Who we are
The Appropriate Technology Centre for Water and Sanitation (ATC) was established in 2010 as the research arm for Ministry of Water and Environment (MWE) to undertake applied/action research in water and sanitation technologies, promotion of appropriate Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) technologies as well as carry out capacity building of sector actors. ATC today undertakes applied research, capacity building and promotion of appropriate water and sanatition technologies. ATC vision is to become a self sustaining entity; able to attract and generate funding.
ATC carries out research on low cost technologies that can be adopted to enhance rural water supply. For example, rainwater harvesting has a potential in the country and thus, we are studying a number of options that can be used to upscale the practice. An EMAS tank with pump which is one of the most low cost rainwater harvesting technology has been installed in the model village and its use is being studied. Other technologies under study include using the rope pump as a self supply technology -i.e., to lift water from an underground tank.
