This report presents a review of the Water and Sanitation for the Urban Poor, WSUP, programme established in 2005. WSUP is a membership organisation of NGO, private sector and academics whose approach is to engage local service providers, communities and the local private sector to develop sustainable water, sanitation and hygiene solutions for low-income urban and peri-urban communities. The purpose of the review was to ascertain what progress has been made by WSUP towards the achievement of the programme’s objectives. It combined a UK-based desk review, including semi-structured interviews with key stakeholders, and three in-country project reviews.
Chapter 1 provides background information. Chapter 2 presents a brief outline of the project context, concept and history to date. Chapter 3 provides details of the programme management and systems performance. The findings against the two evaluation frameworks described in the Inception Report are presented, respectively, in Sections 4 and 5. Certain other review issues are presented in Chapter 6 to respond to particular questions posed by DFID for this Review or which arose during the course of the study. The report then concludes with key findings and recommendations.
