The Centre for Affordable Water and Sanitation Technology (CAWST) began expanding its services to online spaces in 2012 with a water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) Resources website where CAWST training materials are freely available for downloading, and a Biosand Filter Knowledge Base. This has led to an increase in WASH practitioners who have been able to use our resources and receive remote consulting support. We are currently working to expand our online services to include a Household Water Treatment Knowledge Base and an e-Library. The key challenge faced by CAWST has been the time required to support these services, both technically and with client support. CAWST has increased its team in order to address this challenge.
