Description: The data set contains access to basic public services data in selected villages: 11 villages in 4 IPRDP district demonstration municipalities (Amathole, Chris Hani, Capricorn, Gert Sibande); and 4 comparison sites in 2 IPRDP demonstration municipalities (Sekhukhune; Ehlanzeni) and 2 non-demonstration municipalities (Ugu; Alfred Nzo).
Abstract: The Department of Science and Technology (DST), through its Innovation Partnership for Rural Development Programme (IPRDP), contracted the Human Sciences Research Council (HRSC) to design, construct and implement a customised Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) framework to strengthen technology and innovation capabilities and learning within the targeted marginalised rural districts. The M&E framework specifically aims to assess the effects of the various technologies that have been developed and implemented in these targeted distressed municipalities by various institutions such as the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research, the Water Research Commission, and various South African Universities. The technologies, whose objectives are to improve water, sanitation and energy in these marginalised rural districts, include the Corrective Action Request and Report System (CARRS), Point-of-use water filtration, pour flush, the Integrated Algae Ponding System, Water Safety Planning (WSP) and Wastewater Risk Abatement Plans (W2RAP). As part of this assignment, HSRC conducted impact assessments at rural communities which have been exposed to these technologies through demonstration projects. The Community Impact Assessment (CIA) round 1 collected baseline household level data from a sample of rural settlements regarding access to, and the quality of, basic services (i.e. water, sanitation and energy) as a baseline for the community level impact assessment of the IPRDP technology demonstrations. In addition, data was collected from a sample of non-demonstration municipalities, which have not been exposed to the IPRDP technologies, for control purposes. The instrument also collected administrative and household demographic data.
