This document introduces the TrackFin (tracking financing) initiative—a methodology that tracks financial flows into and throughout the WASH sector. Tracking finance in this way enables a comprehensive understanding of what funding is available for which specific purposes, through what providers and funding channels. Evidence-based policy decisions can then be taken, and interventions more accurately targeted.

This summary document is aimed at decision-makers requiring an overview of the method and what it entails, with a particular focus on the benefits it offers at policy and strategy levels.
