      The ‘Smart Handpumps’ project sees the hand pumps automatically ‘text’ local water engineers when water pumps break down or run dry. The data transmitters in the ‘Smart Handpumps’ will dramatically speed up the response by making water officials aware of when and where there is a problem, as well as when it has been fixed. Rural water supply handpumps project. Handpumps testing and development: proceedings of a workshop in China (English) Abstract. The UNDP/World Bank Project for Laboratory and Field Testing and Technological Development of Rural Water Supply Handpumps is one of the activities being carried out as part of the United Nations' International Drinking Water Supply and Author: Tschannerl, Gerhard Bryan, Kedar.

    The IMIS report 4 by NRDWP shows that ab habitations in 18 states have fluoride contamination in their drinking water, with five states having more than habitations with fluoride contamination. As shown in Fig. , iron is the most common contaminant, present in 27 states with around , contaminated habitations. Nitrate is found in 17 states with about Cited by: 1. citizens in a sustainable manner to ensure the long-term viability of all development and growth. A key means of implementation of these Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) is the effective use of science, technology and innovation (STI). This publication highlights the breadth, diversity and dynamism of the STI agenda in the Asia-Pacific.

If we look around the list is huge and sometimes some engineer may have access to some book whereas the other person may have access to another book.

Currently in Sub-Saharan Africa, between 30 and 40 percent of all handpumps are not functioning (RWSN, ). The low post-construction sustainability of handpumps is a File Size: KB. Appropriate technology is a movement (and its manifestations) encompassing technological choice and application that is small-scale, affordable by locals, decentralized, labor-intensive, energy-efficient, environmentally sound, and locally autonomous.

A sustainable rural water supply scheme means that provisions are made for its long term functioning. For each individual community the most suitable scheme in terms of sustainabiity should be determined. For many rural communities in Asia and Latin-America,but particularly in Africa, wells or boreholes with handpumps will prove to.

UntilSmart Handpump research focused on deep wells in Kenya fitted with the Afridev handpump. The borehole in front of the School of Geography and the Environment tapping the shallow groundwater beneath South Parks Road, has a Samrat handpump installed.

The Samrat is a suction pump commonly used at shallow wells in Bangladesh. The second PDF below is a synthesis of an active discussion in the RWSN Sustainable Groundwater Development community that took place during September Bibliographical Information: FUREY S.

The overarching project aim is to design, test and transfer a novel, interdisciplinary and replicable Groundwater Risk Management tool to improve governance transformations to balance economic growth, groundwater sustainability and human development trade-offs.

Heat Pump Technology, Third Edition, is designed for use by the instructor and students in a classroom environment, or as a source for independent study. The fundamentals are presented first, and then the more complex subjects are covered in by: 2 Handpumps Technical brief Main principle of handpumps There are many different types of handpump.

However, most of them are positive displacement pumps and have reciprocating pistons or plungers. In a piston pump, the piston is fitted with a non-return valve (the piston valve) and slides vertically up and down within a cylinder that is also fitted with a non-return valve.

Rural water supply sustainability has remained an enduring policy challenge in sub-Saharan Africa for decades. Drawing on the largest data set assembled on rural water points in sub-Saharan Africa to date, this paper employs logistic regression analyses to identify operational, technical, institutional, financial, and environmental predictors of functionality for over 25.

Smart handpumps have already helped reduce downtime in broken handpumps from over a month to under three days. This innovation offers new, valuable data enabling them to anticipate and respond to unpredictable drought events which currently come at enormous social and economic cost to people in Kenya and neighbouring countries.'.The design of sustainable technology relies heavily on the flow of new information.

Sustainable technology such as smart metering systems and intelligent sensors reduce energy consumption and help conserve water. These systems are ones that have more fundamental changes, rather than just switching to simple sustainable designs.
