Make WASH technology investments last and provide sustainable services for all

WASHTech aimed to strengthen sector capacity to make effective investment in new and innovative WASH technologies, through research and development of a framework which assesses their applicability and potential sustainability risks. 

IRC led the consortium of national and international research partners. The WASHTech project was funded by the EC FP7- Africa research programme and took place in Burkina Faso, Ghana and Uganda from 2011 to 2013.

The project tools: Technology Applicability Framework- TAF, Guidance on the Technology Introduction Process- TIP, and other project outputs are freely available to sector players through the washtechnologies website, hosted by RWSN.
