    Forever Challenges: Local Water Resource Management By Mark Duey Sistemas de agua sin agua . Water systems without water. That’s what they... call water systems in peri-urban Cochabamba in Bolivia, where early every morning cistern trucks haul water to the hills on the outskirts of the city to storage tanks which supply water in piped distribution networks to each house of each barrio… for an hour or two until the tank runs dry. One of my favorite questions in meetings with community...moreless

    Forever Challenges: Monitoring By Mark Duey Straight A’s. That’s what every student strives to achieve. Honduran water and sanitation... technicians do the same. A national water and sanitation system monitoring platform called SIAR was developed by the Ministry of Water with support from USAID in the late 1990’s.

      Good to raise these issues of costs. But this and other studies will not pay their bills. Same comment about the stats of broken pumps: people forget... that it is not about the fact the pump works or not, this is what we call "false statistics". It's the same when you calculate the average speed on a highway and conclude that people dont drive to fast, because the rushhour traffic jams influence your outcome. People tend to forget, that most pumps that are working (40 to 60%) are...moreless
