'Utilitisation'

This research-based literature and overview paper explores some of the complexities of service provider institutions within the overall context of the delivery of improved rural water supply. Although only partially a historical overview, it might be helpful, in the context of IRC’s 50 year anniversary, to remind ourselves that 2019 is also the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing, achieving the US President’s 1962 goal that ‘we choose to go to the moon in this decade’. The Apollo program took a form of systems approach in order to solve a very specific challenge within seven years, albeit one full of unknown, as well as known, unknowns.

Abstract

This research-based literature and overview paper explores some of the complexities of service provider institutions within the overall context of the delivery of improved rural water supply. Although only partially a historical overview, it might be helpful, in the context of IRC’s 50 year anniversary, to remind ourselves that 2019 is also the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing, achieving the US President’s 1962 goal that ‘we choose to go to the moon in this decade’. The Apollo program took a form of systems approach in order to solve a very specific challenge within seven years, albeit one full of unknown, as well as known, unknowns.
