Well and pump deterioration in Africa

Here's a briefing paper from the IIED on water provision maintenance in rural Africa. It asserts that tens of thousands of water supply points have fallen into disrepair, wasting hundreds of millions of development dollars.

The paper was highlighted on the UN IRIN news service here. If ever proper management of development monies was a concern associated with a certain political viewpoint, it is a mainstream concern today.
