The Making All Voices Count Initiative, in collaboration with WaterAid, IRC and Itad ran a webinar on 8th September.
This webinar brought together the results from two recent studies: a study from the Making All Voices Count Initiative in collaboration with WaterAid, IRC, and Itad that examined the factors of success in rendering water services more sustainable through ICT reporting, and research by The Water and Sanitation Programme in collaboration with CoWater and iCOMMS, which explored the potential of ICTs in the water and sanitation sectors in Africa more widely. The webinar was chaired by Louisa Gosling, WaterAid. There were two presentations followed by time for discussion by the participants.
