The WASH Operational Response Plan provides partners with a general framework to design and cost their projects. Its objective is inter-sectoral planning, and it contains only a summary of the WASH strategy and implementation guidance. More details about the WASH response implementation modalities must be agreed by SAG and gathered in a document called the WASH Strategic Operational Framework (SOF).
Beyond strategic planning and HRP/SOF development, the WASH cluster / sector is committed to deliver services to the beneficiaries with the highest possible quality. The WASH cluster partners must set up the response's Quality Assurance System, agreeing on quality targets for both response inputs and outputs, monitoring modalities and collective ways of addressing quality issues.
HRP and SOF contains targets against which WASH response can be monitored. Once strategy has been defined, the WASH coordination platform elaborates the WASH response's Monitoring plan, which contains the indicators that will be used to monitor the response, the monitoring modalities and the data analysis plan.
