Scaling up the FACET approach for use by the Swiss Water & Sanitation Consortium
Aug / 2020 to Mar / 2021

In 2020, convinced by the FACET tools developed by Tdh, EAWAG and CartONG since 2016 (available here), the SWSC decided to adapt them for use by all consortium member NGOs for their WASH risk evaluations in health facilities & schools. CartONG therefore supported the adaptation of the tools to the SWSC needs, as well as a series of webinars to help the NGOs discover the tools and also - for those that were not big users of Mobile Data Collection - to learn how to apply it to their field data collections for FACET. Beyond this, a hotline was also offered to the consortium members to support them in their implementation, as well as to cover the local adaptations that were necessary of the global forms.

Lastly, a project began to help set up the SWSC tools associated with their reporting needs on WASH, on health facilities and schools, but also communities. A process is therefore being built for consortium members to capture their reporting information and also to compile these in online PowerBI dashboards. Further support will be provided in 2021 to the consortium.
