Water For People-Honduras Leads on Monitoring & Everyone Forever

Water For People-Honduras participated in two very important meetings recently. One meeting was of the National SIASAR Committee (SIASAR stands for National Rural Water and Sanitation System and is a monitoring system being implemented nationally in Honduras, Nicaragua, and Panama). In this meeting the quality of information that the system captures and the results of the pilots on sanitation survey collection were discussed. Second, Water For People participated in the monthly meeting of the Northern Chapter of the Water and Sanitation Network of Honduras (RASHON). In this case the host was the water service provider of San Pedro Sula, Aguas de San Pedro. The meetings are intergral to the work of Water For People-Honduras because they are opportunities for our staff to provide leadership on the importance of comprehensive monitoring (SIASAR meeting) and promote Everyone Forever with other sector organizations in Honduras (RASHON meeting).

Water For People-Honduras is taking a lead role in shaping the national monitoring tool for the water and sanitation sector, SIASAR. This has included Water For People-Honduras’s Country Director and Monitoring Specialist taking part in a SIASAR update workshop in Panama, sponsored by the World Bank. As a follow up to this workshop, Water For People-Honduras is participating in a national-level committee that has been formed to implement SIASAR in Honduras. Water For People is specifically advocating for improvement of public institution and household level sanitation monitoring in SIASAR, by using Water For People’s FLOW monitoring indicators as a basis.

On the Road to National Coverage

The movement, known in Honduras as Para Todos Por Siempre, now includes 9 other nonprofits in addition to Water For People-Honduras. Collectively this group is planning to implement Everyone Forever in 17 municipalities across Honduras. The group has the ambitious vision to develop and systematize Water For People’s Everyone Forever approach so that it can be shared and adopted with the national government and other partners to eventually reach Everyone Forever throughout all of Honduras. In addition to being part of the leadership of the Para Todos Por Siempre movement, Water For People is influencing other organizations by promoting monitoring and helping communities and municipalities plan for long-term costs of operating, maintaining, and even one day replacing water systems.
