New report: From Rights to Results in Rural Water Services – Evidence from Kyuso, Kenya

From the Catalyst Project team for Risks and Institutional Responses for Poverty Reduction in Rural Africa has come a new report:

From Rights to Results in Rural Water Services – Evidence from Kyuso, KenyaRights

“Institutional transformations are required if Africa is to deliver the universal Human Right to Water to 275 million rural people without improved water services. Improving the reliability of one million handpumps which should deliver drinking water to over 200 million rural Africans will be a major contribution to translating water rights into measureable results. This study tests a new maintenance service model over a one year period in rural Kenya using mobile-enabled data to improve operational and financial performance by reducing risks at scale.”
