Explanation


SamSamWater makes information on water and sanitation easy to find and accessible for all. This page contains a database with practical information, data and (GIS)maps.

We believe information should be shared to make water and sanitation projects more successful. The information in the database is gathered from numerous sources, such as research institutes, companies, NGOs and government organisations.

Do you have information we can integrate into this database, or if you have comments or questions, please contact us!

SSWM Toolbox



The Sustainable Sanitation and Water Management Toolbox is an open-source capacity development tool for the local level, linking water management, sanitation and agriculture.
Focussing on the human influence on the water and nutrient cycle, it presents solutions for a sustainable use, treatment and reuse of water resources.
The Toolbox aims at capacitating people not only with knowledge, but also with application skills. It provides both help in project planning and implementation, focuses on technologies (hardware) and behavioural change approaches (software), and compiles the relevant further readings, links, exercises etc. for each topic. In that way, it is not a reinvention of the wheel, but the long needed overview on the host of approaches and technologies in the water and sanitation sector. The Toolbox contains also a large library, a glossary, a Train-the-Trainer's section topped by downloadable and adjustable PowerPoint presentations on specific topics. It is open source and for free – but quality approved. Today, the Toolbox is used as online resource for both, learning and teaching. This concept is coupled with training courses and workshops based on a worldwide network.

Technology notes


WaterAid, WaterAid (2007)

These technology notes have been prepared following many general enquiries for technical information having been received by WaterAid over the years. Their purpose is to give an outline of the technologies used by WaterAid on long-term development projects in Africa and Asia, and to show alternatives which might be appropriate in different circumstances. It may be possible to determine from the notes the technology which would be appropriate in a particular location. If it is proposed to proceed with the design and construction of a project using any of the principles set out in these notes, it is strongly recommended that further details be obtained from a specialist or from the reference books which are listed at the end of the relevant section.
