Decentralisation is built on the assu mption that decentralized governme nts are more knowledgeable about and responsive to the needs of the poor. This article ex amines the role of local governments in Kenya and the ways in which they make their decisions about the allocation of resources to deliver water and sanitation services. Two major challenges are identified: i) lack of data that accurately reveal which areas are most in need; and ii) inadequate instruments for planning, monitoring and evaluation. In tackling previous shortcomings, this study i) adopts a new specific appr oach for data collection at community level, and ii) exploits these data through simple composite indicator s as policy tools that assist local government with decision-making. It concludes that accurate and compre hensive data are the basis of effective targeting and prioritization, which are fundamental to sector planning.
