hese guidelines have been prepared to assist Regional Member Countries (RMCs), service providers and RMCs investors working in project formulation and appraisal, sector and policy analysis in the water supply, sanitation, irrigation and related agricultural projects. The Guidelines acknowledge the widely held view that water is both a social and economic good and have been designed to assist all stakeholders in the implementation of sustainable services which support all consumers and users of water. Part 1 includes the rationale and purpose of the guidelines; guidelines for user fees and cost recovery; and guidelines for non-networked and / or rural water supply and sanitation. Part 2 includes review of AfDB user fees and cost recovery policies; international review of cost recovery; summary of country experiences; and knowledge resources on non-networked and/or rural water supply and sanitation. The document is one of three complementary documents. The other two documents consider urban, predominantly networked, water supply and sanitation and irrigation services.
