Intervention and Approach Map
A tool to map and evaluate the current interventions and approaches in behavioral change and promotion of sanitation
The sanitation actors in Tanzania use various behavioral change approaches (namely CLTS, PHAST, TSSM, Mtumba, etc.) in order to create demand for sanitation and hygiene in the communities. Transparent platform for exchange of information on the intervention locations along with the behavioral change approach used would facilitate better communication between the sanitation stakeholders.
Creating a user-friendly platform would inform sanitation actors of the location of areas already triggered. Joined with a monitoring tool it could also allow for impact assessment of the used approaches in order to inform the National Sanitation Campaign Committee.
Each sanitation stakeholder (MOHSW, WSP, WaterAid, UNICEF, TawasaNet etc.) could report on a web-based map platform on the approach (CLTS, PHAST, etc.) they are currently using/they used in the past/or they are planning to use in sub-villages/villages.
– The platform should allow the government of Tanzania and development partners to easily feed and update the data on the interventions per location
– It should indicate the time, the period of the intervention as well as the type and size of the community targeted (children/women/men, Maasai, etc.)
– The platform should have a simple yet safe registration process
– The outcome – a map – could be later on juxtaposed with the outcome of ‘Electronic Sanitation Performance Monitoring ’ exercise.
– More information about the hygiene and sanitation approaches used is available at: http://www.wsscc.org/sites/default/files/publications/wsscc_hygiene_and_sanitation_software_2010.pdf
The user of this tool would be the government of Tanzania, specifically the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare (MOHSW) and the Prime Minister’s Office for Local Government (PMO RALG) for use within the National Sanitation Campaign and beyond. There is also strong backing for this tool from development partners such as the World Bank, WSP, DfiD, the African Development Bank, UNICEF, and WaterAid.
In addition to possible Hackathon prizes, there could be further incubation, testing and rollout support for high-potential solutions.
