Using GIS Cloud Technology to Map Taps in Kumba

PROJECT JUSTIFICATION

This project will serve quality purpose for a long term for the following reasons:

  • Enable the local population to easily locate portable water points
  • Increase Access to portable water
  • Reduce the number of affected persons with diseases related to poor water and sanitation hygiene
