O documento conceitual do evento diz que entre 300,000 a 500,000 furos serão necesários para o alcance dos Objectivos e Desenvolvimento do Milénio (ODM) em África. Destes, aproximadamente 20,0001 furos novos para o abastecimento de água às populações rurais, deverão ser feitos em Moçambique até 2015. A pergunta que se põe é: quem é que vai fazer esses furos e a que preço?

The focus for the Rural Water Supply Network (RWSN) in 2016 was preparing for, and managing the 7th RWSN Forum in Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire, from 29th November to 2nd December with the title “Water for Everyone”. This was the first RWSN Forum to take place in a francophone country in the 25 years since the creation of the network.

Throughout 2016 specific in-country activities included a short-course on Procurement, Contract Management and Costing and Pricing in Zambia and a participative analysis of Manual Drilling in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
Workshops organized by the World Bank in Bangkok and Lima on sustainable services drew together government agencies in both regions. Key lessons from both events fed into the RWSN Forum under the RWSN Theme “Sustainable Services”.

RWSN continued to work on strengthening the links between research and practice on groundwater by disseminating the outputs from UPGro (Unlocking the Potential of Groundwater for the Poor) research to the RWSN membership as well as fostering direct linkages between groundwater experts and water supply professionals.

The Rural Water Supply Network (RWSN) is a global network of professionals and practitioners. It works to raise standards of knowledge as well as technical and professional competence in rural water supplies and thus fulfil the vision of sustainable rural water services for all.

The year 2013 witnessed the dramatic growth in the number of members from 2,567 to over 5,125. Members are from 124 different countries. The network now also provides the opportunity for organisation membership, a mechanism that should strengthen RWSN and improve its vibrancy over the coming years.

Confidence in online exchange and sharing has grown, evidenced by extensive participation in e-discussions, whether formally structured, or as individuals respond to each other’s queries and comments. The sustainable Groundwater Development, Handpump Services and Mapping communities have been notably vibrant in 2013.

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).

The main objective of the present guideline is to ensure the protection of groundwater intended for human consumption. Consequently, it is mainly focused on the protection of groundwater sources (e.g. pumping well, tapped springs). However, although the protection of sensitive areas for drinking water supply must be given high priority, good practices have to be implemented at a larger scale too, in order to sustain the resources as well as the aquatic ecosystems: awareness must be built in order to avoid any contamination of the water cycle (quality aspect) and to preserve water resources (quantity aspect), in particular within the aquifer areas
