The People’s Pump is a traditional handpump that has been used for several years by rural villagers in Lao PDR. This handpump can be manufactured with local materials and is easy to maintain. The pump is gaining recognition within the sector and is excepted to be included within the water supply informed choice options for demand assessment in Lao PDR. This paper briefly reveals the story of the People’s Pump – a story of how a people-centred technology can influence provision of affordable water supplies to rural communities.
