Note from the field: Sanitation Mapper: A tool for mapping and monitoring sanitation in low-income countries
The Water Point Mapper, conceptualized and developed by WaterAid, has proven to be a valuable tool to inform the planning and design of interventions and build evidence for effective advocacy in the sector. Sanitation Mapper is a simple and low-cost technology to map sanitation facilities and their status in low- and middle-income countries. The process is based on Water Point Mapper experiences from WaterAid country programmes in Southern and East Africa regions. This paper reports on the piloting of the Sanitation Mapper in informal settlements in Dhaka and Matlab (Chandpur) in Bangladesh.
