Abstract: It is the goal of arche noVa to provide sustainable WASH services in rural areas. In addition to the construction of locally adapted water systems and sanitary facilities the major challenge lies in the building up and establishing of competent WASH committees. Only the upkeep and maintenance of any physical infrastructure combined with securing the support from the community and instilling a sense of ownership for the project within the community ensure the sustainability of the projects in the long term. These WASH committees should be comprised of elected or appointed community members and are mandated to operate and maintain the WASH facilities. arche noVa has developed a tool, which, over a period of time, monitors and evaluates whether a WASH committee is functioning and equipped with the necessary skills and knowledge to carry out their duties and responsibilities. This system measures the performances of the committee with detailed indicators.
