Pathways to Progress. Transitioning to Country-Led Service Delivery Pathways to Meet Africa's Water Supply and Sanitation Targets

Pathways to Progress. Transitioning to Country-Led Service Delivery Pathways to Meet Africa's Water Supply and Sanitation Targets
  • African Ministers' Council on Water (AMCOW), World Bank Water and Sanitation Program (WSP). August 2011
  • This document is the regional synthesis of the 32 country status overviews which collectively account for 95 percent of Sub-Saharan Africa's population and over 90 percent of GDP. The report highlights the most important trends, challenges, and proposed actions for achieving improved water supply and sanitation services across Sub-Saharan Africa. The opportunities for progress are identified based on: 1. Understanding trends: The report analyzes regional performance, the relative progress of individual countries, and progress of groups of countries classified by a combination of political and economic factors. The report considers separately the four water and sanitation subsectors in each country: rural water supply; urban water supply; rural sanitation; and, urban sanitation; 2. Identifying the challenge: For each country and subsector, Country Status Overviews explore the links between inputs (finance) and outcomes (coverage) through the lens of a 'service delivery pathway', which is systematically assessed to identify the major barriers that still constrain performance in each subsector; 3. Prioritizing action: The report builds on the insights from the Country Status Overviews scorecard to provide senior managers in the sector and their development partners with proposals on prioritizing reform and investment options that match the relevant stages of subsector evolution in each country.
