This handbook provides guidelines on the design of sanitation programmes for UNICEF water and sanitation field officers. It first examines the broader context of sanitation evaluations and of UNICEF sanitation policies. This is followed by a review of methods and devices needed to guide policy development in a participatory way (being a catalyst). The following chapters deal with six major strategic categories: community identification; community participation; technology options; financing; institutional arrangements; and political will. Each of these chapters provides brief examples of promising experiences. There are appendices containing sample participatory methods, a sample programme-design process, and sample resources for workshops and meetings. Following field tests in Zambia, and possibly in Bolivia and Egypt, a final version of the handbook is due for publication in 1999.
