The electronic toolkit presents a range of new ideas on moving forward with the sanitation and wastewater management agenda to help national and local governments put their sanitation and wastewater sectors on the Millennium Development Goals (MDG) success path. More than 30 specialists from developing countries in Asia and the Pacific contributed case studies. It is ADB's way of getting its Developing Member Country partners to think in innovative ways. The toolkit includes a CD and companion booklet that guides users through the main barriers confronting them: Attitudes and misconceptions about what is and is not possible; Getting policies to work; Changing community behaviour and awareness levels; and Choosing the most suitable technology. The toolkit is loaded with links to the best websites, resources, case studies, and virtually everything about sanitation and wastewater management that planners and managers need to know. It also includes SANEXâ„¢, a high-powered software for assessing and planning sanitation systems in developing countries.
