2020 Rural Water Supply Directory - the "Blue Pages"

Would you like to see a growing list of reliable vendors and service companies in your country of work? Do you have an amazing product to sell to the water, sanitation, and hygiene community? Do you provide drilling, engineering, or consulting services to governments, NGOs, and other development organizations?

As part of improving service to WASH professionals, RWSN is trialling a new Rural Water Supply Directory for all suppliers, business, consultants and companies active in the Rural Water Sector. The listing will appear in an RWSN publication that will have a limited print run and be made available online in the form of a PDF document.

If you answered yes to any of the above questions, we invite you to participate in a new section of the RWSN Directory – the Blue Pages! The Blue Pages will offer: 
- a free basic listing (short paragraph) to individuals or companies who have submitted their information through the form below;
- paid advertising sections to companies or individuals who would like to include more details or be highlighted in the directory (see below for more details).

Let the WASH world know about your ideas – your products – your service. At RWSN, we want to foster collaboration, networking, and sharing of ideas and skills. Sometimes connecting is all it takes to spark a new movement.
