Description of the Project:

In 2014, the Government of Liberia published the country’s first Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) Sector Performance Report (SPR). This report brought key information for decision-making to the second WASH Joint Sector Review in May 2014. Skat Consulting Ltd. supported a team of Liberian authors from the key WASH Ministries and Agencies. The process kicked off by galvanizing interest in the report, outlining a basic structure and selecting authors. Over the subsequent two months, chapters were drafted, reviewed and revised. The support team spent time with all of the authors on a one to one basis to improve the structure and content of the different chapters, and helped to find and repackage data from the Institute of Statistics and Geo-Information Services. Following a retreat, where the chapters were peer reviewed, a final draft report was prepared. This was circulated to management/assistant minister in the responsible agencies. The final draft was printed in time for the Joint Sector Review.
