How can we understand whether the solar powered pump is a sustainable and scalable technology to provide rural water service in many payams in Kapoeta North 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 solar powered pump technology for a lasting water service?

These are questions the Kapoeta North 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 solar powered pump in Lokosowan, Nadje payam, Kapoeta North County.
