How can we understand whether the India Mark II hand pump is a sustainable and scalable technology to provide rural water service in many payams in Torit County, and if it meets users' needs? How can we capture valuable learning and present experiences, drawing together all actors involved in an effective scaling up of the hand pump technology for a lasting water service?

These are questions the Torit County Rural Water Service Board seeks to answer in collaboration with VNG and IRC through a Technology Check (using the Technology Applicability Framework (TAF).

This Briefing Note captures the findings of the technology check on the India Mark II hand pump in Okulu village, Ifoho boma, Imurok payam, Torit County.
