Abstract/Summary

The Sustainable Development Goals set a vision for universal access to safely managed household water-supply. However, in rural Africa and south Asia basic access achieved through communal boreholes will remain the main source of improved water supply for decades. Understanding the relative drivers of the functionality these supplies is critical to future service provision. There is currently no sector-wide definition of borehole functionality, and establishing a clear definition, and how to measure it, is a critical first step.
