A Dollar per year keeps rural water services here? The costs of direct support.

On Thursday, 16th November, 2017, 2.30 pm Paris time/ 1.30 pm London time/ 8.30 am Washington DC time

Rural water service providers, regardless of whether they are community-based organisations, small public utilities or private entrepreneurs, need direct support and supervision in order to provide good quality water services. Local government commonly plays an important role in providing such direct support services. But what do these direct support services cost?

Join us and presenters Jeske Verhoeven (IRC) and Bruce Uwonkunda (Water for People, Rwanda) to explore and discuss the costs of direct support for rural water services.
