Abstract

Burkina Faso is among the many countries that joined the Millennium Development (MDGs) and in particular goal 7 which aims to halve the population without access to safe water by 2015. This commitment was assumed to define a methodology and set up a monitoring mechanism for counting population with access to drinking water. In reality, the methodology adopted is to measure the rate of access theoretical distribution systems for drinking water. She does not know the real rate of access to water drinking. In addition, the monitoring is limited to an annual measure of system functionality, and is largely insufficient, since it provides information access systems at the national level, support for common in the management of devices located on their territory. Given these facts, this paper proposes an alternative methodology and tools to know the real people access to drinking water services. This methodology is based on the concept of service and suggests indicators of evaluation and monitoring compliance with regulations in force in Burkina Faso. It relies on the concept of scale of service levels are built around the basic service as defined by standards Burkinabe. The company's technology to operationalize the methodology, therefore, to assess the actual access of populations water services, to monitor this access over time and eventually manage to scale the communal provision of water services. The methodology and tools TOOLBAR assume a massive collection of data the latest generation of phones can do. Management information collected may take place through databases accessible on the internet without requiring the purchase and maintenance of a server. Otherwise words, the alternative proposed in this paper is fully operational, including nationally. In the first part, we describe the method currently adopted by the authorities in Burkina Faso for assess access to drinking water and analyze their limitations. In the second part, we present a method alternative, centered on the notions of service, level of service and service levels. In the third part, we assume the tools to operationalize this approach by relying on illustrations concrete. In the fourth part, we explain why this method and associated tools are tools for decision support that build communal management of water services. Finally a conclusion and some thoughts form the last part of this paper. [authors abstract, translated]
