Abstract: Water and sanitation (WatSan) programmes are usually implemented over several years and require large amounts of information to be processed, so effective monitoring systems are essential. In this paper we present a support information system (SIS) for monitoring WatSan programmes. A SIS is a database system in which simple interfaces are used to store and process relevant data. Graphical representations are incorporated to facilitate data analysis and provide better realtime responsiveness during the programme implementation phase. The Logical Framework may be used as the starting point to define the tool. Experience has shown that this type of system must be created jointly with professionals working directly on the programme in question. The system was applied to two programmes in Tanzania and found to be suitable for both daytoday monitoring and longterm analysis. The information collected improved the knowledge of researchers, development planners, and staff working on project implementation.
