CAWST Study on Drinking Water Technologies

Woman holding 2 years worth of safe water.A recent Centre for Affordable Water and Sanitation Technologies (CAWST) study, conducted with UNICEF and Agua Pura Para el Mundo in Honduras, showed the importance of alternative drinking water technologies. Water treatment and latrine infrastructure in many Honduran communities often is abandoned, breaks down beyond repair or is poorly maintained. The study calls for alternative strategies to infrastructure-centered approaches.
