You need to be a member of Water, Sanitation and Hygiene to add comments!
Judging by the number of posts on Twitter, evidence for decision making seems to be a hot topic at the moment not only in the WASH sector but more broadly in the development realm. DFID, the British bilateral cooperation agency has published the latest “Water, Sanitation and Hygiene – evidence paper”. I agree generally with the broad lines of the conclusions about what we still need to know to do our jobs in the sector better, but it was with utter disbelief that I read what is considered “evidence” in the report and what is discarded as not being “sufficient evidence”.
