Professionalising Manual Drilling: Malawi A country summary

Downloads: 246


Author: HOLME, R, DANERT, K, SITOLO, T, MCGILL J & HOLTSLAG H
Year of Publishing: 2013
Publisher: RWSN
Institution: Skat Foundation & UNICEF

This summary is part of a series that describe the experiences of manual drilling in several countries.
It is estimated that up to 1,000 manually drilled wells exist in Malawi. Documentation on what was undertaken in the past is scant. However an initiative by Mzuzu University Centre of Excellence in Water and Sanitation SMART Centre in Northern Malawi commenced in 2012, with 50 manually drilled wells constructed by mid-2013. Businesses are being trained in both technical and business aspects of manual drilling. The national water policy does not specifically refer to manual drilling, but the 2012 Sector Performance Report recommends the technology as well as self supply approaches.

Evaluation of Hand Augered Well Technologies’ Capacity to Improve Access to Water in Coastal Ngöbe Communities in Panama MSc thesis submitted to University of South Florida 2014

Institution: College of Engineering

In Panama, the indigenous Ngöbe people in the ÑöKribo coastal area are a group disproportionately affected by a lack of improved access to drinking water and challenges to the feasibility of piped gravity fed water systems that typically serve the rest of the country. An NGO aiming to ameliorate this situation introduced two improved groundwater supply technologies to the region: bailers and EMAS hand pumps. This study assesses the comparative performance of these systems while evaluating the respective performances of existing water sources, using the wide variety of quantitative and qualitative data obtained.

Publisher: Government of Sudan
Institution: Drinking Water and Sanitation Unit

The Government of Sudan has developed National and State Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Strategic Plans for 2012 to 2016. Under the plans it is envisaged that several thousands of boreholes will need to be drilled annually to meet the water supply targets. The Government with UNICEF support developed 10 Principles for Cost Effective Boreholes which were adopted by stakeholders at a workshop in Khartoum in 2009 as the framework for future borehole provision in the country.
This is the report of a study to evaluate the status of drilling and drilling practices within the framework of the 10 principles and from it develop a National Code of Practice for Borehole Construction and a National Drilling Strategy for Sudan. Information were collected from the public and private sectors and the NGOs in 8 states.
