Integrated Water Resource Management - resource for practitioners

Arup   and  FRANK Water  are hosting a webinar on Wednesday 21 October at 11am (BST) to demonstrate the WASH Basins app and digital toolkit.

WASH Basins is a collaborative project between Arup, FRANK Water and two India-based WASH NGOs:  People’s Science Institute   and Samerth Charitable Trust .
 
The WASH Connect IWRM app was recently recognised as one of the  30 Most Inspiring Digital Innovations (MIDI) 2020  .
 
Join us for a live demonstration of the  WASH Basins digital toolkit   – Learn how the app can support both communities and government
agencies to develop accurate assessments of the water situation in a given area and how this data can be used to provide access to safe, sustainable and equitable water and sanitation for some of the world’s most marginalised communities.
 
We will walk through the toolkit’s ‘Six-Stage Process’, explain how the app can be used to capture, analyse and share assessment data, on site and illustrate how the toolkit and app helps bridge the gap between theory and practice.

Re: Integrated Water Resource Management - resource for practitioners

Dear Gleeson and All,

I have briefly looked through the Frank Water site on WASH Basins and i found this to be an impressive innovation, that will contribute positively to the WASH sector not only in India but globally. WASH Basins is a toolkit and app for water sanitation and. Hygiene(WASH) professionals, non- governmental organizations and government agencies working in water and sanitation. The app helps practitioners facilitate safe, sustainable and equitable water and sanitation services that meet the real needs of communities. 

Worldwide access and sustainability of water and sanitation has been a challenge and in order to provide solutions to the various challenges the paradigm of Integrated Water Resource Management has to be applied or used. However, it is too theoretical and technical. The WASH Basins app has therefore been created to bridge the gap between theory and practice of using something fundamental in solving the water crisis. The advantage of using the WASH Basins tool kits is that they can support both communities and government agencies to develop accurate assessments of the water situation in a given area and how the data can be used to provide access to safe, sustainable and equitable water and sanitation for some of the world’s most marginalized communities.

I would like to encourage those who did not attend the webinar to watch the recording and follow through the six-stage process along with the practical tools of data collection, analyzing and sharing in order to understand fully how the app works and how it can be used in order to contribute to the water, hygiene and sanitation improvement.
