Rural Water Supply Set
Multibuy 3: 9781788532211
The first Water Decade aimed to serve everyone with safe drinking water by 1990. More than three decades later, the task is far from finished; it is now abundantly clear that it will take more time — in some countries much more time — than the 15 years of the Sustainable Development Goals. Despite the United Nations declaration that no-one would be left behind, without step-changes in commitment, know-how, and resources, many rural households will still be struggling for their daily water supply in 2030 and beyond.
This special collection showcases three ground-breaking books that weave together the myriad of factors that need to come together to make rural water supply truly available to everyone. The books are all Open Access, or available in print at a low price, so that this important knowledge is accessible to everyone who might play a part.
Rural Community Water Supply: Sustainable services for all by Richard C. Carter
Self-Supply: Filling the gaps in public water supply provision by Sally Sutton, with John Butterworth
Solar Pumping for Water Supply: Harnessing solar power in humanitarian and development contexts by Alberto Ibáñez Llario, and Asenath W. Kiprono
