In the framework of the development of a master plan for drinking water supply in rural settlements of size ranging from 2 000 to 10 000 population, IED was commissioned to :

* propose alternative options using solar or thermal energy sources applicable to the conditions of these localities, specifying the type of operating and investment and operational costs (solar and thermal)
Description of the Actual Services Provided Tasks carried out by IED experts consisted of :
* conducting a ten-day field mission to assess existing systems,
* identifying products best suited to different demand patterns, taking into account operating costs, emphasising energy and water supply synergies both in terms of design and operation and maintenance.
