Compendium of Accessible WASH Technologies - update

WaterAid are seeking to update and/or expand the Compendium of Accessible WASH Technologies (available at this link) which sets out accessible designs for household WASH facilities in a rural context.   

Many people have difficulties using standard WASH facilities because of their age, disability, or other health conditions. Adaptations to standard designs can make a big difference to ease of access and use. The Compendium has been designed to help WASH practitioners discuss different accessible options directly with people concerned or with their carers. It aims to provide enough information to help households and local masons decide which adaptations will be most relevant, with approximate details of cost and complexity.  

In developing a new version, WaterAid would value your feedback on how the Compendium could be updated, expanded and improved upon. They would like to hear from you on how a new version of the Compendium could be developed to help the WASH sector to progress in providing accessible WASH for all. Your feedback through this survey page would be much appreciated:https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/HYTP3ZC
