The purpose of this report was to assess the current state of the water supply and sanitation systems in the settlement of Tsumkwe, Namibia. Data collected during fieldwork resulted in a detailed map of the location and condition of these systems, which was not previously available. Information gathered from interviews revealed Tsumkwe residents' perceptions. We have analyzed and compiled this data into a list of recommendations for the DRFN regarding a possible development plan to improve water supply and sanitation.
