Water-related challenges in developing countries are not limited to water supply and sanitation services. Water shortages experienced by users across the region is plagued with chronic cycles of flooding and drought that are increasing in frequency and severity, in part exacerbated by climate change, and coupled with population growth, significant upland watershed destruction, and non-equitable distributed of water resources.

There is the need in improving access to water, increasing community capacity to manage and better use water resources, improving water supply infrastructure in arid and semi-arid areas, improving water sanitation and hygiene practices, as well as protecting watersheds.

Course Objectives

At the end of course participants should be able to:

  • Evaluate the spatial data requirements in Water Sanitation and Hygiene
  • Use GIS and RS as a tool for monitoring WASH projects Activities
  • Assess spatial data availability
  • Understand the importance of Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDI) in WASH programs
  • Use participatory GIS (PGIS) at the community level
  • Carry out water and sanitation modeling using GIS
  • Collect data using Mobile data gathering tools
  • Carry out basic data analysis using statistical software
  • Design and implement their own GIS projects that integrate remote sensing data, GPS-based field information in a proper geospatial framework
