Guidelines for planning sustainable sanitation projects and selecting appropriate technologies

A safe and reliable drinking water and access to adequate sanitation is not available to nearly one billion people. Rotary International has recognized this problem and has made it one of the six areas of focus for its new grant model. Bringing safe and reliable drinking water to the developing world has been a challenge to Rotary clubs and other non-governmental organizations (NGOs), with the result that an estimated fifty percent of all water projects built by these organizations have failed within five years of being built. Rotary International, The Rotary Foundation and Wasrag have initiated a pilot program that is designed to change this failure rate. The one-year pilot program, Project Enhancement Process (PEP), was initiated in nine districts in July 2012. [authors abstract]

Abstract

A safe and reliable drinking water and access to adequate sanitation is not available to nearly one billion people. Rotary International has recognized this problem and has made it one of the six areas of focus for its new grant model. Bringing safe and reliable drinking water to the developing world has been a challenge to Rotary clubs and other non-governmental organizations (NGOs), with the result that an estimated fifty percent of all water projects built by these organizations have failed within five years of being built. Rotary International, The Rotary Foundation and Wasrag have initiated a pilot program that is designed to change this failure rate. The one-year pilot program, Project Enhancement Process (PEP), was initiated in nine districts in July 2012. [authors abstract]
