This book outlines 12 key steps which have been identified and tested on the ground through a learning by doing experience. These steps can be customised to fit different circumstances and tailored to community settings with diverse cultures. The 12 key steps are identified as follows: Preplanning; Capacity building; Baseline data collection and analysis; "Whole System in a Room" multi-stakeholder meeting; Develop a plan and budget; Kebele (larger village) ignition and action; Gott (50-house village) ignition and action; Promoting a range of WASH technology options; WASH institutional ignition, focusing on WASH Friendly Schools; Multiplying the message through communication and media; Supportive supervision, monitoring, and reporting; and Evaluation and rewarding. With this book the Woreda WASH Team can help people change unsafe behaviour and bring about a cultural transformation in basic hygiene and sanitation. Links to more detailed resources, such as training guides, electronic budgeting forms, and suggested baseline and monitoring forms, are included.
