The Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene Partnerships and Learning for Sustainability (WASHPaLS) team is pleased to invite you to a special presentation of the SanPlan tool, a free web-based application for employing publicly available spatial data to guide sanitation programming.

The WASHPaLS team designed this tool based on learnings from its multi-year research activities on factors that influence sanitation program success. SanPlan features overlays of multiple datasets in a way that allows users to explore and query spatial information to improve location targeting, budgeting, and program design. It also includes a customized map layer developed to classify communities and geographic areas into three typologies of accessibility -- rural remote, rural on-road, and rural mixed -- which can be used for determining the type of sanitation intervention most suitable for a particular area.
