M&E Note 1: About the Civil Society WASH Fund

The Civil Society Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) Fund is a $103 million investment by Australia’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) that is supporting 13 Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) to implement 29 WASH projects in 19 countries throughout Africa, Asia and the Pacific (see Figure 1) over four years to 2018. The objective of the Fund is to enhance the health and quality of life of the poor and vulnerable by improving sustainable access to water, sanitation and hygiene.  

The Monitoring, Evaluation and Review Panel (MERP) is reviewing the projects, using data from monitoring visit reports and the Fund’s M&E system, to prepare a number of ‘M&E Notes’ that cover the following topics:

• About the CS WASH Fund (M&E Note 1) 
• An analysis of key Fund actors (M&E Note 2) 
• An assimilation of WASH approaches and strategies across the Fund (M&E Note 3) 
• An aggregation of performance metrics including: notable achievements; progress/completion of deliverables; realisation of expected changes; and early evidence of impacts (M&E Notes 4 and 5) 
• An analysis of how the Fund has changed since the inception phase and implications for achieving Fund objectives (M&E Note 6) 
• An executive summary of monitoring visit reports (M&E Note 7) 
• Analysis of key themes of interest to stakeholders including sanitation and hygiene behaviour change (M&E Note 8), and gender and social inclusion (M&E Note 9).
