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?
