Akvopedia is Akvo’s free to use online resource for finding and sharing knowledge about all stages of water, sanitation and hygiene projects, as well as food and nutrition security. It is filled with information on smart and affordable technologies and approaches in rural or urban settings. Project teams can use it to learn more about financing, constructing and maintaining a project to keep it functioning and stable for the long term. 

Now the wealth of information in Akvopedia is accessible on Android devices via our newly launched app, which is free to download from Google PlayStore. The Akvopedia app lets you access all the information in Akvopedia on your mobile. You can search and browse articles and save content in order to access it while you’re offline. This is likely to be particularly helpful for people who would like to refer to technical instructions while in remote locations, away from network coverage. 

Anyone can edit and contribute knowledge to Akvopedia via the akvopedia.org website. It currently contains around 2000 articles primarily in English, as well as some in French and Spanish.
