The Asian Development Bank (ADB), together with UNESCO-IHE, has developed WAMEX as a novel and intuitive tool that aims to help decision-makers and planners develop options for addressing various scenarios related to wastewater and sanitation management. This tool is useful for the planning of new systems, upgrading of existing systems and preparing budgets and cost estimates. It also allows users to build their own ‘what-if’ scenarios, enabling them to explore many different wastewater schemes and sanitation options. The software tool contains a list of conventional and emerging technologies consistent with the ADB’s thrust of promoting innovations in sewage collection, wastewater treatment and sanitation. It also has an intuitive built-in GIS functionality that enables users to set up and assess different wastewater reticulation options and find their optimal solutions.
