USAID Releases New Standard Indicators for Water and Sanitation. Globalwaters.org, May 2019.
USAID uses standard indicators to aggregate the Agency’s work across all programs and report on outcomes. Previously, the focus was on reporting results for first time access to or improved service quality of water and sanitation services.
During the last strategy period (2013–2018), 22.4 million people gained access to new or improved water services and 15.6 million people gained access to new or improved sanitation services.
While the focus on delivering water and sanitation services remains core to our work, the Plan adds an emphasis on sustainability through the inclusion of DR1 and DR4.
To better capture and report on achievements under these development results, USAID has developed three new standard indicators:
- Number of water and sanitation sector institutions strengthened to manage water resources or improve water supply and sanitation services as a result of U.S. Government (USG) assistance
- Value of new funding mobilized to the water and sanitation sectors as a result of USG assistance
- Number of people benefiting from the adoption and implementation of measures to improve water resources management as a result of USG assistance
