In a bid to identify how governments can be supported to ensure more sustainable services, the World Bank’s Water Global Practice, which made rural water supply services a key challenge area, commissioned Aguaconsult to conduct a 16-country study, with the objective of developing and applying a simple framework to assess the sustainability of rural water supply.
This learning note provides an overview of the capacity development project, its key achievements, and lessons learned to date and it also captures and presents specific and targeted recommendations.
The World Bank contracted Aguaconsult, together with IRC of the Netherlands, to research existing frameworks and metrics used to assess rural water service delivery. Forty indicator sets were analysed and on the basis of this set of empirical evidence, the team developed a set of standard global indicators to measure different characteristics of rural water services.
The Cost of Water Project supports the effective planning and sustainable management of water supply systems in refugee camps and settlements. Launched in 2014 by the Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) Unit in DPSMÕs Public Health Section in partnership with IRC, the project measures the overall costs of providing effective water systems in a variety of refugee hosting contexts to create a flexible decision-making tool specific to refugee situations.
