Reimagining rural water services: the future agenda. An introduction to ten building blocks to support sustainable service delivery

This briefing note introduces a package of ten ‘building blocks’ we have found to be critical in moving towards sustainable service delivery. It reviews progress in their adoption and then sets out an agenda for the coming five years for rural water sectors striving to ensure full coverage and sustainable services

Developing a strategy to realise sustainable services at scale means addressing the building blocks in an integrated but sequenced way, whilst recognising the unique challenges and opportunities in every country.

Post-Construction Support and Sustainability in Community-Managed Rural Water Supply

This volume reports the main findings from a multi-country research project that was designed to develop a better understanding of how rural water supply systems are performing in developing countries. We began the research in 2004 to investigate how the provision of support to communities after the construction of a rural water supply project affected project performance in the medium term. We collected information from households, village water committees, focus groups of village residents, system operators, and key informants in 400 rural communities in Bolivia, Ghana, and Peru; in total, we discussed community water supply issues with approximately 10,000 individuals in these communities.

Natural Technologies of Wastewater Treatment

There is a great need for wastewater treatment for all sources of pollution < 2,000 p.e. in Central and Eastern Europe and there is an obvious potential for natural treatment systems. There is more and more scientific evidence that the natural treatment systems are very efficient treatment technologies
and there are many fine examples of the use of natural treatment systems for purification of many types of wastewater, sludge handling and use of purified water for irrigation.

The publication “Natural Technologies of Wastewater Treatment” provides a comprehensive overview about the construction, operation and treatment performance of various types natural of treatment systems. Also, it provides information about waste management and the use of treated
wastewater for irrigation. The publication is easy to follow and the theory is supported with well selected photographs and drawings.
