This paper describes the implementation of a sustainability monitoring framework within an ongoing regional WASH project in nine countries in West and Central Africa. The paper describes and draws lessons in relation to implementation processes such as development of a common monitoring framework and the procurement of independent parties to conduct sustainability checks of project outputs and outcomes. The paper goes on to describe how based on these lessons and the wider discussion about the role of project monitoring systems in developing countries, project stakeholders have decided to move towards an approach that seeks to strengthen and use country monitoring systems, forge stronger links to other regional and global monitoring processes and develop an advocacy strategy aimed at leveraging increased financial contributions by government.
