WASH Tools

Practical tools and guidance for technical staff within national governments, NGOs and donor agencies, as well as the experts and consultants supporting them.

What's included

For over a decade IRC has been working on the challenges of providing WASH services that last. Here we're bringing together the tools and guidance we've developed with our partners in some 20 countries around the world. A few of the tools can be used 'off the shelf'; most provide a useful model or starting point for more tailored solutions. Our work is on-going and the collection is being continually updated and refined.

Why use the tools

The tools can be used in various ways:

  • To lead sector-level change processes to ensure sustainable WASH services

  • To analyse what's working and what's not in the current system

  • To design solutions to specific service delivery challenges

The information has been divided into the nuts and bolts of delivering a sustainable service and the pathways to delivering the type of broad-based, sector level change needed to reach the SDG targets.
