The Community Water Plus project investigates the support that is being provided to community-managed rural water supplies. This is being done for twenty case studies of programmes from across India.
Community management is the common model for rural water supply, but it has limitations, particularly when it comes to the ability to sustain services over the long-term. In an effort to identify what works and what doesn't when it comes to community management, the Community Water Plus project is investigating successful community-managed rural water supply programmes and approaches across India. The following twenty are the cases that the project focuses on. These have been selected on the basis of a review of literature and expert advice. The twenty also provide a diversity of cases in terms of technology used and the institutional arrangements, and an effort has been made to ensure they represent the diversity of rural areas in the different States in the country. The titles in the overview below direct you to the full research reports. Next to the titles a link to the corresponding briefing note can be found.
The map below provides the location of all case studies.
