Pre-Launch: WASH technologies for sustainable services
Friday, April 12, 2013 from 9:30 AM to 11:00 AM (CEST)
Addis Ababa, Ethiopia
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Sustainable WASH services can only be achieved if the technology used to provide services is sound enough for the specific context. Too often, however, water and sanitation services stop because the WASH technology no longer functions or is too complicated for the context which it’s in.While on the other hand, WASH new technologies are promising to be successful but are not considered. WASHTech, an action-research project, is developing and testing processes and tools to perform context-specific validations of potential WASH technologies. WASHTech also aims to successfully introduce the validated technologies into certain contexts such as countries, districts, or sub-districts. Come and be part of this pre-launch and see how TAF (Technology Applicability Framework) and TIP (Technology Introduction Process) can help you achieve sustainable WASH services.
