Kabarole District Pay-As-You-Fetch Research Report

This is a report of the research study commissioned by IRC Uganda to investigate whether the Pay-As-You-Fetch (PAYF) model incentivises preventive maintenance of hand pumps in Kabarole and Bunyangabu districts in Uganda. PAYF is a method for pre-payment of water where a caretaker or an operator of a hand pump collects money from users per unit of water they collect.

The study investigated the factors leading to success or failure of the PAYF tariff collection model in the 16 communities where it was introduced in 2016 by IRC Uganda and Kabarole district local government. It also assessed if the PAYF model leads to any exclusion from water services in communities where the PAYF model is implemented.
The study was conducted in 2019 under the USAID-funded Sustainable WASH Systems (SWS) Learning Partnership. This research report presents key findings and recommendations for strengthening the PAYF model in Kabarole.

Abstract

This is a report of the research study commissioned by IRC Uganda to investigate whether the Pay-As-You-Fetch (PAYF) model incentivises preventive maintenance of hand pumps in Kabarole and Bunyangabu districts in Uganda. PAYF is a method for pre-payment of water where a caretaker or an operator of a hand pump collects money from users per unit of water they collect.

The study investigated the factors leading to success or failure of the PAYF tariff collection model in the 16 communities where it was introduced in 2016 by IRC Uganda and Kabarole district local government. It also assessed if the PAYF model leads to any exclusion from water services in communities where the PAYF model is implemented.
The study was conducted in 2019 under the USAID-funded Sustainable WASH Systems (SWS) Learning Partnership. This research report presents key findings and recommendations for strengthening the PAYF model in Kabarole.
