Background 

This webinar introduces two new tools that will help to select water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) technologies that keep working. The first, the Technology Applicability Framework (TAF), has been extensively tested and is now available on http://www.washtechnologies.net. A second, complementary tool, the Technology Introduction Process (TIP) provides guidance on the roles and activities needed for successful scaling up of technologies. 

The TAF manual, questionnaires, Technology Introduction Process guidelines and other key publications are provided as public domain and can be accessed through http://www.washtechnologies.net. This resource base also provides a platform for sharing experiences on the application of the TAF after completion of the WASHTech project in December 2013.
