Info about the Strategies for Implementing Biosand Water Filter Projects Case Studies from the Philippines

"Preface Research for this paper was conducted while serving as a water/sanitation Peace Corps Volunteer in the Philippines from 2006 to 2008. After two months of cultural and language training I was assigned to the Municipality of San Joaquin, Iloilo on the island of Panay. In San Joaquin I worked with counterparts from the municipality and community on various projects related to water resources, solid waste management, and coastal resource management. One of these developments was a pilot project of Biosand Water Filters (BSFs) which eventually resulted in providing a supplemental livelihood for a local I befriended. Towards the end of my service I became interested in assessing the best strategies for starting and sustaining BSF projects. I interviewed four of my fellow Peace Corps Volunteers and a Non-Governmental Organization employee all of whom worked on BSF projects within the Philippines. This paper is a collaboration of those experiences written to benefit future implementers of the BSF Technology. Furthermore, this paper is submitted to complete my master’s degree in civil engineering at Colorado State University in conjunction with the Peace Corps Masters International program."
