Stakeholder Perceptions of Self Supply in the Ugandan Rural Water Supply Sector MSc Thesis Academic Year 2005/6

Downloads:


Author: MILLS, O.
Year of Publishing: 2006
Publisher: Cranfield University
Institution:

The research aimed to provide further understanding of stakeholders’ perceptions of self supply in the Ugandan rural water supply sector. Self supply refers to the self-financed initiation or incremental improvement of a water source by an individual or group of individuals without (or with little) support from government or an NGO. The objectives of the study was: (1) to identify and classify the perceptions from key stakeholders from 5 districts and 5 sub-counties; (2) clarify the definition of, barriers to, opportunities for and uptake of the Self Supply concept; and (3) provide recommendations to specific
stakeholder groups for introducing self supply support in Uganda. This was achieved through stakeholder semi-structured interviews and observations.

This study was commissioned to follow up on a previous study called RITS conducted a few years ago. It examines what has happened since that research concluded in 2002, including social surveys and water quality analysis and put forward recommendations on a way forward in relation to “self supply”. Self supply is the term put to water sources that are provided at the initiative of householders and owned by that householder but shared as a social good with a small number of neighbouring households.

Zimbabwe's Upgraded Family Well Programme

Even before Zimbabwe’s National Upgraded Well Programme began in the late 1980’s, one million people drew their water daily from both communal and family owned shallow wells. The number of families owning some sort of well or water hole in their back yard or vegetable garden was estimated at 100 000 at that time. Thus the shallow well concept was well established as a source of water in the rural areas of Zimbabwe.

Whilst some of these wells were adequately protected, most were either unprotected or poorly protected and had the tendency to become heavily contaminated. This was partly because of rainwater run-off but also due to contaminated buckets and ropes laying in unhygienic conditions at the well head, on the ground, and being reintroduced into the well. Many were dangerous, especially for children, because they were poorly lined, if at all, and had little or no protection at the well head. Possibly because they were regarded more as a threat to health than a benefit, these family owned back yard wells did not appear on any inventory of rural water sources, and were not regarded seriously by Government or other organisations at the start of the national rural water supply programme which began in 1980 with the help of external donor support. And yet in some areas over 30% of the population use shallow wells on a daily basis. The National Master Plan for rural water development, written in the early 1980’s mentioned them only in passing. The emphasis at that time, was to serve the rural people with a communally based hand pump supply.

Tanzania has a vibrant growing economy – business opportunities are emerging in all sectors. This growth is also reflected in the drilling industry. The country has formulated ambitious MDG for rural water. The private sector drilling industry represents one of the supply-side bottlenecks. To meet the MDG, development of sufficient local capacity for borehole drilling is critical. This study reviews the situation in the drilling sector, assesses options, and identifies support areas.

Despite many years of interventions worldwide, UNICEF estimated that in rural areas roughly 1.7 billion people did not have access to safe drinking water in the year 2000. Upgrading of traditional water sources such as hand dug wells or scoop holes is a low cost and low technology solution, providing access to improved quality drinking water in rural areas.
