Water programmes progressively introduced the CDF as an innovative mechanism for the funding and management of community water schemes. Evaluation of the CDF strongly recommended that the CDF be mainstreamed into the one National WaSH Program as an alternative funding mechanism for community managed projects.

Benefits included:

  • a higher rate of implementation due to simplified procedures and decentralized management by trained community groups; 
  • effective control of unit costs due to tight local controls and local accountability;
  • high degree of functionality and sustainability associated with higher community responsibility and skills.
