In this issue we focus on how the "data revolution" is changing the water and sanitation sector. An expanding array of local and global data sources are providing a more precise view of water access gaps and disparities. Tracking water and sanitation spending relative to funding needs is bringing greater attention to an under-resourced sector. Mobile phones are helping customers flag issues for water utilities and monitor water quality. Advances in collecting and sharing satellite data are helping communities build resilience to droughts and floods.
Water Currents is produced biweekly by USAID’s E3 Water Office. Each issue contains recent news and articles on water sector issues, partner and donor updates, latest sector research, and a special focus on one topic. Please provide your feedback and suggestions by contacting the email@example.com.
