This toolkit contains the complete set of tools (e.g. drawings, BoQs, management guidelines) that the Water Service Providers (WSPs) need to plan, design, implement, manage, monitor and evaluate programmes for their customers specifically in low income areas.
The toolkit is owned and was developed by the Water Services Trust Fund (WSTF), a pro-poor basket fund. The process was assisted by the water sector reform program of GIZ, formerly GTZ, with GFA as consultant on behalf of the German Government (Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development, BMZ). The team leader was Han Seur from GFA.
In its original form it is available as a user-friendly DVD that assists the WSPs and Water Services Boards during the 8 project phases of the funding scheme called Urban Projects Concept, which is briefly described in a booklet available at the following link:

A tool can be an application form, a publication, a guideline, a poster, a checklist, a contract, a drawing or a manual. Some tools guide you through the process of designing and implementing project activities.
Most tools can be adapted, changed and printed by you. Some have been prepared using Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, ArciCad and AutoCAD. This online version has however joined a number of documents together as pdf in order to reduce the number of files. The original files are available on the DVD-ROM or can be requested by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We hope that you find these tools useful for your work!
