Abstract

The HSRC has conducted a preliminary socio-economic appraisal of the project to locate a Communal Water House (CWH) in Jansenville. This has largely focused on an assessment of existing water services and the social acceptability of the CWH, the extent to which it will meet people's needs, and feedback from the community about potential modifications to the technology which could be put in place. A number of interviews were conducted, key information meetings attended, three focus groups conducted, and the documentary sources consulted.
