Entrepreneurial models for rural, domestic water for all

Sofa 8619 part 1: Entrepreneurial models for rural, domestic water for all from SIWI on Vimeo.

Tuesday 27 August | 17:00-17:30 | Room: Exhibition Hall

Co-convenors: Aqua for All | Woord & Daad

This Sofa Session will share lessons learnt from three entrepreneurial models for rural domestic water supply in Bangladesh, Uganda and Kenya. The audience is invited to discuss how to make sure that water supply projects using an entrepreneurial/business approach can overcome inclusion challenges.

Is it possible to create a financially sustainable model for rural, safely managed water for all? Entrepreneurial models offer a way to reach SDG6, a paid service helping households climb the drinking water ladder towards safe domestic water use – yet inclusion is essential for system-wide change to rural water supply networks. How do we make sure mechanisms are accessible for the poor and vulnerable? And introduce paying for volume (meters/as you fetch), vs. a flat fee e.g. for maintenance?
