Customer Assistance Programs and Affordability Issues in Water Supply and Sanitation

Concerns about water affordability have centered on access to networked services in low-income countries, but have grown in high-income countries as water, sewer, and stormwater tariffs, which fund replacement of aging infrastructure and management of demand, have risen. The political context includes a UN-recognized human right to water and a set of Sustainable Development Goals that explicitly reference affordable services in water, sanitation, and other sectors. Affordability has traditionally been measured as the ratio of combined water and sewer bills divided by total income or expenditures. Subjective decisions are then made about what constitutes an “affordable” ratio, and the fraction paying more than this is calculated.

Africa Groundwater Literature Archives

This archive of groundwater literature for Africa was developed as part of the Africa Groundwater Atlas project, through the Unlocking the Potential for Groundwater for the Poor (UPGro) research programme. UPGro is jointly funded by UK's Department for International Development (DFID) (UK Aid), Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) and the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC). The programme focuses on improving the evidence base around groundwater availability and management in sub-Saharan Africa to enable developing countries and partners in sub-Saharan Africa to use groundwater in a sustainable way in order to benefit the poor. The Africa Groundwater Atlas project makes available: This archive of groundwater literature related to all of Africa, including Saharan Africa, searchable by country and keywords a web-based atlas summarising the hydrogeology of each African country in maps and text.

Sanitation and Wastewater Atlas of Africa

This Sanitation and Wastewater Atlas of Africa – a joint publication of the African Development Bank, the United Nations Environment Programme, and GRID-Arendal – profiles the state and trends in wastewater management and sanitation delivery in Africa; highlights the human health and ecosystem impacts of poor sanitation and wastewater management; and discusses the continent’s policy and institutional arrangements. It benchmarks Africa’s progress towards meeting the Sustainable Development Goals and other aspirations, including Africa’s Agenda 2063 and Africa’s Water Vision 2025. The atlas is the flagship product of a four-year project implemented by the three partner organizations. There is huge potential to make positive impact with investments in sanitation and wastewater projects in Africa, improving public health, protecting water resources, and stimulating economic growth while also preparing the continent for new infectious disease outbreaks. The Sanitation and Wastewater Atlas of Africa can inform strategic investment in this sector and allow policymakers to track progress on sanitation and wastewater, making it a valuable tool to accelerate change.
