CAWST, the Centre for Affordable Water and Sanitation Technology, is a nonprofit organization and licensed engineering firm that provides training and consulting to organizations that work directly with populations in developing countries who lack access to clean water and basic sanitation. CAWST "walks beside" hundreds of organizations—government agencies, community groups, and local and international NGOs of all sizes—in 82 countries as they develop their capacities to deliver water and sanitation programs locally. Impacting the lives of 13.1 million people worldwide through better water and sanitation since 2001, CAWST's capacity building model has demonstrated its ability to catalyze community action in developing countries to initiate and operate water and sanitation programs.
