Thanks for pointing that out. I have fixed the link and Elisabeth has re-posted the updated document on SuSanA.

Description

The Water Project Toolkit application (WPT App) provides guidance and information on best practices for implementing water and sanitation projects in the developing world.
The WPT App gives access to the analytical tools necessary to evaluate the specific context, issues and needs in your project area, as well as operational checklists to guide you throughout the project lifecycle.

Use the WPT navigator to quickly find appropriate advice on your project by selecting your sector (Water Resource management, Basic services, Municipal services, Agriculture, Energy and Sector performance) and project phase (Programming, Identification, Formulation, Implementation and Evaluation-Audit).
Once it is installed, the WPT is also accessible offline.

The Water Project Toolkit (WPT) aims to promote the sustainable development of the water sector, and is an example of the European Commission’s commitment to provide sound operational guidance to help improve the quality and effectiveness of sustainable water development projects. Based on internationally agreed principles, the WPT is a guide for those involved in developing the water sector, which helps them apply sound and environmentally sustainable practices in areas such as institutional management, socio-economic and public governance, finance, the environment, education, capacity building, communications and technology. It consists of step-by-step suggestions for the planning, identification, formulation, implementation and evaluation of water-development activities.

The first edition of the WPT was reviewed by the European Union Water Initiative (EUWI) and published by the European Commission in 1998 as a proposed strategic approach, and marked a turning point in water-related development cooperation. This second edition focuses on the evolution in international development cooperation and water sector policies over the past ten years.

The WPT is a living document which is available online at www.aquaknow.net.

The App was developed by the Joint Research Centre with EuropeAid.]]>

Honestly we produce them on an ad hoc basis depending on the reports released and the bandwidth of the KM team. Still, we hope to produce 1 or 2 / quarter at the minimum. I will continue sharing them as they are produced on this forum and if anybody has thoughts/suggestions let me know.

Best,

Just wanted to mention that iDE's Knowledge Management team has prepared some great summaries of key sector reports. These are a great way for people to learn about these reports if they don't have the time to read the document in their entirety.

Please find them here - http://www.susana.org/en/resources/library/details/2154

Re: NaWaTech Compendium of Technologies avaliable on SuSanA library - by: Katie http://forum.susana.org/forum/categories/89-new-publications-books-articles-partner-newsletters-journals-blogs-websites-videos/10241-nawatech-compendium-of-technologies-avaliable-on-susana-library#11300 http://forum.susana.org/forum/categories/89-new-publications-books-articles-partner-newsletters-journals-blogs-websites-videos/10241-nawatech-compendium-of-technologies-avaliable-on-susana-library#11300
Thanks a lot for your feedback on the NaWaTech compendium. You are right, this compendium tries to focus more on the specific case of India and inspire practitioners what sustainable solutions might be possible in this context, rather than being a detailed engineering manual for the various technologies (for this other sources exist). As Lucia mentioned, we are working on a revision, so any comments are highly appreciated (and we’ll try to include a slightly smaller file).

Unfortunately our project website (www.nawatech.net) is still offline; however, it should be fixed by the end of the week. I invite you all to check it then, as other project reports and news will be regularly posted there. For example, we are planning a NaWaTech conference in India towards the end of next year. Furthermore, you can find information abour our NaWaTech Community of Practice on Facebook (www.facebook.com/pages/NaWaTech-Communit...tice/362587563828187).

Best regards,
Katie

Am sorry for posting this thanking you rather late for your article which was published in the Africa Water, Sanitation & Hygiene November - December 2014 Vol.9 No.8 edition. But as they say in English – Its better late than never. Am afraid to say I was bogged down by an assignment. Apologies. Is this the way you would have liked us to publish your presentation?

Surprisingly, none of the viewers in the forum commented on Mr. Canaday’s ‘How Do Urine-diverting Dry Toilets Work?
