Between April and July 2002, women and men community members and independent outsiders evaluated 63 community managed rural improved drinking water supplies, sanitation and hygiene in Flores, NTT, Indonesia. The primary aim was to gain insight into what had happened three to eight years after project completion, with an average of almost five years. A second aim was to contribute to sector policy reforms. A third aim was to produce insights, and even specific handles, on new rural water supply and sanitation projects/ programmes. The evaluation teams used the methodology for participatory assessment (MPA). This new, Indonesia-pioneered methodology combines the use of participatory methods with statistical quantitative analysis to assess sustainability and effective use of improved water supplies and sanitation. Gender and social equity are integrated in both contents and process. The evaluation took place in a stratified random sample of 63 improved village water supplies, out of an estimated total of 260. Under difficult conditions, great care was taken to achieve maximal representativeness for differing ecological, socio-economic, technical, institutional and spatial conditions. [authors abstract]
