Abstract: This paper explains the important contribution that rapid assessment techniques (RATs) can make to the development of generic WSPs and associated programmes (for example sanitation promotion programmes) in a region or country, by assisting in identifying potential risks associated with individual water source types or supply technologies, from chemicals, or from management practices. The techniques are equally applicable to all types of water supply – from spring sources and hand-dug wells, through community-based boreholes, with hand or mechanised pumps, to large urban utility supplies, but especially in developing countries.
