Rural water supply and sanitation toolkit for multisector projects (Inglês)

Rural water supply and sanitation (RWSS) is often a high development priority in communities and there are good examples of communities actively participating in the planning, and implementation of RWSS subprojects. However, a persistent challenge is how to ensure the quality and sustainability of the services that these water and sanitation subprojects are designed to provide. Decades of experience have produced a body of knowledge which can be useful and instructive in addressing these issues. This toolkit has been devised to help multi-sector task managers tap into this body of knowledge. The toolkit is divided into the following main sections: Section I - basic principles in RWSS - heightens awareness of sector-specific issues; the Rapid Sector Assessment - provides a broad overview of the critical constraints and opportunities of RWSS service provision, and is used to design the strategy for incorporating RWSS into the multi-sector project; In Section II - Sanitation and Hygiene Promotion - describes how sanitation and hygiene behavior changes can be achieved through promotion, and presents guidelines to design components for rural communities; and, RWSS in the Project Cycle - provides a framework for implementing each stage of the subproject cycle as it relates to RWSS investments.
