Bringing water to every urban home with the power of mobile – an update on our grantee, CityTaps

In 2013, we launched the Mobile for Development (M4D) Utilities Innovation Fund to trial and scale the use of mobile to improve or increase access to energy, water and sanitation services. To date, we have awarded Seed and Market Validation grants to 34 organisations in 21 countries. We are now publishing a series of blogs and case studies containing the final learnings from the 21 grants in the second phase of our Innovation Fund. Our objective is to develop an evidence-base across mobile-enabled utility solutions that can inform ecosystem players and accelerate the growth of the sector.

This blog contains the key lessons from CityTaps’ grant awarded in 2015, and outlines their plans for the follow-on funding they were awarded in 2017. Read more
