Development Workshop Angola: Celular ICTs for Monitoring Community Water Services

04/07/2016

In January 2014, DW was awarded a Seed grant by the GSMA to trial VerAgua, a programme for mobile-based monitoring of community water points in the informal settlements of Huambo, Angola. These water points comprising in majority of handpumps, as well as solar-powered boreholes and taps, provide unreliable service due to breakages or unreliable supply. To address this, DW and our technology partner, SeeSaw, developed the VerAgua programme, a monitoring system to know when repairs or new infrastructure are needed, which was tested on 120 water points.
