Monitoring and evidence
The evidence as a result of monitoring the inputs and outputs provided by the UN-Water Global Analysis and Assessment of Sanitation and Drinking-Water (GLAAS), TrackFin and WHO/UNICEF Joint Monitoring Programme (JMP) helps to guide decision-makers at the local, national and global levels. The information provided by JMP, GLAAS and TrackFin is also a key component of measuring the success of the Sustainable Development Goals.
