To "ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all (SDG 6)," water service providers need to innovate and adapt successful service models from other sectors. Launched on World Water Day, March 22, FIBR's PAYGo Water Brief explores how digital tools (e.g., smart meters and mobile payments) developed as part of PAYGo solar in East Africa can be combined with new business models to scale in-home water connections in pursuit of clean water for all.

This paper considers PAYGo models and minigrids in the energy sector to identify opportunities to research and test their application to the water sector. The paper also describes the Safe Water Network, a US-based not-for-profit organization that is testing sustainable water service delivery models in both India and Ghana.
