Akvopedia is filled with information on smart, affordable water and sanitation technology for rural or urban settings. It works just like Wikipedia and includes useful material on key technologies, service delivery, finance, promotion and support systems. Anyone can contribute to, edit or use Akvopedia materials in their organisation, under a Creative Commons license. Our full time editor maintains quality, supported by a team of experts.
The essential reference for doers and donors
Akvopedia gives everyone the crucial understanding needed to fund or specify water and sanitation projects. It complements Akvo’s online matching and reporting systems and helps maintain project quality. Everyone can easily refer to Akvopedia to understand key terms, technologies or approaches.
