The third in a series of webinars exploring the latest state-of-play in mapping and monitoring of rural water supply. We focus upon country-led monitoring systems, where information on rural water supply is collected, analysed and used to inform decentralised resource allocation. We look at different models for national monitoring and assess the environment required for embedding the systems and processes required for up-to-date knowledge of rural water supplies. We explore the impact monitoring has had on extending equitable and sustainable service delivery and each country provides key learning aspects.
