Scaling up solar powered water supply systems: a review of experiences

Over the past few years, UNICEF has been exploring new and innovative approaches to water supply, placing an emphasis on systems which are affordable, scalable, environmentally sustainable and climate smart. Solar
powered water systems have the potential to meet all of these criteria. The systems can also help provide a higher quality service to multiple communities through the use of small piped water schemes and therefore play a key role in helping to accelerate the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) on water and sanitation.

The Solar Powered Water System assessment was carried out in four countries; Nigeria, Mauritania, Uganda and Myanmar and was supported by a global UNICEF country office survey and literature review. The assessment aims to take stock of the progress made so far, particularly in terms of programming and the long-term sustainability of systems. It will also provide key lessons to consider when moving forward. | »
