and last day of the Monitoring Sustainable WASH Service Delivery Symposium has also been very interesting. We listened to a couple of new presentations, among which the one about post-2015 indicators was the most appealing to me. In addition, we also had the opportunity to reflect on what we had learnt and the key questions we were taking with us.

The second day of the WASH M&E Symposium built off the momentum gained from the day before. Many interesting topics were discussed, including how well information gathered from monitoring truly reflects the reality on the ground and the inclusion of equity in our monitoring efforts in order to reach universal access. Both of these presentations encourage practitioners to truly understand the realities of those on the ground.

The second day of the Monitoring Sustainable WASH Service Delivery Symposium has been really exciting, with a lot of interesting presentations. I want to share here the four ideas that were most appealing to me: The Polictics of Monitoring; Applying an Equity Lens; Heterogeneity in Women's Experience? and The Potential of Using Smartphones in Monitoring Sanitation.

Yesterday (9th April 2013), the Monitoring Sustainable WASH Service Delivery Symposium, started in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. There are 409 participants from different institutions –international NGOs, governments, academia, consultants– involved in the WASH (Water, Sanitation and Hygiene) sector, coming from all over the world. Here, I will just share some of the most enlightening insights of my first day.

Over 400 people from 58 countries gathered together in Addis Ababa to begin 3 days of discussions on sustainable WASH M&E. The symposium is hosted by IRC (with support from the Government of Ethiopia, AMCOW, and various organizations) and includes WASH practitioners from government, NGOs, international organizations and academics, among other participants. The vision of the symposium in short is to drive towards "strong national sector monitoring systems that allow for planning and sustaining WASH services". There's a strong push towards government-led monitoring systems and continuous monitoring over time, not only of infrastructure but of the various components of WASH service delivery (e.g. the financing, the cost effectiveness, the behaviour changes).

I enjoyed this workshop and learnt a lot.  It was great to be a support facilitator and not where the facilitation buck stops. Which was with Sharon Roose and Petra, to whom thanks. Relaxing!
