Abstract: The Water Project Toolkit addresses the sustainable development of the water sector and contributes to translating the international development policies on freshwater resources management into actual development cooperation activities. The Water Project Toolkit is intended to be used by sector stakeholders such as governments, private sector, civil society, development partners, Universities and other training institutions, international organisations and all other practitioners involved in the water sector. The Toolkit provides a comprehensive framework for all activities relating to water resources development; its application involves a radical change from previous attitudes towards water management, and the introduction of good practices for fostering a sustainable and inclusive approach. The first part of the Toolkit introduces the rationale, the challenges and the key concepts behind international development policies and practices of the water sector. It identifies policy principles and translates them into practical actions to support the sustainable management and implementation of water resources development. It clusters programme activity into six Focus Areas, within which the policy principles are to be applied. The second part of the Water Project Toolkit is the core practical material of the book. It consists of step-by-step suggestions for the planning, identification, formulation, implementation and evaluation of water development activities. The third and final part of the Toolkit provides a brief summary of the latest policies and tools for development cooperation in the water sector.
