This case study gives an overview of the findings of two surveys into the productive uses of domestic water undertaken by the Association for Water and Rural Development (AWARD) with rural communities in Bushbuckridge District in eastern South Africa. The second survey was part of the DFID-funded Water, Households and Rural Livelihoods (WHiRL) project. This paper has been prepared as a contribution to the Water and Poverty Initiative that has been launched to raise awareness of the potential role of water in poverty reduction.
