DISCOVERY: We start a discovery process by learning what is already there. We identify WASH priority needs of a community by listening and learning from stakeholders. Then, we apply scientific techniques to assess existing water, sanitation, and hygiene resources to meet community needs within the broader context of local or regional water management.
STRATEGY: We select a strategy to meet the identified needs, along with local partners. We narrow WASH solutions and engage a wider range of stakeholders to evaluate the options and determine what works best for the local community. Everyone gets involved.
EXECUTION: Then comes the implementation with our partners. We build systems needed to move and treat water, as well as sanitation and hygiene infrastructure. We identify key WASH indicators needed to monitor functionality. We make sure there are people to monitor the water and sanitation systems. And, we spend time building capacity among stakeholders to monitor, repair, and manage water and sanitation systems.
EVALUATION: We monitor WASH programs by analyzing data. This lets us to determine if things are working and gives us and local partners the information to make modifications as necessary. All of this ensures a sustainable WASH service.
