The pilot was supported in various ways and at various times by the Directorate of Water Development, the Water and Sanitation Programme (WSP) of the World Bank, the Rural Water Supply Network (RWSN), and the international NGO WaterAid.

The risks of a technology-based MDG indicator for rural water supply 33rd WEDC International Conference, Accra, Ghana, 2008

The MDG indicator for access to safe water equates technology with water quality based largely on designed rather than observed capacity to block routes of faecal contamination. This is a useful driver for donor and government investment in rural water supplies but does not show the whole story.

The Afridev Handpump is produced in several developing countries. The quality, however, varies from manufacturer to manufacturer. While most of the quality related problems can be attributed to lack of internal quality control mechanism at the factory level, others can be attributed either to inadequate procurement procedures or insufficient understanding of the quality assurance requirements by inspection agencies.

Groundwater in Rural Development : Facing the Challenges of Supply and Resource Sustainability Water P-Notes Issue 19

Some 200 million people lived on Planet Earth at the start of the modern era. That number rose to 2.5 billion by 1950. At mid-2008, the population is now 7.0 billion and is expected to reach 9.0 billion by 2040. It thus took 1,950 years for the global population to grow ten-fold but only an additional 58 years to nearly triple. And throughout this period the global availability of water resources has remained more or less constant. Growing ever more food to feed rising populations will be possible only with increasingly large amounts of water being used for agricultural irrigation, even allowing for further advances in plant genetics. Groundwater widely developed by private initiative but often stimulated by 'soft loan' finance, guaranteed crop prices, and rural energy subsidies will be a very important source of irrigation water. At the same time groundwater will continue to be the predominant source of household water for the rural population in developing nations.

Author: SUTTON, I.
Year of Publishing: 2007
Publisher: Cranfield University
Institution:

Hand drilling methods can offer low cost, rapid access to shallow, unconsolidated aquifers typically found in dambo environments (seasonally waterlogged African wetlands).
This thesis presents the findings from an evaluation of three hand drilling techniques (augering, percussion drilling, and borehole jetting) regarding to their suitability for groundwater supply in upland and lowland dambos in Malawi.

Baptist Drilling

Author: CLOESEN, P.
Year of Publishing: 2007
Publisher: unpublished
Institution:

Baptist drilling is similar to hand sludging, with some percussion drilling combined. The main difference is that while sludging relies on a person's hand at the top of the drill pipe as a valve, the Baptist method uses on a valve at the bottom of the drill pipe.

Institution:

The drilling method developed by the Escuela Móvil de Agua y Saneamiento (Mobile School for Water and Sanitation) in Bolivia is a hybrid between washboring, percussion and rotary drilling. It permits to drill through all kinds of loose soils, as ell as consolidated materials and light rock. It will not, however, penetrate hard original rock or boulders (e.g. ancient river beds underground)
