Consultant-led sanitation marketing surveys typically take months to produce a thick report with largely impractical recommendations.
The IRC International Water and Sanitation is developing a field tool that delivers, within just one week, a one-page overview matching sanitation supply and demand.
The tool, a sanitation marketing dashboard, was tested in two unions in one of the upazilas (sub-districts) covered by the BRAC WASH II programme.
Preliminary results revealed for instance that the quality of construction and hygiene promotion needed improvement.
An updated version of the tool will be used in six to nine representative upazilas in the BRAC WASH II programme.
