David Schaub-Jones of SeeSaw talks to Development Workshop about new ICT tools for water and sanitation monitoring.  David presented several innovative technologies using simple low-cost cell phones. However he warns of the dangers of only focusing on the new technology and not paying sufficient attention to what the data gets used for, how the provision of data can actually change the dynamics of the supply of services, how reliable the data is and who will continue to provide it once once the novelty value of the technology has worn off.
