Water supply service delivery

With rapid urbanization, the provision of drinking water has become a daunting challenge. Even though access to tap water service is generally high in urban areas, the service levels, efficiency and quality of water are poor in many cities. In addition, access to tap water in slum areas is lower as compared to non-slum areas. Equitable, efficient and sustainable water supply service delivery is essential to meet SDG target 6.1.

CWAS has prepared tools for measuring efficiency, water quality and cost recovery of water supply services. Various studies have been conducted to support water supply service level improvement in key aspects like access of water in slums, 24x7 water supply, non-revenue water, water quality, etc. Various capacity-building workshops were conducted and for improvement of water supply service delivery.
