Join the online debate on Self Supply

posted 29 Dec 2011, 01:02 by RCN Uganda
From 7/11/2011 to Januray 2012, NETWAS Uganda in partnership with the Ministry of Water and Environment are organizing a web-based debate on Self Supply.

The topic for discussion is
"Self Supply is the best alternative to enhancing rural water supply"

Access to water is limited in many developing countries because the conventional approach where water supply provision is externally driven by governments, donors and non-governmental organizations cannot solely address the issues of access and functionality. The private sector on the other hand has limited capacity to cope with increased water supply activities including implementation and provision of cost effective Operation and Maintenance support. Therefore are  self supply initiatives a solution to increased access and coverage?

The outcomes of the debate will feed in the deliberations of the National forum on Self Supply due to take place on 5/12/2011 to 6/12/2011.
