The Global Water Initiative (GWI) was an action-research and advocacy programme that ran from 2008-17. The project is now closed. This site is no longer being updated, but allows access to GWI outputs until 1 October 2020 when it will also close. After that date, information about the project and core GWI technical publications will continue to be available from the IIED website and Publications Library.
Community monitoring of borehole construction: a training guideline
Communities have a right to be informed about decisions affecting their water supply. This GWI participatory training enables communities to oversee the construction phase of their water supply, explaining how to recognise good and bad quality workmanship and how to intervene if necessary. The straightforward sessions are clearly structured, and incorporate discussion modules as well as practical demonstrations.
