Lifewater recently released a whitepaper looking into the issue of sustainability in the context of rural water supply, specifically looking at the use of local water committees for managing the community’s water supply. The whitepaper also reveals the results of a sustainability study completed on Lifewater’s work in Uganda.
The UN estimates that in Sub-Saharan Africa alone, between 30-60% of wells have failed. Water points provided through Lifewater, however, have had a 92% success rate over the last decade. Local water committees have been a key factor in our success. Excerpt from the resource
