This guidance document was written with a strong involvement of UNDP-SIWI Water Governance Facility under the collaboration with UNICEF through the Accountability for Sustainability programme.

This Guide aims at supporting resource people who are responsible for facilitating and organizing a workshop on the application of the WASH BAT to ensure an effective outcome. It guides each user to reflect on different elements, steps and preconditions required for a successful preparation and implementation of the entire process through a checklist of options. The Guide also provides different options so that it can be customized to any given context.

A User Manual and Tutorial Video are available at WASH BAT homepage for further understanding the tool, as well as a Facilitators Page with additional training materials.
