This publication contributes to the broad inclusive and green growth agenda of the AfDB by sharing with development actors what has and has not worked to sustainably improve access to safe drinking water and basic sanitation. By addressing the design quality and implementation of WSS projects, it seeks to encourage government officials and sector ministers, senior managers of utilities and water authorities, consultants and development partners to consider creative solutions to the water and sanitation challenges in urban and rural areas.
Drawing from the evaluations of interventions undertaken by the Bank, governments and other development partners, this publication emphasizes emerging good practices and innovations and reflects on key lessons of successful and failed cases.
This desk review of evaluation reports of eighteen AfDB-funded WSS projects, completed between 2010 and 2012 and of the evaluation results of other development partners involved in WSS in Africa, is enriched by the exchanges during a regional workshop organized by the AfDB in Morocco in November 2013 to share evaluation experiences of WSS projects and programs.
The development community may not find all of these lessons entirely new. However, presenting them in the context of the project and its location is nonetheless useful for future WSS projects. Some findings and statements, are unrelated to specific evaluation products and have no guaranteed external validity, yet their good practices and key lessons are nonetheless useful for the design of future projects.
