Did you know
that 36% of handpumps in Sub-Saharan Africa
do not deliver water to their communities?
The Intelligent Water Project (IWP) will transform traditional handpump installations. IWP ensures that handpumps will continue to deliver water to communities where it is urgently needed while collecting, analyzing, and automatically send- ing status reports to community members and African technicians to improve reliable water delivery.
With the current state of infrastructure in rural zones of Sub-Saharan Africa, logistical difficulties have hindered agencies from collecting data that is critical to successful planning and implementation of water management activities. In an effort to overcome these difficulties, the Intelligent Water Project is partnering with World Vision to transform the current method of data collection into a system that will automatically capture and organize data about hand pump functionality from both sensor and human sources.
