Focus on urban low income areas (planned and unplanned)

Improve adequate access to safe water and sanitation

Build capacity at Water Service Provider (WSP) level

Enable WSPs to reduce non-revenue water and increase revenue

Ensure that low income areas are perceived a business opportunities

Facilitate the exchange of best practices between WSPs

Monitor impact and data presentation (MajiData projects layer)
