The Tanzanian NGO SHIPO gives training to local welders and drillers to provide products such as rope pumps and manual drilling. Using a market-based approach, households and institutions can benefit from products and services to improve their own water supplies (self supply). This report documents the achievements of an intervention to develop the capacity of the local private sector. It presents issues and ideas on reaching rural households and assuring the quality of products and services.

Northern Bahr el Ghazal State Framework and Implementation Programme for Operation and Maintenance of Water Supplies A Politically Enabled Public Private Partnership

Please note that a new Framework and Handbook for the State was published in March 2015 - see link below.

Northern Bahr el Ghazal faces a major challenge to ensure sustainable water services to rural and urban communities. In the past Unicef’s regular supply of spare parts helped to keep the number of broken down hand pumps to a relatively low level (officially around 10%). With no more free spare parts from Unicef the number of non functioning hand pumps could increase dramatically. This first framework provides a basis for turning a potential crisis into an opportunity. Its success will need a major shift in both policy and practice for operating and maintaining hand pumps and require state politicians and public services, private sector and community actors to each play their role.

Changing relationships: ICT to improve water governance World Water Week in Stockholm, Wednesday 4 September 2013

Information and communications technology (ICT) has transformed how people communicate. ICT is quickly changing relationships, facilitating the measurement and monitoring of interventions, and enabling practitioners at a local level to use evidence to guide decision making for the equitable and sustainable extension of water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) services.
Despite this promising outlook, several challenges exist to use the full potential of ICT. Is there sufficient knowledge to apply the new technologies effectively? What has worked and how? Who has access to the information and are incentives in place for using information to improve services? What are the associated costs?
The seminar, ICT to improve water governance, provided a platform for discussion. Three sub-topics were presented. This briefing note summarises the key points.

Sustainability of Community Managed Rural Water Supply in Post-Conflict Regions of Northern Uganda A research project report submitted in partial fulfilment of the requirements for the award of the degree of Master of Science of Loughborough University.

There is increasing recognition of challenges with community managed rural water supply and lack of sustainable results. Aspects of institutional, financial and service delivery sustainability have not been realized as anticipated. Despite these challenges, it remains the prevalent methodology for rural water supply implementation. The study region of rural northern Uganda is an area facing both post-conflict stresses and aspects of rural disparity. Achieving sustainable rural water supply remains elusive even within the welldeveloped national policy for the water sector in Uganda that integrates community management methodology into the government framework. The research objective is to determine the extent to which reliance on the community based management method has supported sustainable water supply in this post-conflict environment and identify factors of success and failure.

This report summarises the main activities and outcomes for the first six months of 2013. RWSN is at the midway point in the three-year strategy (2012 to 2014). We thus take stock of how the network is progressing towards the objectives that were set back in 2011. We report on each theme, the secretariat, and on the wider membership. Ultimately, the network’s contribution towards its vision (Box 1) will determine the value of RWSN.

This report describes the learning alliances and their development in the WASHTech project in Burkina Faso. It provides answers to questions regarding five key elements of alliance development: essence, arborescence, presence, resilience and evidence. The information presented in this report was gathered through interviews and Focus group discussion where: Direction des Etudes et de l’Information sur l’Eau (DEIE), DGRE, DGAEUE WaterAid and WSA were represented during the TIP workshop in April, 26th 2013.

TIP Matrix for cost Model “CapEx subsidized”

Year of Publishing: 2013
Publisher: WASHTech Project
Institution:

The following tables include an example list of tasks for the Cost Model “CapEx subsidized”.

For this example the set up was chosen as follows:
A sanitation technology is produced and delivered by local artisans and provider to user, e.g. a latrine. The process of introduction is facilitated by local NGOs. The investment costs, the CapEx are subsidized by the government, however the households, the users, have to cover the cost for minor and ma-jor repairs (OpEx and CapManEx respectively).

The example list of tasks is provided to show how a division of tasks could be organized following a CapEx subsidized approach. However for each spe-cific case the division of tasks needs to be verified and customized to the specific context.

The following tables include an example list of tasks for the Cost Model “No Subsidies”. This cost model is also known as “market based approach” and used e.g. for Self Supply.

For this example the set up was chosen as follows:
A water supply technology, e.g. a household water filter is supplied to users by the privet sector. The users cover all investment costs (CapEx) and also the costs for minor and major repairs (OpEx and CapManEx respectively). Some “software” support is provided from an investor, government and NGO for promotion and social marketing.

The example list of tasks is provided to show how a division of tasks could be organized following a market based approach. However for each specific case the division of tasks needs to be verified and customized to the specific context.

This report outlines the research process that was followed to develop two tools that are useful for the WASH sector: the Technology Applicability Framework (TAF) and the Technology Introduction Process (TIP). The TAF is applied to validate different technology options considered for a given context, and to thus assess possible blockages to their sustainability and scalability. The TAF, therefore, assists the local sector stakeholders to find solutions to overcome the stumbling blocks hindering provision of lasting services. The TIP is a guidance document to be used to steer the multi-stakeholder-coordinated initiation of a specific WASH technology towards a local WASH service that lasts.

Mainstreaming disability and ageing in water, sanitation and hygiene programmes A mapping study carried out for WaterAid UK

Author: JONES, H.

Publisher: WaterAid / SHARE
Institution: WEDC, Loughborough University

The mainstreaming disability and aging in WASH programmes report recognises that progress on the MDGs is not happening in an equitable way. A drive for increasing coverage of basic services, such as WASH has meant that people who are ‘harder to reach’, such as disabled and older people often remain un-served.

This report presents an overview of the extent to which disability and ageing is mainstreamed in WASH programmes. Drawing on experiences from WASH organisations around the world, it is evident that disability and ageing have received increased attention in the WASH sector over the last decade, but there is still a long way to go to achieve genuine mainstreaming. The current picture is of a ‘continuum’ of progress towards mainstreaming. This continuum provides a framework for WASH implementers to analyse their own equity and inclusion activities. With further refinement, it could also provide a practical tool for use by implementers in reviewing progress, and planning next steps in mainstreaming disability and ageing within their organisation and programmes. The thought provoking report provides a starting point and structure for discussion of ways forward.

RWSN Handpump Survey 2013 Summary of Findings

Institution: Rural Water Supply Network

Manual pumps have been used for centuries but this simple technology remains the mainstay of rural water supplies in many countries. The Handpump Technology Network (which later became RWSN) was set up in 1992 to promote collaboration and standardisation so that handpumps could provide more reliable and better quality rural water services.

This survey is aimed at practitioners in government, NGOs, private sector and development partners who are directly involved in rural water service implementation, or who are involved in the procurement of handpumps or spare parts (as either a buyer or seller).
