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.

SamSamWater Climate Tool (precipitation & evaporation)



Local climate data is very important for water studies. However, climate data is not always available or accessible. The SamSamWater Climate Tool uses data from 28800 stations of FAOCLIM to estimate precipitation and evaporation anywhere on Earth.

SamSamWater UTM Zones Tool



The Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM) coordinate system is a method of specifying locations on Earth. When working with a GPS or maps based on the UTM-system, it is necessary to know in which UTM zone you are. This tool displays all UTM grid zones on a map, which enables you to find the correct zone.
