Community run small-scale water systems play a critical role in supplying consumers in the peri-urban and rural areas of Kenya. However, these providers often experience problems that hinder their ability to provide reliable services to consumers and expand their coverage. Their most notable problems are limited management capacity, low operating revenues and lack of access to finance. This solution consists in combining commercial loans and Output Based Aid accompanied by institutional support and capacity building to enable community-managed water systems to expand and upgrade their services.

It is widely recognized that systems designed for one single use (either for domestic uses or for irrigation or for livestock) are in practice used for many non-planned uses, which give many livelihood benefits. In response to this reality, a new services approach emerged in the early 2000s: multiple use water services (MUS). MUS takes people’s multiple water needs as starting point of planning and design of infrastructure construction, rehabilitation and governance. MUS is a cost-effective way of generating more health and livelihood benefits than conventional single use approaches.

An extensive water services programme supported by political commitment and resources has enabled South Africa to achieve its MDG target (of halving the water backlog by 2015) in 2005, and to now chase universal access to water services by 2014.

The programme was initiated by the Department for Water Affairs with the core delivery taking place via local municipalities. A national priority reflected in the country’s Constitution, the programme has now been revised and extended to address critical current issues such as service levels, schemes viability, urbanisation and informal settlements.
