Emphasis is on ensuring safe access to improved drinking water within the rural areas. This is being achieved through rehabilitation, upgrading and or construction of appropriate and environmentally sustainable new water supply system infrastructure (systems comprising recharging and conserving mechanisms, solar and/or electric powered piped water supplies, rehabilitation and/or upgrading of hand dug wells, construction of rain water harvesting cisterns). Strengthening the capacity of partners within the areas of monitoring, operation, maintenance, and management of the rural water supply systems is also part of this programme.
