Organizations working in disaster response in the country recognize the require a readily available working compendium of WASH technologies with technical details & drawings, materials specification with quantity, and costs, which is currently absent in the WASH sector in Bangladesh. In this regard, ITN-BUET is providing the technical support to develop a National Compendium of Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Technologies for Disaster Response. The WASH Compendium presents technical details of each WASH technology, including system description, major components, anticipated risks and important O&M issues. Regeneration/rehabilitation of the water supply options, and desludging of sanitation options are also included in the Compendium. The emergency situations/contexts under which a particular technology is suitable is also described.
The Compendium also includes technical drawings/sketches of the technologies, including plan and sectional views to help the construction of these technologies in the field. Finally, cost estimate, including BoQ has been presented for each of the technologies included in this Compendium.
