Water Utilities Partnership for Capacity Building in Africa and South Asia
The Water Utility Partnership for Capacity Building in Africa (WUP) is working to strengthen the capacity of utilities to improve the coverage of water supply and sanitation services in Africa through six projects. Two of these projects, on focussing on environmental health and hygiene and the other on building utilities' capacity to serve low-income communities, have been consolidated to form what is now called Project No 5: Strengthening the Capacity of Utilities to Deliver Water and Sanitation Services to Low Income Urban Communities. It is a joint project of the Union of African Water Suppliers (UAWS), Abidjan; the Regional Center for Low Cost Water and Sanitation (CREPA), Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso; and Training, Research and Networking for Development (TREND), Ghana.
Project No.5 aims to develop a better understanding of the conditions necessary for water and sanitation services to reach low income communities. It will conduct in-depth case studies on particular best practices to learn what is necessary to replicate these practices elsewhere.
