City Service Delivery Assessment for Citywide Inclusive Sanitation - Tool and User Guide

by Inclusive sanitation in Practice, 2019


The City Service Delivery Assessment (CSDA) complements the Shit Flow Diagrams to assess why the situation is as it is. It provides a process for working with stakeholders to assess the enabling environment for citywide inclusive sanitation and to present the results in a simple and accessible way. The CSDA User Guide explains how the CSDA tool works and provides recommendations on how to use it with stakeholders.

Community-Led Urban Environmental Sanitation Planning (CLUES)

by Eawag-Sandec, UN-Habitat, Water Supply & Sanitation Collaborative Council


The CLUES approach presents comprehensive guidelines for the planning and implementation of environmental sanitation infrastructure and services in disenfranchised urban and peri-urban communities. The planning approach builds on a framework which balances the needs of people with those of the environment to support human dignity and a healthy life. CLUES is a multi-sector and multi-actor approach accounting for water supply, sanitation, solid waste management and storm drainage. It emphasizes the participation of all stakeholders from an early stage in the planning process. CLUES contains 30 different tools to support the environmental sanitation planning processes at the local level.

Water Security Assessment Tool (WATSAT)

by Water Engineering and Management (WEM) and Asian Institute of Technology (AIT)


WATSAT is a city-level water security rating tool. It has a three-layered structure that culminates into a Water Security Index (WSI). The WSI is measured on a scale of 1 to 5, and provides the overall water security situation in the city. It helps identify the driving forces that have an impact on urban water security.
