The WASHCost calculator was developed in 2013 by the International Water and Sanitation Centre (IRC). The app helps implementers and donors of water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) programmes better plan and evaluate sanitation and water services using cost and service level data. The WASHCost calculator aims to ease the use or planning of the life cycle costs approach by governments, multilaterals, training institutions, International NGOs and donors.

The vision for the WASHCost Calculator is that WASH sector practitioners use life cycle costs information to adapt their plans and achieve water and sanitation services that last for generations. Users without expert knowledge about the life cycle costs approach will be able to run a sustainability check to strengthen delivery of water and sanitation services, make use of reliable life cycle cost information, and understand the benefits of the life cycle costs approach. The calculator will allow organisations to collect, upload, analyse, and exchange data on the cost of water and sanitation services.
