The aim of the 'Community Water plus' research project has been to give DFAT Australian Aid, other donors, IFIs and low-income country governments the evidence base to determine and justify the investment and ongoing resources needed to support community rural water services in low-income countries over the long-term. This briefing note provides the main policy implications from the research.

The key messages are: 'Communities manage!', 'Communities will pay . . . . a little' and 'Communities need ongoing support'. To sponsors: 'Go big or go home!', 'If you built it, you own it ....' and 'Sanitation requires water'.
