  3. Core questions and indicators for monitoring WASH in schools in the Sustainable Development Goals

    This document presents recommended core questions to support harmonised monitoring of WASH in schools as part of the SDGs.

They are intended for use in national or sub-national facility surveys and census questionnaires. If national and sub-national surveys use the questions and response categories in this guide, it will help to improve survey comparability over time and between countries, as well as harmonise data with the SDG definitions for WASH in schools.
