Models for Implementing Multiple-Use Water Supply Systems for Enhanced Land and Water Productivity, Rural Livelihoods and Gender Equity
The Multiple Use Systems (MUS) project is a partnership of professionals from the productive and domestic water sectors, and from the research and implementation communities. It focuses on developing tested tools and guidelines for multiple-use water services delivery as an effective way to use water for poverty alleviation and gender equity. Activities are currently underway in rural and peri-urban areas of five major river basins and eight countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America.The project works through so-called learning alliances to develop locally-specific innovations and build capacity for scaling up. The MUS project is part of the Challenge Program on Water and Food (CPWF).
