The USAID/West Africa Municipal Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Activity (MuniWASH) is a five-year project currently operating in Benin and Cote d’Ivoire, which is funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and implemented by Tetra Tech. MuniWASH supports municipalities to provide sustainable water and sanitation services to vulnerable and underserved populations in urban areas. Early on MuniWASH used a participatory and inclusive approach to shortlist 20 municipalities as potential partners of the project.
The approach included a range of inputs, from stakeholder consultation to the development of location criteria and data collection, to preselect ten municipalities in each country. In addition, through the preselection approach, MuniWASH learned lessons about national level data sources for the water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) sector and noted gaps in disaggregated municipal WASH data.
