This short video illustrates the challenge of technology in WASH and how the Technology Applicability Framework (TAF) provides a systematic and participatory way of assessing and adopting technology innovation at scale, for services that last.
Cheap and affordable solutions that can provide sustained access to WASH services are within reach, yet very few of these have been implemented effectively. Despite the technological leaps achieved in the last few decades, progress towards improved access to WASH services, particularly in many rural areas, is at a staggering low.
WASHTech, a 3 year EU funded research project, has developed a systematic and participatory way of assessing and adopting technology innovation that effectively takes the poorest of the world a step closer to expanding their life choices and opportunities for development.
