GTZ (Editor) (2009): Case Study: Water Kiosks. How the combination of low-cost technology, pro-poor financing and regulation leads to the scaling up of water supply service provision to the poor. Eschborn: Deutsche Gesellschaft für Technische Zusammenarbeit (GTZ) GmbH. URL [Accessed: 30.11.2012].

Water kiosks are a low-cost technology to scale up the water supply to the poor. The approach taken typically includes the decentralisation and commercialisation of water supply and sanitation (WSS) services, taking into account the needs of the poor in particular. This report gives an introduction to the water kiosk concept, its impact and challenges, and an example of a best practice implementation: the case of Zambia.
