The enabling environment (EE) for sanitation is the policy, capacity and institutional and financial framework necessary for sustaining and replicating large-scale sanitation programmes. A positive EE builds the attitudes, capacity and practices for effective and efficient functioning of organizations and individuals. UNICEF’s WASH strategy emphasizes improving the enabling environment for sanitation. UNICEF country offices have identified the following six institutional issues as most challenging and six tools have been developed which help monitor the EE for WASH and one of them is: regional monitoring mechanisms. Because there is growing attention to monitoring the EE for WASH, this Web Page provides an overview of the main tools for this purpose that enables large-scale sanitation programmes to be developed and sustained. Specifically, regions are developing monitoring systems to track progress against regional political commitments in WASH. Regions and countries in those areas can differ widely and have different priorities. (Link)
