New Analytics to Reach the Poor With WASH Services

In the era of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), equity and inclusion are very much front and center on the agenda in striving for universal access to water supply, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH).  These goals also raise the standard that defines access to services - and with higher standards comes increased costs.  Therefore, decision makers will need to be more efficient in how resources are allocated and spent especially when working out how best to reach those who are more vulnerable.  A logical starting point is having a clear understanding of where poor and vulnerable populations reside in a country, and then understanding their current level and quality of services.  Only then can we begin to understand the nature and magnitude of the problem, what might be binding constraints to improve WASH services keeping in mind SDG standards, and how these might be overcome. With support from Swedish SIDA, the World Bank,has developed methodologies to address these questions under the global WASH Poverty Diagnostic initiative.  This event is co-organized with the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, UNICEF/WHO Joint Monitoring Programme, and Swedish SIDA.
