Presentation of baseline mapping project

Sierra Leone Waterpoint Database
Presentation of Project and Data
Project Overview
 Project led by MoEWR with WSP & UNICEF support
 Completed in three months (February to April 2012)
 28,000+ protected, public waterpoints surveyed
The Database
 Full dataset now available online:
 In-depth information for each of the 28,000+ points
 Data allows better planning and fundraising
Database Demo
 View waterpoints
 Filter by attributes
 Show service level
 Local analysis
 Use satellite data
Results - Overview
Five Key Results
 Major investments needed & data shows where
 Seasonality is a major issue
 Breakdown rates too high
 Construction should be focused on fewer pump models
 Coordination between agencies needs to be improved
Results - Overview
Major investments needed
Survey shows total points and detailed service gaps
 28,845 points surveyed
18,908 protected & in use
 4,148 partially damaged
 5,137 broken down
 Service gaps often very local
 Detailed investment planning needed
Results - Overview
Coordination Lacking
Up to 6+ agencies in same chiefdoms just in last 3 years!
 Improve coordination to keep overheads low.
Results - Overview
Seasonality is a major problem
Up to 40% of points provide insufficient water in dry season
Rainy season
Dry Season
 Better standards for location & construction required
Results - Overview
Breakdown rates are unacceptably high
22% of points built in 2011 already impaired
% Impaired (Broken or partly damaged)
% Broken down
 Local ownership & active management shown to
improve performance and should be encouraged
Results - Overview
Focus Construction on Key Pump Types
India Mark (II) and Kardia most popular pump types
64% of handpumps are India Mark (II)
 Focusing on these key models will economize on
training of mechanics and sparepart supply chains
Next Steps
