Catarina Fonseca, WASHCost Project Director, will be one of the speakers at the Rural Water Supply webinar organised by the World Bank and the Rural Water Supply Network (RWSN). The webinar features 11 speakers from the 6th International RWSN Forum held in Kampala, Uganda in 2011. Catarina Fonseca will talk about Analysis and use of the full costs of sustainable, equitable, and reliable water services on the 15th of May 2012.
How can we make water and sanitation services last forever? Services are often delivered reliably immediately following large capital investments in infrastructure but then tend to decline afterwards due to lack if follow up investments and post-construction support. Organizations in the sector can spend their money in a smarter way by understanding the life-cycle costs and the level of services being delivered. In the webinar we will discus the methodology, data from four countries and we will provide inspiration examples other organizations ans governments using this approach. The life-cycle costs approach has been tested and developed with the WASHCost project.
