Title : Provision of drinking water by rural community groups: appropriate models for sustainability

Abstract :

This article analyses the sustainable water supply models adopted by rural community groups, considering the social, economic, technological and ecological sources. Furthermore, distribution performance, institution, and sustainability were examined using survey, observation and interview methods, and the data obtained were analyzed using WarpPLS, with all predictor variables and sustainability criteria in a condition that is not good. Therefore, it was established that the social factors, technology, ecology of water sources, and the performance of drinking water distribution indirectly affects the sustainability of supply, by the mediating institutional factors, which together with economic and ecological factors tend to directly influence sustainability. In addition, ecological factors exhibited the greatest total effect, and institutional factors strengthened the community role, in efforts to improve the environmental conditions of water resources. In conclusion, the ecology of water sources and institutions was identified as the most influential variable on the supply sustainability, while the distribution performance variable confers an indirect effect, through institutional mediation
