Crowd Sourcing Water and Sanitation Information
Involving citizens to report information about water and sanitation services in their area using crowd source options and open software.
There is no centralized, comprehensive & regularly updated database available on the water and sanitation sector in Pakistan. This results in duplication and decreased productivity. Whatever data is available cannot be verified as different organizations use different definitions for water and sanitation coverage, access, output, outcome and quality. Hundreds of NGOs working in this sector have little or no coordination amongst them that result in decreased efficiency.
Development of a centralized data base system based on crowd sourcing option for updating information on water and sanitation facilities.
The comprehensive information available through centralized database will help in planning, monitoring and setting of future targets. This helps in avoiding duplication of projects in one area and better use of investment and resources.
