Compendium of Accessible WASH Technologies - to improve the accessibility of household WASH facilities (WaterAid, WEDC, SHARE)

Three big names in water, sanitation and hygiene, WEDC, WaterAid and SHARE (Sanitation and Hygiene Applied Research for Equity), have developed a useful publication on WASH facilities for the disables. Authored by Hazel Jones and Jane Wilbur, 2014, the publication is titled: Compendium of accessible WASH technologies.

The compendium gives low-cost technologies, an aspect that is favorable for the poor developing countries, and is designed to make WASH facilities easily accessible to the disabled people. It can also be used by the aged people. The main focus of the publication is on the household facilities.

The most attractive aspect of the compendium is that, it gives high resolution pictures (provided the high resolution version is accessed), and attractive, colorful line diagrams, thus increasing the usefulness of the publication.

The compendium can be accessed at www.wateraid.org/accessibleWASHtechnologies

Re: Compendium of accessible WASH technologies

Dear All,

Thought I would share this with you.

WaterAid and WEDC developed an images-based compendium (photos, drawings and diagrams) for use at community level in rural sub-Saharan Africa.
The compendium provides information for households on how to make their latrines and other WASH facilities more accessible and user-friendly.

Free to download from: [url=http://]http://www.wateraid.org/~/media/Files/Global/compendium-of-accessible-WASH-technologies.pdf [/url]

This publication and all images in it are also free to download: www.inclusivewash.org.au/

Best regards,

Doreen
