Abstract: Indicators are essential to monitor the progress of the Agenda 2030. An indicator summarizes information and helps policy makers to take important decisions regarding the implementation of measures to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). However, this requires data that is not available in many places. In order to fill this data gap, a transect walk with lo-cal stakeholders can contribute to the collection of additional qualitative data. This instrument was applied in San Andrés de Tupicocha, a village in the Peruvian Andes, in order to collect the necessary and missing data for assessing the situation regarding SDG 6.1 on drinking water and SDG 6.2 on sanitation and hygiene. The analysis of this data revealed a deeper insight into the exciting conditions concerning drinking water and sanitation. The integration of the newly gathered data in the evaluation of SDG 6.1 and 6.2 leads to more realistic results in comparison with the exclusive use of statistic data of the Peruvian national census.
