Detailed description of Tool

The rapid estimates provided by REVAMP are particularly intended to help city planners and policy-makers at crucial decision-points regarding waste management; for example, planning of new sanitation infrastructure, wastewater treatment plants, and climate mitigation measures. It can also be useful for engineers, developers, researchers and anyone interested in the circular economy.

Users input available data on waste stream volumes and characteristics at city scale, along with values of different reuse products (currently biogas, solid combustion fuel, insect larvae for livestock feed, and compost fertilizer/soil conditioner). The tool can then:

  • Estimate the resources that could be recovered in various forms (such as plant nutrients, insect fat and protein, biogas);
  • Estimate the total quantities of reuse products that could be produced;
  • Estimate the potential revenues from different reuse products; and
  • Compare the reuse options on the basis of energy content, nutrient content and potential revenues, to support decision-making on city sanitation and waste management plans.

Water and Sanitation for Health Facility Improvement Tool (WASH FIT)

Year of publication:
2018
The Water and Sanitation for Health Facility Improvement Tool (WASH FIT) is a facility-led risk-based approach which focuses on implementing incremental improvements over time to improve quality of care. When a climate-lens is applied to WASH FIT, risk assessments can identify triggers and provide warning signs to facility management teams to help them to develop mitigation measures for future climate-related events. The target audience are WASH and Health specialists and managers interested in planning for new, or upgrade existing WASH services in health care facilities.
