Roadmap universal coverage 10 fold acceleration

Following a business as usual approach would mean that the rural country of Kajiado in Kenya will only achieve universal water coverage in 2131. Which private sector solutions could Kajiado follow to achieve full coverage by 2030? Purefresh and Africaqua are given as examples of profitable water "kiosk" models that meet different user needs: high quality water and convenience, respectively. 

Grant funding and subsidies can be used to leverage and attract private businesses and to bridge gaps, but in the end sustainability relies on users' ability and willingness to pay. Encouraging public-private partnerships and franchise/lease models are some of the measures that will support scaling up.

A presentation given at the IRC Event on 'Reaching universal coverage: an Agenda for Change', The Hague, The Netherlands on 30 March 2016.

Abstract

Following a business as usual approach would mean that the rural country of Kajiado in Kenya will only achieve universal water coverage in 2131. Which private sector solutions could Kajiado follow to achieve full coverage by 2030? Purefresh and Africaqua are given as examples of profitable water "kiosk" models that meet different user needs: high quality water and convenience, respectively. 

Grant funding and subsidies can be used to leverage and attract private businesses and to bridge gaps, but in the end sustainability relies on users' ability and willingness to pay. Encouraging public-private partnerships and franchise/lease models are some of the measures that will support scaling up.
