The Integrated Safe Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Assessment Tools developed by the Joint Programme of PRO WATER were tested in the Municipality of Siayan by trained Assessment Facilitators coming from the municipalities of Siayan and Sindangan, Dipolog Water District, Zamboanga City Water District, Zamboanga – Basilan Integrated Development Alliance and Jose Rizal Memorial University. The field testing process was done together with the training of assessment facilitators last September 7-11, 2015. The Assessment Facilitators also conducted spot checks of water and sanitation facilities.


The set of tools consisted of a household survey instrument that looks at the present conditions of safe water, sanitation and hygiene at the household level; tools for conducting focus groups discussions on gender equality, CCA/DRRM and governance; and, tools for conducting key informant interviews that will capture technical and engineering aspects of water and sanitation facilities.
