What is its purpose?

This indicator is one of ECHO's Key Outcome Indicators (KOI). It is a composite indicator (consisting of several sub-indicators) assessing the target group members' satisfaction with the extent to which their basic WASH needs are met and the extent to which they follow essential hygiene practices.

How to Collect and Analyse the Required Data

According to ECHO's guidance, the indicator's value should be calculated as the average percentage of the following indicators' value:

  > % of population considering that their basic WASH needs are met

  > % of population with adequate hygiene practices (according to SPHERE standards on appropriate use and regular maintenance of facilities and on hand washing)

 

A guidance on collecting and analysing data on the first indicator is provided here

 

The second indicator's value should be calculated as the average of the following sub-indicators:

  > use of sanitation facility - see guidance here

  > maintenance of sanitation facility - see guidance here

  > hand washing with soap/ash - see guidance here

Important Comments

1) Disaggregate the data by sex and specific vulnerable groups, such as people with disability.
