Video: Introducing SanPlan webinar
The Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene Partnerships and Learning for Sustainability (WASHPaLS) team provided a special presentation of the SanPlan tool, a free web-based application for employing publicly available spatial data to guide sanitation programming. The WASHPaLS team designed this tool based on learnings from its multi-year research activities on factors that influence sanitation program success.
SanPlan features overlays of multiple datasets in a way that allows users to explore and query spatial information to improve location targeting, budgeting, and program design. It also includes a customized map layer developed to classify communities and geographic areas into three typologies of accessibility — rural remote, rural on-road, and rural mixed — which can be used for determining the type of sanitation intervention most suitable for a particular area.
