Malawi Phase 1 – Survey Update

Progress to date

The Phase 1 survey is now 80% complete and the team are preparing to start fieldwork in the final district, Mzimba. The survey began in the south; Balaka was the first district to be completed, followed by Machinga, Lilongwe Rural and Nkhotakota. The rains have now begun in the south but will not reach Mzimba for another few weeks, so the survey is on schedule to finish at the very end of the dry season.

A total of 160 hand pumped borehole (HPBs) have been surveyed to date, 32 of which have been abandoned or were non-functional at the time of assessment.
