Uses and Utilization of the Dashboard

This dashboard enables the relevant and/or responsible authorities and Planners to identify and screen the WS Systems by size to address pertinent needs and requirements more effectively and efficiently.
For example, planning & implementation of capacity building/skill development programmes cannot be handled in a single plane, as the scale of intervention, strategies and methodology differs according to the size of a WS system. Consequently, smaller systems require multi-skills development interventions to the respective CBOs, whereas, for comparatively larger schemes more specific and special skills development interventions may be required.
This dashboard facilitates the Planners to identify WS systems by size and address the capacity building/skills development needs effectively inappropriate groups.

CBO Location Data

When an office is available, its location will get displayed as the location of the particular CBO.  If not, either the approximate center of the service area or the main reservoir location will be displayed as the CBO location.

Limitations

In the case of non-operational CBOs, the number of connections may be recorded as zero. Such CBOs will then get categorized under CAT 01 in such instances the real size of the WS system will not be exposed.

CBO GRADES

Data Source

Source:                Mobile App
Data Type:          Scheme Data & Status
Data Field:          Water Source
Sub-field:            Year of Construction

Categorization

  • Less than 05 Years
    Less than 05 Years since construction, up to the current year
  • 05 – 10 Years
    Between 5 to 10 years since construction, up to the current year
  • 10-30 Years
    Between 10 to 30 years since construction, up to the current year
  • Over 30 Years
    Over 30 years since construction, up to the current year

Utilization of the Dashboard

With this tool, one could screen the water schemes under different age groups. This would enable Practitioners to acquire data from RWS systems implemented during different periods of time and to utilize the lessons learned in the planning & implementing of new systems.

Researchers could utilize this dashboard to gather information on Social, Technical, Managerial, and Institutional aspects pertaining to CBO-managed WS systems and in general to learn the process of evolution of the sector over the years.

Limitations

The Year of construction of the source (Intake) is used as the basis for assessing the age of a system/CBO. Hence, when this data has not recorded the age of the particular system/CBO will not get displayed.

If the CBO Age is over 70 Years, the Baseline Data System will assume the data as invalid.

RWS COVERAGE

Source:               Mobile App
Data Type:         Management Data
Data Field:          Contact Details of Office Bearers
Sub-fields:          Designation  AND Gender

Categorization

  • Good
    At least one Female Representative holds an Executive Designation (President, Secretary, Treasurer, Asst Secretary, Vice President).
  • Moderate
    At least one Female Representation in the Executive Committee.
  • Poor
    No Female representation in any of the key positions.

Uses and utilization of the Dashboard

This dashboard enables the sector agencies concerned to have an overview of women’s involvement in decision making positions within the community

The relevant and/or responsible agency for the RWS sector could screen out CBOs where there is less or no women’s involvement at the decision-making level and initiate remedial measures to promote and propagate gender sensitiveness to improve the situation.

Location Data

When an office is available, its location will get displayed as the location of the particular CBO.  If not, either the approximate center of the service area or the main reservoir location will be displayed as the CBO location.

Limitations

Incomplete or no records in this data field may lead a particular CBO to be categorized under Poor

Business Diversification

Data Type:         Operation & Maintenance Data
Data Field:         Diversifying the business with income Generation.
Sub-field:           Any activities in the drop-down list

Categorization

  • Yes
    Engaged in one or more Income Generation activities
  • No

Uses and utilization of the Dashboard

This dashboard projects the financial management potential of the CBOs.
It also facilitates the relevant and /or responsible agencies to screen out the CBOs with inadequate or no financial management skills and plan interventions as required.

Location Data

When an office is available, its location will get displayed as the location of the particular CBO.  If not, either the approximate centre of the service area or the main reservoir location will be displayed as the CBO location.

Limitations

CBOs with no records under this data field will get displayed in the NO category
