Accra forum
ACCRA FORUM

5th RWSN Forum 2006 – Ghana

Scaling up Local Entrepreneurship in Rural Water Supply to meet the MDGs

Date : 27th - 30th November 2006

Venue: Royal Palm Hotel, Accra, Ghana

  • Around 200 participants from Africa, Asia and Europe.

  • Field visits prior to main forum 24-26th


OBJECTIVES

  • To encourage stakeholders to consider alternative approaches to rural water supply

  • To build on the research undertaken through RWSN, as well as experiences from other organisations and communities,

  • To provide a platform for extensive dialogue and demonstration (50% of programme)

  • To provide feedback to the RWSN core team regarding future focus and linkages for the network.


MDG

RWSN THEMES

EXISTING RWS STRATEGY

SUPPLY CHAINSSustainable hand- pumps

CEB

Cost -effective boreholes

SELF SUPPLY

  • CONVENTIONAL

    • COMMUNALSUPPLIES

  • Lower capital // recurrent cost

  • More small scale private sector involvement/ investment

  • Wider options on technology, finance and management

  • Incremental progress

  • Household /community choice with government support/advice

  • Public/ private sector marketing

    • Communal ownership/ management

    • 70-90% Donor funded

    • High standard high cost, technical solutions

    • Large scale private contracting

    • Public sector marketing

    +

    MDG shortfall of 30-60%, low long-term sustainability esp. for small communities

    Sustainability even for smaller/ scattered communities


    Self supply sustainability

    • Technologies are as far as possible replicable

    • Phased and affordable improvements in supply, with minimum design standards

    • Local entrepreneurs provide safe water supplies and easier water-lifting devices and promote low-cost options.

    • Linkage is made to economic and nutritional benefits, increasing the perceived value of water supply.

    • Ownership and management are maintained within naturally developed groups and empowered to make choices and solve problems mainly at own cost.

    • An enabling policy environment, combined with low cost and high proportion of private investment, allows rapid advance for large numbers of people,.

    • Promotion of family level investment

    • Development of /support to low cost technologies (spares, maintenance services, stocks, manufacture)

    • Improved knowledge of resources
