Monitoring and accountability

Systems thinking can be described as an approach to problem solving that balances holistic thinking with a tendency to reduce complex problems to their most basic parts.

This paper synthesises the findings of a WaterAid study into current donor thinking on measuring sector progress towards developing sustained WASH services, and the degree to which donors are embracing aspects of systems thinking in their approaches. It also offers recommendations for additional exploration and collaboration.
