AbstractSince 1990, WHO and UNICEF have collaborated to track progress on global water and sanitation goals through the Joint Monitoring Programme (JMP) for Water Supply and Sanitation. The JMP is the official UN mechanism charged with monitoring progress towards the Millennium Development Goals' drinking water and sanitation targets. The first JMP workshop was organized in Nepal in August 2008 jointly by WHO and UNICEF. The second workshop was organized by the WHO Regional Office for South-East Asia, and was supported by UNICEF, the WHO Indonesia Country Office and WHO Headquarters and was held from 27-29 April 2009 in Jakarta, Indonesia. The objective was to support countries in the Region to develop a harmonized and timely data collection and reporting system on water supply and sanitation. Some 40 participants from the water and sanitation sector, the health sector and national statistics offices from India, Indonesia, Maldives, Myanmar, Sri Lanka, Thailand and Timor-Leste attended the three-day workshop.
