This Toolbox comprises a set of tools meant for use by water and sanitation resource centres willing to participate in a process of further improving their performance and their partnerships. The tools are named after the purposes they serve: 1) Diagnostic study; 2) Understanding the resource centre concept; 3) Assessing the potential of a resource centre; 4) Gender scan guideline; 5) Consolidating resource centres; 6) Electronic information services; 7) Evaluating effectiveness of resource centres and their partners; 8) Self-assessment guide; 9) Improving management and control functions; 10) Quality assurance; 11) Impact assessment
Each one of the tools is presented in the Toolbox according to a standard format: a brief presentation, its target, when and how to use it, how the tool was developed, its conceptual framework and the reference used as a basis for its preparation. The guiding principle is that the tools are helpful instruments, which do not require extensive budgets for their application and, most important, which result in a learning process.
