The SKAT Foundation has produced a four-page leaflet explaining the Technology Applicability Framework (TAF)* and Technology Introduction Process (TIP) Guide, which the WASHTech project is developing.
The TAF has being tested together with sector stakeholders in Burkina Faso, Ghana, and Uganda, while the TIP is undergoing a validation process in all three countries. A final version of the TAF and TIP will be available in 2013.
The TAF helps the user decide if a WASH
technology is sustainable and applicable – or not – in
the specific context of the user. The framework
also indicates risks and supportive factors that
may affect the technology introduction process in
the user’s chosen context.
