Activating the UWASNET Technology Working Group.

WASHTech seeks to utilize all opportunities to embed the Technology Assessment Framework in the Water, Sanitation and Hygiene sector under its learning alliance approach. Fortunately, the Uganda Water sector has a vast array of such windows of opportunity. The Uganda Water and Sanitation Ngo Network (UWASNET), the umbrella organization for all NGOs in the WASH sector set up thematic working groups to foster learning for change among the civil society organizations in the sector. Such as Technology, Functionality, Good governance, Software thematic working groups.

However the technology thematic working group is underutilized. In 2011, the working group implemented a few of activities including exposure visits to a sodis water treatment plants, participated in  the FLOW software capacity building training and presented their experiences during the CSO Forum 2011.

WASHTech seeks to revamp the group and build on its existing works and plans of the working group to facilitate learning, profiling NGO WASH technology activities.

NETWAS Uganda the chair of the working group will organize a planning meeting in early to forecast the future of the working group, especially on what to do differently and better.

    Ola! Jonmii,
    Speaking of which, Environmental technology (envirotech) or green technology (greentech) or clean technology (cleantech) is the utilization of the environmental science to preserve our natural environment and resources, and to reduce the negative effects of human activity. Environmental technology is centered on sustainable development.
    Great Job!
