Making Piped Water to Households Affordable and Available
By: Lauren Cuscuna, Joseph Sam Cherbu, and Charles Yeboah
Recognizing the need to bring customers up the water services ladder, Safe Water Network has been investing in household connections since 2013. However, by 2019, community standpipes still accounted for 85% of water volumes, indicating underutilization of the organization’s capacity for household connections. Drawing from past experiences and forging partnerships with other organizations, a comprehensive Household Connection Expansion Program was developed to address both demand and supply-side barriers to scale.
