An Evaluation of the BluePump in Kenya and Gambia

Author: Foster, T. & McSorely, B.
Year of Publishing: 2016
Publisher: University of Technology Sydney & Oxfam
Institution: Institute for Sustainable Futures


This report presents the results of an evaluation of the Fairwater BluePump, an emerging rural water supply technology in sub-Saharan Africa. Claims about the BluePump’s durability and minimal maintenance requirements have provoked significant interest within the rural water sector. This evaluation set out to assess the suitability of the BluePump as a rural water supply technology, taking into account its operational performance, the experiences of water users, the views of local stakeholders, and the broader contextual factors that impinge upon its sustainability.

Institution:


The Technology Applicability Framework (TAF) is a decision support tool on the applicability, scalability and sustainability of a specific WASH technology to provide lasting services in a specific context and on the readiness for its introduction. The TAF can be used to
> start discussion, documentation and sharing experiences about a WASH technology and approaches to scale up this technology
> assess the potential of a specific technology with respect to applicability, scalability, sustainability and uptake in a specific context,
> assess readiness of a sector to scale up this technology including identification of potential measures for improving uptake,
> monitor performance of technology and its introduction process.

The Technology Applicability Framework. A Participatory Tool to Validate Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene Technologies for Low-Income Urban Areas in S. Hostettler et al. (eds.), Technologies for Development,

Author: Olschewski, A. and V. Casey
Year of Publishing: 2015
Publisher: Springer International Publishing
Institution:


Decision-makers as well as practitioners in the water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) sector are facing serious challenges to keep existing WASH infrastructure in operation or to ensure provision of lasting and adequate WASH services. In many countries there are no tested procedures for assessing sustainability and scalability of new or existing technologies for providing adequate and lasting WASH services in a specific context.

The TAF was field tested on 13 WASH technologies in three countries: Burkina Faso, Ghana, and Uganda. This paper presents the findings from the testing of the TAF and highlights potentials and limits of its applicability
for assessing the sustainable application and scalability of WASH technologies.
Relevant documents on the methodology, the testing as well as case studies and manuals are accessible in the public domain through www.washtechnologies.net.

TIP (STEP 3) Framework for Technology Introduction Process – The TIP Guide TIP Guidelines

Author: OLSCHEWSKI, A.
Year of Publishing: 2013
Publisher: WASHTech Project
Institution: Skat Foundation and WaterAid UK


This report outlines the research process that was followed to develop two tools that are useful for the WASH sector: the Technology Applicability Framework (TAF) and the Technology Introduction Process (TIP). The TAF is applied to validate different technology options considered for a given context, and to thus assess possible blockages to their sustainability and scalability. The TAF, therefore, assists the local sector stakeholders to find solutions to overcome the stumbling blocks hindering provision of lasting services. The TIP is a guidance document to be used to steer the multi-stakeholder-coordinated initiation of a specific WASH technology towards a local WASH service that lasts.

WASH Self-Supply in Sierra Leone Perspectives and Options

Author: Gelhard, M.
Year of Publishing: 2014
Publisher: Welthungerhilfe
Institution: Welthungerhilfe/WaterAid


The paper summarizes the findings of an independent evaluation of two DFID-funded projects implemented by Welthungerhilfe and WaterAid to specifically test a market based approach to self-supply in Sierra Leone. The findings presented indicate a good potential for self-supply to complement communal water services where formal service providers attribute lower priority to target smaller remote and inaccessible communities (population of 150 persons and below).

Includes a Technology Applicability Framework (TAF) assessment of the EMAS flexi-pump.
