Abstract: This document discusses the advantages and disadvantages of three indicators to measure behavioural outcomes associated with household water treatment and storage: volume of sales, volume of liters of water treated, and percent of households practicing effective water management. It suggests that the last indicator may be the most adequate for capturing technologies available for household water treatment. The measures proposed to capture the indicator are more effective than self-reports, as they are based on spot-checks or simple water quality tests when water is treated with a chlorine solution. Yet, collecting data on psycho-social determinants of practices will be useful to program managers. Modifications to the questions to capture treatment practices using solar disinfection are also suggested. The document ends with additional input provided by participants from an e-conference organized to discuss the paper.
