Short Description:

Overall goal

The mission of the Water and Sanitation Program (WSP) is to alleviate poverty by helping poor people gain sustained access to improved water and sanitation services. It does this by working with partners in the field to seek innovative solutions to the obstacles faced by poor communities, and by striving to be a valued source of advice to achieve widespread adoption of these solutions. WSP helps its clients to serve their clients. While the poor are WSP's ultimate clients, its direct clients and partners at the country level are central government departments, utilities, local authorities, NGOs, community organizations, private service providers and external support agencies.The services that WSP offers are: Knowledge generation and synthesis; Policy advice and Strategic investment support. The Water sector policy of the Austrian Development Cooperation (ADC) the proposed activities at the national (focus countries of ADC) and international levels will complement bilateral ADC efforts at the regional level and below to ensure the application of a strategic approach in the sanitation sector.The proposal follows the geographical and sectoral concentration of the Three-Year-Program of the ADC in order to guarantee the quality of services as well as to ensure the application of program approach with interventions at various levels. Thus the proposed WSP-AF activities will fully complement the ADC interventions in the priority sector Water Supply and Sanitation and in the focus countries Uganda, Mozambique and Ethiopia. Proposed activities for Austrian funding are: Knowledge development and synthesis on sanitation and economics, finance and poverty reduction in coordination with WSP-AF's regional finance work; working on the ground with nationla agenciesand implementation bodies to help governments and lead agencies 'make it happen'; advocacy and partnership for change (e.g.regional and national follow-up on Africasan conference- development of regional action plans)
