In Angola, many types of handpumps are used in the Rural Water Supply Programme. Large percentage of handpumps remains unfunctional due to various factors including poor maintenance. With a view to improve sustainability, the National Directorate of Water (DNA) and OXFAM requested technical assistance on handpump related issues including standardization, O&M, procurement, quality control and local production of handpumps.
Responding to the request from DNA and OXFAM, the Swiss Centre for Development Cooperation in Technology and Management (SKAT) agreed to provide the support under the HTN Africa Initiative. The HTN Mission comprising Arun Kumar Mudgal, Consultant, SKAT visited Angola from 06-20 September 2001.
