Water and sanitation services need to last indefinitely, but the duration of aid is limited. aid must therefore be used to help local institutions not just develop infrastructure but also operate and maintain water and sanitation services well into the future.

Direct Support Post-Construction to Rural Water Service Providers Briefing Note No. 6

Publisher: IRC International Water and Sanitation Centre
Institution: Triple-S

Community-based service providers need regular, structured support that goes beyond ad hoc technical assistance. With effective support, their ability to fulfil administration, operation, and maintenance functions improves and the sustainability of water services becomes more likely. Conversely, lack of support is associated with neglect of capital maintenance, major breakdowns, and lower levels of service.

Self Supply: The Case for Leveraging Greater Household Investment in Water Supply Briefing Note No. 3

Author: SMITS, S. and S. SUTTON
Year of Publishing: 2012
Publisher: IRC International Water and Sanitation Centre
Institution: Triple-S

Public investments in rural water supply extend first to the most accessible communities. Self supply—the development or improvement of water supplies by households largely or wholly at their own cost—is an approach that can help increase coverage in areas where it is not feasible or cost-effective to develop communal supplies. It can also supplement existing services—improving water quality, quantity, reliability, or access. Rainwater harvesting, construction and upgrading of shallow wells, and household water treatment all lend themselves to household investment.

Public Private Partnerships for Rural Water Services Briefing Note No. 4

Author: Kleemeier, E. and H. Lockwood

Publisher: IRC International Water and Sanitation Centre
Institution: Triple-S

Community management, the dominant model for rural domestic water service, works in many contexts but faces several critical challenges, particularly in regard to more complex water supplies. An alternative is to delegate operations and maintenance, or maintenance only, to the private sector through formal contracts and performance agreements. These public-private partnerships (PPPs) potentially harness market incentives to improve service delivery and leverage private capital for investment costs.

Service Cooperatives - Solutions for Rural Water Supply in Ukraine Despro Analytical Paper No.1

Year of Publishing: 2012
Publisher: Skat
Institution: Despro

After the breakdown of the Soviet Union, the centralised water supply systems in rural areas in Ukraine were no longer allocated sufficient funds for their operation and maintenance. As a consequence, many of the piping systems broke down and the level of service provision was low. In rural areas many households shifted to other sources for drinking water supply. However, a lack of quality groundwater challenges those people looking for better alternatives. A new, community-based model for water supply provision and operation and maintenance was developed by DESPRO/Skat, and has been implemented in 33 communities across Ukraine. Different organisational approaches have been used for implementation, including the service cooperative approach. In this approach, the beneficiaries are extensively involved in all levels of planning, implementation, and operation and maintenance activities. It considers equity and inclusion and looks sustainable, in terms of long-term provision of services within the current legal and economic context. This approach also shows great potential to be scaled up outside the two regions.

Publisher: WASHTech
Institution: EU FP7

This report synthesizes the information contained in the Country Technology Reviews provided by the WASHTech partners in Ghana, Uganda and Burkina Faso. The objective is to glean out, through a systematic and comparative analysis, the lessons that can be learned from the different outcomes that various WASH technologies have ultimately led to in each country, after earlier efforts to introduce them, encourage their adoption, and ultimately take them to scale.

Africa wide water, sanitation and hygiene technology review WASHTech - Deliverable 2.1

Institution: EU FP7

The aim of the review is to understand how technologies have been developed, how they were introduced, whether they have gone to scale and to start to explore the reasons why they were successful or not. The review is focused on technologies used in Africa in the water sanitation and hygiene (WASH) sector for long-term development (although some technologies are also used and have even been developed for emergency relief purposes).

This report is the conclusion of WASHTechWork Package 7.1. The work package has two aims:
1. To understand the current situation for technology approval in Uganda, Ghana and Burkina Faso, including the Knowledge, Attitudes and Practice of various sector stakeholders.
2. To assess the need for the Technology Assessment Framework (TAF) that is being developed inWork Package 3.
This report describes the baseline of the technology approval process in Uganda, Ghana and Burkina Faso. The WASHTech consortium, through the development of the TAF and the Learning Alliances, is trying to improve the situation for innovative technology approval in these three countries. By asking stakeholders at this stage whether they perceive a need for the TAF, whether they would use it and exactly what role it should fulfil, the TAF can be developed to suit their needs. At the end of the project (2013) another survey will be done to see what WASHTech has been able to achieve, measured against expectations and present KAP.

Development Policies & Practice - May 2012 From Market Logic to a Public Water Service: What Role for public authorities?

Downloads:


Author: NAULET, F.
Year of Publishing: 2012
Publisher: GRET
Institution:

Small water network entrepreneurs have earned the recognition of public authorities and donors over the past fifteen years. In a large number of developing countries, they are now seen as legitimate actors in the field of water supply in small agglomerations and neighborhoods of large cities. But their action continues to raise important questions: How can they be made more professional while preserving their ability to adapt to local expectations? How can quality standards be raised without making them less affordable? What mechanisms can be used to fi nance and supervise their activities? In practice, allowing small entrepreneurs a place in the “water market” is not enough to ensure access for the largest number or ongoing improvements in services. Public intervention is central to organize these actors’ shift to public service logics.

Ces quinze dernières années, les petits entrepreneurs de réseaux d’eau ont gagné la reconnaissance des pouvoirs publics et des bailleurs de fonds. Dans un grand nombre de pays du Sud, ils sont désormais considérés comme des acteurs légitimes pour l’approvisionnement en eau des petites agglomérations et des quartiers des grandes villes. Mais leur action continue à soulever d’importantes questions: comment les professionnaliser tout en préservant leurs capacités d’adaptation aux attentes locales? Comment élever les standards de qualité des services sans nuire à leur accessibilité? Quels mécanismes pour fi nancer et encadrer leurs activités? De fait, concéder aux petits entrepreneurs une place dans le «marché de l’eau» ne suffit pas à assurer l’accès au plus grand nombre ni l’amélioration continue des services. L’intervention publique est centrale pour organiser la transition de ces acteurs vers des logiques de service public.
