Uganda: Rural Subcounties with Safe Drinking Water Coverage Below 60 Percent, 2008
This map highlights the rural subcounties with safe drinking water coverage rates below 60 percent. All of these areas will require special attention and additional investments to catch up with the progress at the national level.
In comparison to high-performing regions, many subcounties with the lowest coverage rates are facing two major challenges -- greater dependence on costly deep boreholes and generally very poor groundwater potential (MWE, 2007).
