The African Ministers’ Council on Water and Water for Africa through Leadership and Institutional Support (WALIS) have developed the Lessons Learned Series, which examines emerging experiences, knowledge, opportunities, and challenges of African-led WASH policy development and implementation. The Series also identifies individual country solutions that others can replicate, with a focus on COVID-19 response mechanisms.
In Mozambique, WALIS supported the National Directorate of Water Supply and Sanitation (DNAAS) to develop the National Water and Sanitation Information System (SINAS). SINAS is a database which provides reliable WASH data at the central, provincial and district levels. SINAS is now used to help stop the spread of COVID-19 infections.
