Water Insecurity Experiences (WISE) Scales
Cross-culturally validated tools to measure water access and use
The WISE Scales enhance and expand the ability to measure problems with water experienced by households and individuals.
Specifically, the Water Insecurity Experiences (WISE) Scales enable scientists, program developers, community leaders, and policy makers to determine the magnitude of water insecurity within and across communities, track its changes over time, inform the development and implementation of targeted policies and programs to improve water security, and measure the effectiveness of various interventions.
