    The Handbook for the Assessment of Catchment Water Demand and Use is aimed at organisations with an interest in water resources management at a catchment level in southern Africa. The Handbook responds to the growing need to balance supply-side and demand-side approaches to managing scarce water resources in river basins.   In addition, according to the last census with data on water supply systems, 15% of people in the United States are on individual water supply systems. In some sections of the country, there may be a choice of individual water supply sources that will supply water throughout the year. Some areas of the country may be limited to one source.

    Concerning rural areas, investments are financed primarily by grants. According to the – Rural Water and Sanitation Strategy and Investment Plan, Uganda's principal investment document for rural water supply and sanitation, financing for the rural sector continued to be provided by external donors, the national government, and tion coverage (broad definition): ("at least . Policy makers, nongovernmental organizations, planners, and water providers need to be informed so they can incorporate customary institutions into policies and strategies for management of rural water resources. This is an important book for African studies, environmental studies, and policy studies.

    The largest donors to water supply and sanitation in Sub-Saharan Africa are the World Bank, the EU institutions, the African Development Fund, and bilateral assistance from Germany and the Netherlands. Generally, the level of water supply in Akwa Ibom State is poor. The situation is pathetic in the rural areas where water is either scarce or costly when it is available. Many trek several kilometres every morning and evening in search of water while others depend on polluted water from ponds, stream, rainwater and floods for domestic use, thereby increasing health hazard.

Lined earth reservoirs with floating covers, or concrete reservoirs with floating covers, are an economical choice for ground reservoirs in South Africa.

For smaller (reservoirs, ferrocement, masonry, galvanised iron, asbestos-cement and certain plastic and rubber tanks may also be used. vii Executive Summary The South African water sector faces two main challenges in rural water supply: n serving the 11 million rural people (65%) without adequate access to water; and n implementing water supply projects in a sustainable way.

The Department of Water Affairs and Forestry (DWAF) has responded to this challenge. putting pressure on local and regional water supplies.
