The main challenge of the project is to ensure long-term sustainability of water supply and sanitation facilities constructed under the project. To ensure long-term sustainability, the project has adopted a holistic approach by involving Local Authorities, Local NGOs and the Private Sector for project implementation facilitation and support. The experience is that CBOs involved in CWSSP were capable of undertaking full responsibility for the water supply activity as learning organizations with the facilitation and support of the NGOs Government and the private Sector institution. The sector-wise affiliations and adjustments are needed for effective, efficient and sustainable project implementation and long-tem O & M process. Govt, NGOs and Private sector should have to play a critical and strategic role to strengthen the institutional capacity of the CBOs. This collaboration should be an effective and efficient one with long-term expectations.
