Several years ago Zimbabwe embarked on a program of upgrading family owned wells. This program was fully endorsed by the GOZ and operated under the MOHCW. The program has been well documented in papers and other publications. This program was based on the fact that for many decades individual families had chosen to upgrade their own wells privately and outside the formal GOZ rural water supply and sanitation program.

Community Managed Project (CMP) approach is a way to do rural water supply differently. It is an innovation in community managed water supply that aims to retain and strengthen some of the better aspects of community management while addressing certain key weaknesses, especially a lack of local government capacity to support communities and poor sustainability.

Full details of the event available at http://rwsnforum.wordpress.com

The 2011 6th Rural Water Supply Network Forum in Kampala set out a vision for the future. It provided the opportunity for 480 participants from 54 countries to share their experiences and chart key next steps along the path for rural water supplies. This includes actions determined at the Forum and the Kampala Rural Water Supply Commitments with ten statements. These summarise a commitment to accelerating progress in inclusive and sustainable rural water supplies wherever those services are absent or under-performing.
As well as being opened and closed by Hon. Maria Mutagamba, Minister of Water and Environment, we were kindly joined by a sizeable delegation from the Government of South Sudan and the Hon. Ato Kebede Gerba, Minister for Water and Energy for Ethiopia.

The human right to water and sanitation is guaranteed as a component of the right to an adequate standard of living as consecrated in the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (a treaty which is binding for 160 countries). This has implications for the work of rural water supply professionals and practitioners. It also has implications for water users as well as national and local leaders.
But have you thought about what it actually means for you, and your engagement with others? This document consolidates the reply of a three-week E-Disucssion on this topic hosted by RWSN Equity and Inclusion Group in April/May 2012.

Veiller à ce que les populations habitant en milieu rural à travers le monde n’aient pas à marcher pendant des heures pour collecter une eau potable en quantité suffisante constitue un défi majeur. Ce bref article soulève les problèmes qui se posent à ceux d’entre nous qui s’emploient à améliorer l’alimentation en eau en milieu rural, qu’il s’agisse de bailleurs de fonds, de gouvernements ou d’ONG, de gestionnaires de programmes ou de praticiens. Il examine de près nos résultats limités, identifie les domaines où nos approches méritent d’être améliorées fondamentalement et propose des solutions à certains défis.

Consultation on Draft Long List of Goal, Target and Indicator Options for Future Global Monitoring of Water, Santiation and Hygiene WHO/UNICEF Joint Monitoring Programme (JMP) for Water Supply and Sanitation

Institution: WHO/UNICEF

In anticipation of a water goal in the future sustainable development goal (SDG) framework, the Joint Monitoring Programme (JMP) has initiated, at the global level, a consultative, technical process.

This will try to ensure that targets and indicators proposed to the UN General Assembly in September 2013 optimally reflect the state of the art in monitoring, represent the dual interests of the development and human rights communities and take on board lessons learned from the global monitoring experience during the MDG period.

This consultative document had been prepared to explain the background to this process. It provides a long list of potential targets and indicators – as well as formulations to be considered for the goal itself. It should be noted that this draft list is a first attempt by four different working groups to express what is desirable to monitor globally after 2015. The work of the four groups has not yet been through a process of consolidation. This is planned as a next step.

You can provide feedback via the JMP website (address below). If you have particular comments and ideas on rural water supply aspects, or the process itself, please let us know at the RWSN Secretariat, or through RWSN's Linkedin discussion group. Those of us on the groups are trying to make this process as partipative as possible.

Imagine a transparent process that brings together all the work that is taking place in the country. Imagine a mechanism that can show promising approaches and identify gaps. Imagine a report that consolidates the status, investment, progress and challenges on rural water supplies for an entire country. This is what the Government of Uganda has achieved over a ten-year period.

Having been involved in Water and Environment sector performance measurement from its inception in 2003 up to today, the authors of this publication describe the lessons learned and challenges, setting out five principles and ten golden rules for others who want to establish such a process.

One of the key challenges contributing to non-functionality of rural water sources is the time lag between the identification of faults and the rehabilitation. This lag, in WASH parlance, is called service downtime, mainly caused by drawbacks in information flow. Information from Water User Committees (WUCs) is hardly received and not well documented; information received from Community Development Officers and Health Assistants is often inaccurate and hard to verify compromising the effectiveness of their monitoring programmes; a lot of information collected by different stakeholders is not shared and is often outdated.

The WSP approach is designed to help a community manage health risks that could threaten its water supply. By following the WSP approach, community members identify and prioritize health risks and, where necessary, take steps, over time,to improve the safety of the water supply using available resources. WSPs are applicable for a range of scales and levels, and in different contexts. A WSP can be developed for all existing schemes, from point sources to piped systems, as well as for new supplies. In new schemes, it should be straightforward for the supporting agency to incorporate the WSP approach into initial community mobilization and project implementation.
