Monitoring checklists: water points and latrines
GWI recommends regular monitoring of water points and latrines to ensure that all parts are maintained properly and that any potential problems are identified early on. We produced this guide to assist village and local government officials to regularly monitor facilities themselves. We make the link between monitoring and financing, as it is of course vital that enough funds are generated for ongoing maintenance of water points and latrines.
Agriculture in large-scale rice irrigation schemes needs to be made to work for both the state, in terms of economic returns and national food security, and for the smallholders whose livelihoods depend on it. When it comes to the development of new dams and large-scale irrigation, more information is needed about their economic viability and how the water, land, and economic benefits can be shared equitably to support local development.
