Independent monitoring and verification of the Accelerating Sanitation, Water and Hygiene for All (ASWA II) Programme

Accelerating access to drinking water and household sanitation is key to achieving the sustainable development goals and DFID is funding ASWA II, a UNICEF programme that aims to achieve sustained access to sanitation, water supply and long-term adoption of hygiene practices in project areas across 10 countries.


focus in this £56 million programme is to make communities and districts open defecation-free, reaching 3.75 million people with first-time access to household sanitation. This is incentivized through a small payment-by-results component.  

Itad, along with our partners Iwel and Aguaconsult, provide third party monitoring support to DFID. This includes periodic assessments of UNICEF’s monitoring systems, sustainability checks and outcome surveys used by UNICEF to report project results to DFID, follow up monitoring of project activities and results and project-related advice to DFID.
