Introducing the SWIFT tool for environmental assessment and risk screening for rural water supply

This tool provides guidance to help identify and mitigate environmental risks to long term water availability and quality.

Abstract

Achieving long-term increases in rural water supply coverage depends on many factors. A new tool developed for the Consortium for Sustainable Water, Sanitation and Hygiene in Fragile Contexts (SWIFT) supports environmental assessment and risk screening activities for rural water supplies in low-income countries. When conducting a detailed hydrogeological survey is not an option, the SWIFT tool provides guidance to help identify and mitigate environmental risks to long-term water availability and quality.
