The Costs of Sustainable Water Supply at Network Kiosks in Peri-Urban Blantyre, Malawi

Research paper that looks at the water supply kiosks in Blantyre and the debate regarding the tariffs charged for their use. The paper argues that the running costs cannot be born solely by the end user or the Water User Associations (WUA), and that there is a need for reforms to reduce kiosk tariffs as well as to train WUAs in finance management. Water boards should build kiosk costs for which they have fiscal responsibility into their calculations, and subsidy the tariffs.
