WASHTech aimed to strengthen sector capacity to make effective investment in new and innovative WASH technologies, through research and development of a framework which assesses their applicability and potential sustainability risks. IRC led the consortium of national and international research partners. The WASHTech project was funded by the EC FP7- Africa research programme and took place in Burkina Faso, Ghana and Uganda from 2011 to 2013. The three institutions spearheading the project in Ghana were: TREND/ RCN Ghana, KNUST, and WaterAid Ghana.
The project tools: Technology Applicability Framework - TAF, Guidance on the Technology Introduction Process - TIP, and other project outputs are freely available to sector players through the washtechnologies website, hosted by RWSN.
