The introduction of a new concept cannot be rushed. It is necessary to go through a process in which stakeholders have the opportunity, at various stages, to assess its relevance to them as members of government or local administration and, most of all, as endusers. Mali was one of the first countries to start this process with respect to Self Supply in rural water.
