This document provides the achievements and lessons learned from the Uganda selfsupply pilot Project (20062008). The pilot project followed a research study undertaken in 2005 that indicated that selfsupply initiatives existed in the Uganda rural water sector. Following the study a pilot project was launched in September 2006 and involved engagement of two local NGOs with support from Government. The pilot brought about a cost effective up grading of 41 water sources serving approximately 600 households. More importantly it enhanced understanding of selfsupply in Uganda, and a number of emerging lessons emerged. These provide a better focused definition of self supply, and of the appropriate ways and means for future scaling up.
