Water services are not for free. To increase affordability an easy measure is introducing progressive pricing. An example is water services in Belgium. The more you use the more you pay progressively. Large consumers (normally spoken rich people and industries) subsidize small users (normally poor). The current practice is often the other way around: the poor pay relatively more, because they pay per bucket (where there is no connection to public water supply) or large users are subsidized (often industries).

The crisis of lack of access to Water and Sanitation services, affects the poor most. Poor people residing in rural areas and especially in urban slums do not have access and public and private servie providers do not have plans to deliver services to poor areas.

Policy makers are seldom aware of the challenges being faced by the poor in accessing services, mainly because the voices of the poor are rarely heard in debates on problems and solutions on water issues.

To address this problem, WASH Journalists in the West Africa region where about 300million people lack access to WASH services, formed a regional network with the strategic objective of amplifying the voices of poor people on WASH issues and increase visibility of lack of access of the region’s poor to water and sanitation services, and generate discussions on practical, low cost, and people centred programmes to resolve this challenge.
