Constraints to Sustainable Handpump Use in Rural Water Supply ab 55.99 EURO The case of Lilongwe-Dedza Groundwater Development Area in Malawi
In developing countries, a higher proportion of the rural communities depend on unprotected as well as un reliable water sources. The sources are amenable to water borne, and water related diseases. Despite the great financing and provision efforts by the Government of Malawi and development partners,many of the handpumps are abandoned within a few months or years of installation because they lack effective maintenance and ownership.This has resulted into a backlog of extremely huge proportion of handpumps that are non-operational in rural water supply.There is now greater recognition of the need to take a more comprehensive approach to such projects, emphasizing not only on the design and construction of works but also the post construction activities including more effective and sound management and operational practices. The current policy approach has been to standardize the Afridev handpump and incorporate community based management aspect in rural water supply projects as a way of enhancing ownership and sustainability. Sustained effort and investment coupled with better policies are still required to counter the declining trend if ever MDG goal 7 is to be attained by 2015.
A study was carried out in Malawi in the dry season to compare water management techniques for dry- season cultivation of two bean advanced lines (a climber and a dwarf)in Zomba district in Southern Malawi. The study found that there were no significant differences in the amounts of water applied by different farmers to the bean crop. Grain yields were not significantly different across the treatments with mean yields of 1249 kg/ha for the dwarf and 712 kg/ha for the climber line. Socioeconomic analysis indicated the preponderance of male farmers (71) over female farmers (43) in dry- season bean cultivation. Labour supply was not significant. Gross margins (GM) were highly significant across the treatments and between bean lines. The highest GMs were noted in gravity technology seconded by treadle pump technology and the lowest GMs were realized in motorized pump treatments.
