The contribution of the SWA partnership towards progress in the water, sanitation and hygiene sector is tracked through the SWA Results Framework. It allows partners and the Steering Committee to monitor achievements, and to adjust relevant programmes and activities when necessary.
For each of the SWA Objectives listed in the SWA Strategy 2015-2020, the Framework includes expected outcomes and impact, and details the means of verification, such as indicators, sources of data and methods of collecting that data. Indicators in the Framework come from different sources, such as the WHO/UNICEF Joint Monitoring Program for Water Supply, Sanitation and Hygiene (JMP), the UN-Water Global Analysis and Assessment of Sanitation and Drinking-Water (GLAAS), event feedback forms and partner questionnaires.
Every year the SWA Secretariat compiles this data and publishes a Results Framework report in the partnership’s Annual Report.
