Investing in India
In India, 4 billion dollars are annually invested in the rural drinking water sector. Hand pumps, pipes and overhead systems are supplied. But in many villages, sufficient clean drinking water is still far from being an everyday reality. The WASHCost India team gathered data on government investments in water, sanitation and hygiene in 187 villages. The data is used so that government can do proper planning for each of the budget components, against the available funds.
