SIASAR: Rural Water and Sanitation Information System

SIASAR – Rural Water and Sanitation Information System – is a joint initiative launched by the governments of Honduras, Nicaragua and Panama, with the strategic purpose of having a basic, updated and comparable information tool on the rural water supply and sanitation services in place in a given country.

SIASAR is an open system that can be applied in other countries provided they have a similar water and sanitation context to SIASAR founding countries (low levels of coverage, limited self-sustainability, little information, etc.). Currently SIASAR includes Honduras, Nicaragua, Panama, the Dominican Republic, Costa Rica, Oaxaca (Mexico), Peru, Bolivia, Colombia and Paraguay.
