This paper describes the development of the “Sustainability Index for Integrated Urban Water Management” (SIUWM) for specific application to southern African cities. It reviews the results from initial testing of the index on Cape Town and discusses its usefulness in terms of sustainability assessment. The authors conclude that the SIUWM is able to highlight several critical areas of “unsustainability” in the city.
Too many WASH and WRM projects fail prematurely or are left unused because they are poorly planned, don’t adequately meet user needs, or are weakened by corruption and integrity issues.
IQC management is a participatory, step-by-step process to help improve Integrity, manage Quality, and ensure Compliance of small-scale WASH and WRM projects.
