The first section of this working paper describes the Life-Cycle Cost Approach (LCCA) and the cost components required for ensuring services that last. The second section reviews different offline and online Decision Support Tools (DST)s developed and used by international organisations in the WASH sector during the last 10 years. The third section summarises gaps in disaggregated costs that have been identified and used by these different tools. Considerations for design and use of future tools in the water and sanitation sector are explored in the last section of the working paper. Annex 1 describes the different cost categories required to provide sustainable services as identified in the life-cycle cost approach [authors' abstract].
