Part 2 – Open washing areas and water points

Handicap International



This booklet is part of the set called “How to build an accessible environment in developing countries” . It
represents the first technical manual on how to build accessible infrastructures in concrete terms. Because of its technical content, this manual aims mainly to be used by Ministries, NGOs, DPOs and more in particular due to its technicians (engineers, architects, building companies, NGOs with technical background...). People without specific technical knowledge can use it for understanding standards, general principles and can use drawings and pictures for enhancing understanding.
In this manual, we will focus on how to build accessible water and sanitation (or watsan) facilities, which comprise toilets, closed showers, washing areas and access to clear water. Such facilities are very important, not only to PwD but to everyone because they constitute a component of our everyday life.
