EPA Grant Number: SU835351
Title: A Decision-Making Support Tool for Water and Sanitation Projects in Low-Resource Settings

Despite significant global investments in Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (WaSH) initiatives, 35 to 80 percent fail in low resource communities. One key cause of program failure has been identified as the selection of inappropriate technologies by project leaders. University of North Carolina Chapel Hill students have developed an evidence-based needs assessment survey and Excel-based tool that matches local conditions with appropriate technology to help project leaders make informed and empowered decisions and increase the possibility of success for their initiatives.
