    • Water Point Mapping for Sustainability Monitoring:

    • Water Point Mapping for Sustainability Monitoring
      Beyond the technologies
      Erik Harvey – WASH conference 2011, Brisbane
    • What is WPM?
      A tool for monitoring the distribution and status of water points.
      Improve targeting of marginalised communities (equity)
      Highlight functionality issues (sustainability)
    • What is WPM?
      Rapid visualisation of different aspects of inventory & monitoring data
      Ideally should show spatial distribution of water points with population data & admin. boundaries.
    • Where does WPM fit?
      Baseline
      Inventory database
      Regular
      reporting
      Local Planning & Management
      Access
      Functionality
      Equity
      Water quality
      Water quantity

    • Why visualisation?
    • Mapping / Inventory
      Essential ingredients
      Reliable data
      Responsible authority
      Harmonised indicators
      Updating mechanism
      Accessible analysis
    • Developed by Water for People – web database & maps, mobile phone updating
      WatSan Portal supported by WSP and WaterAid. Mobile phone or manual inputs.
      Excel spreadsheet based mapping tool by WaterAid. Maps viewed in Google Earth.
      Excel spreadsheet based mapping tool by EWBC. Basic maps viewed within Excel.
      UN-HABITAT and Google supported initiative. Aims to generate monitoring tools.
      AfDB Malawi M&E system. May scale up to continent. Database driven will use WPM as methodology.
      Numerous initiatives
    • Lessons to date?
      Over-emphasis on the tools and the technologies
      Keeping data “live” and useful is paramount
      Data & maps must be “owned” by lowest appropriate decision making structure
    • Lessons to date?
      Tools must operate using existing local capacities
      Updating mechanisms using pre-existing networks of staff
      Only key (non-GIS) data needs updating
