Objectives of SIASAR
Furthermore, the tool meets a series of operational objectives, inter alia:
-Supports planning, coordination and evaluation of the sector’s stakeholder activities.
-Monitors coverage, quality and sustainability of rural water supply and sanitation services.
-Records performance of technical assistance providers, including their logistical limitations.
-Allows transfer of statistics on water and sanitation and cross-checks of information with other sectoral databases as, for instance, those in the fields of health, the environment, social or community development, etc. SIASAR is an open system that can be applied in other countries provided they have a similar rural water and sanitation system to that of SIASAR founding countries (low levels of coverage, limited self-sustainability, little information, etc.)
