 The WSDP covers four sub-sectors: Water Resources Management and Development (component 1) ; Rural Water Supply and Sanitation (WSS– component 2) ; Urban Water and Sanitation  (component 3) ; and Institutional Strengthening and Capacity Building (component 4). A Sector Wide Approach to Planning (SWAP) has been adopted and is aimed at meeting a resource shortfall in the Government’s budget over the next 5 years.

In Ouagadougou, there are structured, formal areas of housing, as well as unplanned settlements on the outskirts of the city.

The national company (ONEA), responsible for  the city’s water supply, only serves planned and structured settlements, where the service offer includes water supplied through a household connection or standpipe. The innovative solution for the unplanned settlements on the other hand involves extending the water supply network and delegating the management of the water supply service to private operators.

This solution enables you to transport 15 water storage tanks that can store 21,000 liters of water on the back of a motorcycle. The product has the convenience of being right outside your home, is low cost, and has a tap just like piped water supplies.   EnterpriseWorks/VITA (EWV) is in the second year of a commercial pilot in Uganda introducing an award winning rain water storage solution called bob™.  Bob is a flexible container that is a bag in a bag; the outer bag provides strength and the inner bag impermeability. Bob folds up into a packet the size of a briefcase yet when filled holds 1400 liters of rainwater and retails for only about twice the price of a 200-liter plastic barrel but provides seven times the water storage capacity.
