This note provides practical guidance on how to use SIT, the Sanitation Investment Tracker. SIT is a suite of applications powered by Akvo FLOW to track investment and associated expenditure in sanitation at household level.

Mobile phone and web-based ICT applications are increasingly being developed to support the development of WASH services. While there has not yet been much innovation in the sanitation sector, a lot can be learned and transferred from recent developments in the water sector. This note gives an overview of the types of apps (mainly prototypes) that have been developed so far in the sanitation sector and identifies the need for further development of ICT tools. It accompanies the SHARE-funded Sanitation Investment Tracker (SIT) app. For further information please see: - Note 1: An introduction to SIT (http://www.shareresearch.org/Resource/Details/sit_note_1) - SIT step-by-step user guide (www.shareresearch.org/Resource/Details/sit_user_guide)

The Mtumba sanitation promotion approach was developed in Tanzania which focuses on improving the standard of latrines and empowering the community to ensure sustainability of the approach outcomes once the implementation project is complete. This document summarises the findings from an evaluation of the health and behaviour change outcomes, costs and impact of the Mtumba approach in three regions of Tanzania, to determine whether the approach could be scaled up to other regions.
