All of WaterWays™ solutions and services are based of our proprietary "Holistic methodology to address water and development challenges in rural areas". The methodology mitigates the challenge through a holistic perspective in which all variables of the project are taken into consideration thus dismantilng the factors of non-sustainability.
We understand that the lack of sustainability is an affliction, which must be overcome. Over 50% of water projects in rural areas disintegrate within half a year after their completion, thus millions and billions of dollars are spent without the expected outcome. To adress this challenge WWS has created "The holistic methodology".
"The holistic methodology" addresses all variables of the project, specifically taking into account the 6 pillars of sustainability in a consistent format:
1. Planning considerations: Sufficient pre project planning; Life cycle cost and considerations;
2. Social considerations: WWS social models, Involving the local community as a full partner in the project from the conception stage of the project; Community Buy-in; Empowering the community to instigate local responsiveness, participation and general buy-in; and training for self-sufficiency;
3. Business Considerations: Appropriate business models enhancing community income allocated to maintenance, management, training and capacity building;
4. Technology considerations: Use of appropriate technology; Focusing on simple, decentralized, low maintenance and low energy technologies;
5. Environmental considerations: do no harm
6. Stakeholder considerations: reach alignment of interests between all stakeholders: Community; Government; Cooperative; Suppliers.
