RiPPLE Information Sheet: Mapping: Spatial thinking


Mapping or 'spatial thinking' is about raising capacity in using information for planning, implementing, monitoring and evaluating WASH - and is therefore a tool that can support the research activities of all the RiPPLE themes. For example, the Governance and Planning theme could use maps to reveal and help explain patterns in access, sustainability and management of WASH across woredas and regions - such as the relationship between water scheme coverage and the actual level of year-round water service provision to households.
