Effective demand for rural water supply in South Africa : technical and financial implications of designing to meet demand

This book investigates the effective demand for rural water supply in South Africa, considering the application of a demand-responsive approach in order to improve project sustainability. It reviews demand assessment methods and uses a case study to examine the technical and financial implications of designing for a mixed level of service. Three scenarios are developed for different mixes of communal standpipes, yard connections and house connections in which capital costs, operation and maintenance costs and possible household tariffs are estimated.
