News Second JMP Task Force

A Task Force established under the WHO/UNICEF Joint Monitoring Programme (JMP) met in France on 16, 17 and 18 November, to discuss the options and opportunities to enhance drinking-water quality monitoring in the current JMP context and beyond 2015. 

Immediate opportunities to strengthen JMP in this respect included an expansion of the RADWQ approach, the testing of new measurement tools in DHS and MICS and an assessment of water quality data collected by national regulators. Beyond 2015, the framework of the recently adopted human right to water and sanitation provides the targets for which indicators will need to be developed.
