The monitoring and evaluation (M&E) Guidelines and Framework presented in this document aim to encourage stakeholders in the rural sanitation and hygiene sector to take a more comprehensive, comparable, and people-focused approach to monitoring and evaluation. This document provides guidelines on the monitoring and evaluation of rural sanitation and hygiene, and presents an M&E framework that outlines core elements and features for reporting on progress towards the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals sanitation target, while also encouraging learning and accountability. The intention is to provide guidelines and details on useful and progressive approaches to monitoring rural sanitation and hygiene, from which a range of rural sanitation and hygiene duty bearers and practitioners – including governments, implementation agencies, development partners, and service providers – can select and use those most appropriate to their needs.
