DFID/PwC WASH Procurement Matrix

To Whom It May Concern

I am looking for contributions to a DFID funded, PwC led initiative to identify carbon friendly WASH technologies that can be easily procured and purchased/or re-built, in developing countries. We have already identified over 200 technologies and their respective vendors and will release a rough version of our decision-making tool/interactive website on SuSana shortly, for comment and further contribution.

We look forward to receiving your contributions and communicating with the SuSanA community as our project develops.

Kind regards.

Re: DFID/PwC WASH Procurement Matrix

Dear Joshua,

This sounds very interesting, but could you please spell out all of the acronyms?

I think you will find relevant, simple, replicable solutions on my blog, inodoroseco.blogspot.com.

Best wishes,

Re: DFID/PwC WASH Procurement Matrix

Easy:

DFID = The Department for International Development (DFID) is a United Kingdom government department responsible for administering overseas aid. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Department_for_International_Development

PwC = PricewaterhouseCoopers (doing business as PwC) is a multinational professional services network headquartered in London, United Kingdom. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PricewaterhouseCoopers

WASH you know but just to point out our nice Wikipedia article for it: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WASH

I find Wikipedia really useful to look up acronyms.

We also have this page of acronyms for sanitation: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_abbreviations_used_in_sanitation

Hope this helps,
Elisabeth
