Webinar – Testing the waters: potentials and pitfalls of using ICTs in the water and sanitation sector

The Making All Voices Count Initiative, in collaboration with WaterAid, IRC and Itad are running a webinar on Tuesday, 8th September, 12:00 GMT.

This webinar brings 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 will be chaired by Louisa Gosling, WaterAid. There will be two presentations followed by time for discussion by the participants.
