UNHCR WASH Monitoring System – Community Level

The UNHCR WASH Monitoring System includes monitoring of WASH conditions at the community level in refugee settings on a monthly basis. All refugee settings should be surveyed on a monthly basis using the Monthly Report Card. Indicators are tracked on the Refugee WASH Dashboard.

  3. Average # litres of safe water available per person per day
  4. % water quality tests at non chlorinated water collection locations with 0 CFU / 100mL
  5. % of water quality tests at chlorinated water collection locations with FRC in the range of 0.2-2.0 mg/L and turbidity < 5 NTU.
  6. Number of persons per latrine/toilet
  7. % of HH with household latrine/toilet (not shared)
