This report summarises the findings from the first phase of the research entitled ‘Using Road Works to Enhance Community Water Supply’. This first phase investigated the feasibility of improving ‘road ponds’ and ‘crossing structures’ to conserve water for domestic (other than drinking) and other uses. The report outlines findings from the field visits to Tete and Gaza provinces, and the learning visit to Burkina Faso. The report also includes a review of literature on the integration of water conservation into road works. The report ends with a summary of the proposals for phase 2 of the research project, which is the design and construction of demonstration structures and improvement of borrow-pits, and evaluation of their impact on the communities surrounding the structures.
