From Plan to Action: Water Supply and Sanitation for the Poor in Africa

Briefing/policy papers

Written by Peter Newborne, Tim Williamson

Discusses the results of research in four countries in sub-Saharan Africa, which investigated key stages along the ‘journey’ from Water Supply and Sanitation (‘WSS’ or ‘WatSan’) ‘allocations’ in Poverty Reduction Strategy Papers (PRSPs) to budget allocations and actual expenditure on sector outputs. The research has observed the kind of events or factors which may disrupt and delay the flow of funds and their translation into poverty reduction outcomes.
