Replication strategy or expectation:
What plan, if any, do you have for replicating your disaster strategy? What policy, legal or institutional constraints must be overcome for you to be successful?
Despite the novelty of the approach in MAdagascar, BushProof has already been able to use the technique in other disasters, notably West Darfur (Sudan) and Sri Lanka (tsunami), where our experts assisted relief NGOs with the rapid construction of wells for refugee camps. In Madagascar, a main barrier to scaling up is for now realising substantially increased investments, which would allow a much more rapid increase in access to safe water.
Which specific areas - and why - in your field would benefit most from investment by corporations, foundations, and other investors:
Where well jetting is concerned, BushProof works mostly in partnership with NGOs. Forging stronger alliances with committed donors, either through BushProof directly or through partner NGOs, will be a key element to ensure that well jetting lives up to it's promise or delivering safe water to hundreds of thousands of people.
