Sobre este portal

El Portal contiene herramientas que ayudan a los gobiernos nacionales y a sus aliados para el desarrollo a poner en práctica los diferentes aspectos del Marco de SWA, incluyendo las Estructuras básicas, los Comportamientos de colaboración y los Principios Rectores. El portal es una base de datos y una lista de recursos en constante crecimiento, y resulta fácil buscar en él mediante palabras clave. 

Los objetivos del portal son:

  • Proporcionar una “ventanilla única“ a través de la cual los profesionales del sector y los responsables de las políticas y la toma de decisiones puedan seleccionar herramientas para apoyar la aplicación de las Estructuras básicas y los Comportamientos de colaboración en materia de WASH de una manera que sea apropiada para el contexto y el objetivo específicos para los que se necesitan.

  • Proporcionar una plataforma que facilite el acceso a las experiencias y lecciones aprendidas por los diferentes actores y en los diferentes países que han utilizado las herramientas.

  • Apoyar a los países para que asuman el liderazgo de las herramientas que utilizan (y se alejen del uso de las herramientas impulsado por la preferencia de los donantes y los responsables de la financiación).

  • Evitar una mayor fragmentación y duplicación de herramientas.

  • Determinar las esferas en que no existen herramientas y trabajar juntos para crearlas.

Add a tool to the portal

Are you a tool developer or author of a case study or report relevant to strengthening WASH?

You are welcome to add your tool using the form below. But please first check if it meets our criteria. For a WASH tool to be included in this Portal, it must:

  1. Focus on WASH “software” – policies, processes and techniques that help strengthen the WASH enabling environment (upstream). It does not include tools for the implementation of WASH hardware or infrastructure (downstream). 
  2. Be primarily focussed on targets 6.1 (water) and 6.2 (sanitation and hygiene) of the SDGs. Case studies/reports etc. that are related to the MDGs or other SDGs should only be included if they are relevant for learning about implementation of SDG6.1 or 6.2.
  3. Be open source (available for use with no license or purchase fees).
Submit a tool review

Do you have experience applying any of the tools in this portal? If yes, please submit a review of your experience and what you found were the tool’s main strengths and weaknesses. We hope that fair, frank and constructive tool reviews will help others get a clearer sense of whether or not a given tool would suit their purposes. It may also help tool developers to understand how they can improve their tools. 

All tool reviews submitted will be vetted by the SWA Tools Portal Administrator before being released onto the Portal.
