Investing in the right technologies in a given context is an important step towards improving sustainability of WASH services. The Technology Applicability Framework (TAF) responds to an identified need for a tool to help decision makers assess if a water or sanitation technology is applicable to their situation. The TAF has undergone three rounds of testing in Uganda, Ghana and Burkina Faso and can be used by national governments, local government, donors and NGOs for both water and sanitation technologies.
