Upscaling community-based partnerships in South Africa
Expanded Title:The central tenet of this research study was to identify the key factors of success for the large-scale implementation of community-based service provision; and to draft a strategy on integration of community-based water services provision. The study has developed a Strategy for the Upscaling of Community Based Service Provision. The vision of the Strategy is for every household and enterprises requiring potable water, in rural areas to have access to a safe and reliable water supply, for poor households to have access to a basic water supply free, for those that are not poor, or who use above the free basic water limit, to pay for water and for water to be conserved with an emphasis on avoiding losses in distribution systems. The Strategy provides a definition for what a Community Based Partner is and outlines range of options as well as a range of arrangements for involving the community in water supply. The research presents an approach for how local and national government can respond to water service provision in largely rural areas using community based operators. The findings from this research can also be used to target the support strategy for the 21 presidential districts.
