Human Resources Development; Human resources capable of implementing decentralised water supply and sanitation strategies.
Resource Mobilisation; Financial and other resources are obtained for the implementation of rural water and sanitation facilities on a demand-led participatory basis.
Service Coverage and O&M; Community-based projects are implemented and improved methods adopted by users for operation and maintaining rural WSS facilities.
The programme is managed and the TA team led by an in-house expert, Mr Arto Suominen, who took on the role of Chief Technical Advisor and Team Leader.
