World Bank assisted 02nd community water supply and sanitation project was commenced in June 2003 and provides water supply and sanitation facilities for the selected communities in 02 provinces of Sri-Lanka. Deviating from the conventional subsidy based sanitation grant program, project (CWSSP) has given the new direction to establish community managed, self-financed sustainable sanitation program on a pilot basis. This innovative approach is put into operation in 18 villages of Central province and 12 villages in North –Western province at present. Communities and Community Based Orgernisations (CBOs) are the nucleus of this implementation process and the application of the system was assured through the establishment of Sanitation Revolving Fund (SRF).
