Encouraging change : sustainable steps in water supply, sanitation and hygiene

The manual looks at ways to enable people to improve their own well-being through better water supply, water use, sanitation and hygiene. It seeks to provide people in small communities which are often by-passed by those bringing new facilities and training, with a structured approach to the process of problem analysis and solution, and to build their confidence and capacity to be the leaders in bringing about change. The manual is aimed at extension workers, and offers tested examples from which they can design their own modules to suit the situation in and demands of different communities. It uses participatory methods which involve all sections of the community and concentrates on changes which can be achieved at minimal cost. However the same modules and techniques can be used also for communities with access to greater funds, giving them the opportunity to consider what options are not just affordable in the short term, but sustainable in the long term.

Abstract

The manual looks at ways to enable people to improve their own well-being through better water supply, water use, sanitation and hygiene. It seeks to provide people in small communities which are often by-passed by those bringing new facilities and training, with a structured approach to the process of problem analysis and solution, and to build their confidence and capacity to be the leaders in bringing about change. The manual is aimed at extension workers, and offers tested examples from which they can design their own modules to suit the situation in and demands of different communities. It uses participatory methods which involve all sections of the community and concentrates on changes which can be achieved at minimal cost. However the same modules and techniques can be used also for communities with access to greater funds, giving them the opportunity to consider what options are not just affordable in the short term, but sustainable in the long term.
