Investing in adequate technologies for sustainable WASH services (2011-2013)

  1. 1. Investing in adequate technologies for sustainable WASH services (2011-2013) Presentation of the TAF to the WASHTech Uganda Core Team, Kampala, 26/08/2011 NETWAS Uganda
  2. 2. Technology Assessment Framework (TAF) The development, field testing and dissemination of the TAF is the heart of WASHTech. Key purposes of the TAF: •Assessment of potential of a specific technology •Guidance for the uptake process (planning, monitoring and analysis of processes to pilot and scale up of technologies) Key users of the TAF: •Local government, national government, action research, donors •NGO and small and medium enterprise (SME), training and academia, informed households
  3. 3. Technology Assessment Framework (TAF) How the TAF is being developed: • Development led by SKAT, in consultation with all project partners and stakeholders in the 3 countries • Development of a TAF concept and a final first draft • The final first draft will be field tested in all 3 countries on technologies that have already been introduced • Amendments based on the field test The concept is still a document in progress.
  4. 4. Technology Assessment Framework (TAF) Structure of the TAF: TAF Component 1 for the assessment of potential of a specific technology TAF Component 2 for guidance for the uptake process Will focus on the assessment of potential of a specific technology in a selected context. The user will get a picture of the issue based on objective criteria. The interpretation of the “picture” will remain the task of the user(s). An assessment is not a selection of one option out of a variety of options. On the basis of the results of the TAF Component 1 the user can start entering the decision taking process. Will include a guidance tool for the design and analysis of a specific technology uptake approach. This component will describe the phases of the uptake process, the roles of key actors for different uptake approaches and provide support to the TAF user in the planning of a uptake process. For the uptake of technologies different approaches can be followed.
  5. 5. Technology Assessment Framework (TAF)
  6. 6. TAF Component 1 (Assessment of potential) 2 main steps: • Screening Based on guiding questions which will ask specific questions with respect to – The technology, in particular its function, performance, characteristics, requirements and preconditions for working . – The context, which included the physical environment, the social and economic situation, the institutional set up and with respect to the current level of service. • Assessment Also based on guiding questions and covering – Six dimensions for sustainability (Economy and financial; Environmental; Social; Organisations, institutional, legal; Skills and Knowhow; Technology / Product) and – Two stakeholder perspectives (User / Producer of a specific technology, and wider institutional set up in WASH sector)  At the end: Summary Assessment Sheet
  7. 7. TAF Component 1 - Screening 2 parts in the screening: • Screening 1 on Technical applicability • Screening 2 on Real needs Tools used during screening: • Fact Sheet • Context Sheet • Screening Sheet, covering Screening 1 and Screening 2
  8. 8. TAF Component 1 - Assessment Assessment done using a matrix, which is filled in using guiding questions: For each cell, based on the result of the guiding questions, a scoring is applied:
  9. 9. TAF Component 1 - Summary Main steps / tools: Outputs:
  10. 10. TAF Component 2 (Guidance on uptake) Based on the theoretical phases of technology uptake process:
  11. 11. TAF Component 2 (Guidance on uptake) Will consider three approaches for the technology uptake process: A. Approach where investment costs for infrastructure are highly subsidized or covered by government/donor and where user are in charge or take over full costs for O&M; this approach is common for most of the programmes which have been designed and led by governments and external donors (“Conventional approach ”) B. Approach where investment costs are shared and with substantial contribution from government or external donors for covering costs or even providing O&M. C. Approach where investment costs and costs and responsibility for O& M are fully covered by users; there is no subsidies from external sources for investment nor for O&M, but maybe support marketing and promotion; in where the user decides and invests in the technology; one well known example is the so called “market based approach”.
  12. 12. TAF Component 2 (Guidance on uptake) Will use 4 (5) main tools: •(Mapping of actors) •Functional Analysis Matrix with generic description of functions and tasks •Mapping of actors interactions •Phasing of Uptake process •Description of tasks of key actors involved Complementary information for the planning or analysis of an uptake process can be generated by the TAF user by applying additional tools or checking linkages: SWOT-Analysis, link to the Technology Assessment in TAF Component 1, links to other phases.
