Information and communications technology (ICT) has transformed how people communicate. ICT is quickly changing relationships, facilitating the measurement and monitoring of interventions, and enabling practitioners at a local level to use evidence to guide decision making for the equitable and sustainable extension of water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) services.
Despite this promising outlook, several challenges exist to use the full potential of ICT. Is there sufficient knowledge to apply the new technologies effectively? What has worked and how? Who has access to the information and are incentives in place for using information to improve services? What are the associated costs?
The seminar, ICT to improve water governance, provided a platform for discussion. Three sub-topics were presented. This briefing note summarises the key points.
