Mapping of water, sanitation and hygiene sustainability tools

This working paper contains the findings of a mapping of WASH sustainability tools currently in use, as well as the outcomes of a survey looking into demand: in short assessing the current state of the market for sustainability tools and identifying the gaps.

The assessment included a review of over 220 tools and presents the 25 tools with clear content and a methodology for understanding, measuring, or predicting sustainability in short practical summary sheets (1-pagers). These sheets can also be downloaded individually here .

This working paper complements an earlier Triple-S working paper that focused on five tools used by development partners to assess programmatic sustainability
( Boulenouar et al., 2013 ). The information presented in both working papers was the subject of a two part webinar series hosted by Global Water Challenge (GWC), WASH Advocates, Rural Water Supply Network (RWSN), IRC, and Aguaconsult in March 2014.

The research described in this paper was carried out by Aguaconsult, an implementing partner of IRC in Triple-S.

 

Individual summaries of 25 of the WASH sustainability assessment tools have also been published.

Abstract

This working paper contains the findings of a mapping of WASH sustainability tools currently in use, as well as the outcomes of a survey looking into demand: in short assessing the current state of the market for sustainability tools and identifying the gaps.

The assessment included a review of over 220 tools and presents the 25 tools with clear content and a methodology for understanding, measuring, or predicting sustainability in short practical summary sheets (1-pagers). These sheets can also be downloaded individually here .

This working paper complements an earlier Triple-S working paper that focused on five tools used by development partners to assess programmatic sustainability
( Boulenouar et al., 2013 ). The information presented in both working papers was the subject of a two part webinar series hosted by Global Water Challenge (GWC), WASH Advocates, Rural Water Supply Network (RWSN), IRC, and Aguaconsult in March 2014.

The research described in this paper was carried out by Aguaconsult, an implementing partner of IRC in Triple-S.

 

Individual summaries of 25 of the WASH sustainability assessment tools have also been published.
