This is a bilingual seminar on Monitoring the decentralised delivery of WASH services in rural areas and small towns in West Africa in Ouagagoudou, Burkina Faso organised by IRC International Water and Sanitation Centre and pS-Eau. Date: 07 - 09 April 2014  Designed in priority for stakeholders working in collaboration with local governments, this seminar will be an opportunity to share experiences in the field of monitoring WASH services at local level in West Africa.  The seminar will be structured around four themes: 



Access to safe water, improved sanitation, and hygiene education are essential for human development. Although access to water has increased dramatically (globally we met the Millennium Development Goal for water in 2010) progress on sanitation lags far behind. Annually millions of children still die from preventable water-borne illness that could be eliminated through improved water, sanitation, and regular practice of basic hygiene such as hand washing with soap.

One way in which poor communities are marginalized is lack of access- to public services, markets and employment opportunities- due to a lack of good roads. Many a time, the problem is the frequent damage to existing roads (rather than absence of roads). 

A large part of the damage is water-related. (In Ethiopia, for example, runoff causes 35% of all road damage). At the same time, roads designed with disregard to local hydrology/water use are known to wreak havoc on agriculture and water security in communities they pass through.
