The relative scarcity of learning material and the need for ways to assist orientation towards knowledge sharing material is a major challenge. Another challenge is the relative scarcity of overviews or synthesis studies. Both reviews point to the traditional ways of publishing information and how the internet media is not used to its full potential. This calls for more creative on-line dissemination.
Sharing good practices, lessons learned and useful experiences from water and sanitation development project programs and initiatives are important to enhance efficient project development and implementation of water and sanitation projects. This report summarises a review of how, where and to some extent what kind of so-called “best” practices and lessons learned from the water and sanitation community can be found online.
It aims primarily to enhance the understanding of “what is out there” in order to align communications and dissemination strategies accordingly, but can also help programme developers and implementers to find useful information on water supply and sanitation.
