Triple-S is a six year multi-country learning initiative that will contribute to addressing the challenge of sustainability of rural water supply. This is the vision of Triple-S: sustainable rural water services at scale. To achieve this vision means shifting from a focus on constructing infrastructure under projects or programmes towards the delivery of services that can be supported and sustained indefinitely. This shift has implications both for government and other national stakeholders – who must take an increasing leadership role – as well as for development partners, who must move from a fragmented and competing way of working to a more coordinated and harmonised approach to supporting government-led priorities. [authors abstract]

This is part of the Triple-S (Sustainable Services at Scale) Water services that last-project.
