Water is used for many things in rural areas including domestic use (drinking, washing), irrigation of crops, inputs into small businesses, livestock watering, fisheries to mention but a few. Investments in rural water provision usually focus on single use, either domestic or irrigation. There has been a move in recent years to add value to such investments by thinking about multiple uses of water when designing investments: the terms “domestic +” and “irrigation +” have been coined.
A Multiple Water Use Services (MUS) workshop was recently held in Leiden to develop methods of assessing cost and benefits of water investments when viewed through the “MUS lens”.
