The SKAT Foundation has produced a two-page leaflet explaining the Technology Applicability Framework (TAF)*, which the WASHTech project is developing. The TAF is currently being tested together with sector stakeholders in Burkina Faso, Ghana, and Uganda. A final version will be available by 2013.
The TAF helps the user decide if a WASH
technology is sustainable and applicable – or not – in
the specific context of the user. The framework
also indicates risks and supportive factors that
may affect the technology introduction process in
the user’s chosen context.
The leaflet describes the four steps of the TAF process: screening, assessment, presentation of results, and interpretation.
* previously called the Technology Assessment Framework
