Case study: Kileuo village- the role of community-based workers in maintaining a gravity-fed pipeline with no external intervention. Working Paper No. 9.
This case study relates to the Kileuo Village in Tanzania. It is one of three interventions in the water sector examined in this research. The water system in Kileuo at the present time is unsupported by any external intervention and an aging gravity-fed pipeline is managed entirely through the existing government system with technical oversight and the payment of fees managed by the District Council and local management of communal labour and the resolution of disputes handled by the Village Council. The other case studies covered in this research are a village-level water-users association (donor-funded) and a District-wide system of water supply trusts (Working Papers 6 and 8 respectively). Therefore this case study when viewed in combination with the others offers lessons concerning community participation and representation, the scale of intervention, and the various roles of community-based workers. The questions that guide the case studies can be condensed in three key questions: a) How is individual participation in collective activity shaped? b) What is the role of CBWs in such collective activity? And c) What is (or should be) the role of institutions in pro-poor development?
