In a country like Tanzania where up to 50 per cent of the population lacks access to clean water, innovations that can improve water infrastructure and provide communities with a reliable source of safe water are much in demand. Such initiatives, however, often only address a small aspect of a larger problem and the solutions put forward do not always last beyond the life of the project.

The Revolutionising Remittance Recovery in Water (R3W) project in the Arusha region, implemented by Catholic Relief Services (CRS) has bucked this trend by designing for scale from the outset. By working in partnership with others, R3W is beginning to tackle some of the major challenges concerning water delivery and helping to build a sustainable system supported by a robust water infrastructure.
