The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene Partnerships and Learning for Sustainability (WASHPaLS) Project carried out a landscape assessment of information communication technology (ICT) use cases in the water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) sector. This assessment was an initial step toward understanding the demand and potential use for development or customization of a technology solution to support large-scale implementation and monitoring of Community-led Total Sanitation (CLTS) programs.

The article’s main goals were to understand how mobile-enabled ICTs are currently being used in WASH programming generally and CLTS programming in particular; document lessons learned and opportunities for ICTs to support both monitoring and implementation of CLTS programs; and provide insights into the overall process of developing or adapting a ICT solution to the needs of implementers, governments, and communities practicing CLTS.

This assessment was made possible by contributions from Marnie Valdivia, Siobhan Girling, Jonathan Annis, and Morris Israel (Tetra Tech); Dr. Jeff Albert (Aquaya); Hannah Taukobong (Iris Group, Inc.); and Elizabeth Jordan and Jesse Shapiro (USAID).
