There are many technologies that can be used to improve WASH services in developing countries. But what works where? How much will it cost, will the system last? And how are services going to be maintained? IRC will be presenting four innovative tools to tackle these questions at the Aquatech Trade Exhibition in Amsterdam(5-8 November).
IRC will be showcasing the WASHCost Calculator, the Technology Applicability Framework, Qualitative Information System and SMARTer WASH.
Using mobile phone technology and web-based applications, these innovative, easy-to-use tools help sector actors plan for and monitor the sustainability of WASH services.
Aquatech is the world’s leading trade exhibition for process, drinking and waste water. It is organised in combination with the International Water Week Conference in Amsterdam (4-6 November), which focuses on ‘Integrated Water Solutions for a green economy’.
The International Water Association (IWA), the Netherlands Water Partnership, International Water Conferences (IWC) and Amsterdam RAI are the organizers of the International Water Week Amsterdam.
