Re: Base-of-the-pyramid Markets and Customers Workshop at Eawag July 2nd!

The organisers of this event on "Serving base-of-the-pyramid markets & customers: From pilot to scale-up" have made the presentations available on their website (thank you!):
www.swisswaterpartnership.ch/events/bop/

They are (for the links click on the URL given above):
  • Chlorine dispensers: a low-cost approach to safe drinking water (Naomi Rosenthal, South Pole Carbon AG)
  • Taking a water kiosk business in Senegal from pilot to scale (Renaud de Watteville, Swiss Fresh Water)
  • Meeting the basic needs of the urban BoP customers (Jessica Altenburger, x-runner ventures GmbH): this link opens a new webiste with a video about the project in Lima
  • Testing and scaling up business models for safe water (Urs Heierli, Antenna Technologies Foundation)
I was interested to see that the X-runner projects from Peru was presented (see also here on the forum: forum.susana.org/forum/categories/52-mob...iloting-in-lima-peru )

I very much like the concept of container-based sanitation but so far we have no real evidence yet that it could actually work "at scale". The video by x-runner says they are reaching (only) 37 households, or 1000 people so far:
