WASH Self-Supply in Sierra Leone

Perspectives and Options

The paper summarizes the findings of an independent evaluation of two DFID-funded projects implemented by Welthungerhilfe and WaterAid to specifically test a market based approach to self-supply in Sierra Leone.

The findings presented indicate a good potential for self-supply to complement communal water services where formal service providers attribute lower priority to target smaller remote and inaccessible communities (population of 150 persons and below).

A good coordination between coming projects and programmes on accelerating self-supply is crucial and collective action by the WASH sector will have a greater impact at a larger scale. Understanding local context will be a defining factor in scaling-up self-supply and will determine the roles of different actors in the process.
