INTRODUCING THE PROJECT
The EDEN’R project consists of setting up the infrastructure that will provide drinking water to the inhabitants of Urisa village from a natural water source identified 8km upstream. Capturing, pumping and routing water will require electrical energy to power pumps. Since the village does not benefit from electricity, this energy would be supplied by photovoltaic panels.
In order to ensure the sustainability of the facilities, a training component is essential. The aim will then be to provide the necessary organizational and technical foundations to make this pilot project a sustainable project, reproducible on other villages and carried by local actors independently.
Experts-Solidaires and the HAMAP Humanitarian association are collaborating on the implementation of this project.
