DENVER — On Oct. 5, Water For People, a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing long-lasting, safe drinking water resources and improved sanitation facilities in the developing world, hosted its first Accountability Summit during the 83rd Annual Water Environment Federation Technical Exhibition and Conference (WEFTEC) in New Orleans, according to a press release.
CEO Ned Breslin invited peer organizations, donors and stakeholders to view Water For People’s data, discuss the implications and ask tough questions about the organization’s work.
The data presented at the Accountability Summit was the result of annual monitoring that yielded data and analysis that allows the organization to better evaluate its own work, share results with partners, donors and governments as well as influence partners toward best practices.
“We are putting our data out for all to see, not just to be accountable, but also because we see value in learning from the questions that others might have for us,” said Breslin. “That’s why we have evolved into a data-driven organization. We collect data on hundreds of water and sanitation projects in Africa, Asia, and Latin America, and through this process, our work will continually improve.”
