Project

The 2nd High Level Forum on Aid Effectiveness  in Paris 2005 formulated the Paris Declaration which postulates the development of instruments for better planning, monitoring- and evaluation and for transparent performance assessment of projects in the light of the achievement of the Millenium Goals.

Geo-Solutions developed the GIS-based planning- and monitoring-instuments SIG-OMD for standardized modelling of the access to drinking water on national, regional and local level.They helped optimizing the investments into the sector which after eight years resulted in a higher equality of the peoples access to safe drinking water. These tools support the decentralization process, combine the national top-down process with  bottom-up approaches and help enhancing water governance through the introduction of transparency and trust.
