The project worked in partnership with municipal stakeholders in Babati, Tanzania and Nelson Mandela-African Insitute of Science and Technology (a local university) to develop an action plan for Babati’s future sanitation and hygiene solutions, based on an in-depth understanding of current WASH services, a shared vision for equitable and sustainable provision, and due consideration of the local political economy. A participatory approach was a critical cornerstone of the project. Outcome mapping was used for the research into use/research uptake component of the project.

Why was OM chosen?

Outcome mapping was chosen to plan, measure and deliver research into use activities to ensure maximum engagement with key stakeholders - and increase the likelihood that research findings would be taken up.

What was the experience of using OM?

Through building strong relationships with local municipal stakeholders, WaterAid were able to contribute towards a government commissioned town master plan for Babati, Tanzania, covering all aspects of Babati’s future. The master plan draws on their research findings to recommend future approaches to sanitation in Babati.
