Sustained Adoption of a Rural Water Service: A New Systematic Review of the Evidence

A new review of safe water, hygiene and sanitation research seems just as interested in the question of adoption as we are. What factors affect sustained adoption of safe water, hygiene and sanitation technologies? is a systematic review of the literature completed an in-depth synthesis of 44 published studies explicitly reporting on sustained adoption. What did the authors find, and how does this evidence square with what our approach to a sustainable water service - Dispensers for Safe Water?

Post-Pay For Results: What Makes Evidence Action's Work on Safe Water So Different?

"We will get to 49% adoption" said Joel determinedly. We were standing in a makeshift meeting room tacked onto the end of the Evidence Action field office in Busia, Western Kenya. Joel is  the local Area Coordinator for Dispensers for Safe Water, one of Evidence Action’s flagship projects. My first impressions as the new Deputy Director of Global Safe Water on how Evidence Action is approaching sustainability and results differently.

Dispensers for Safe Water Uganda - New Project Video!

Check out this new video about Dispensers for Safe Water in Uganda, produced by our carbon partner, South Pole Carbon.  It gives a great overview of Evidence Action's approach to Dispensers for Safe Water. Chlorine dispensers are an innovative, low-cost method proven to significantly reduce water-borne diseases such as diarrhea. Chlorine disinfects drinking water while protecting it from re-contamination. Evidence Action has continued to see high adoption rates among our customers as we scale this program in Kenya, Uganda, and Malawi. Currently, over 2.6 million people across Eastern and Southern Africa have access to safe water via more than 12,000 chlorine dispensers.
