This short case study homes in on interventions by the NGO Water for People to ensure sustainable rural water services in two administrative blocks, Sagar and Patharpratima, in West Bengal. These included setting up and training water committees, establishing networks of handpump mechanics, and mapping existing water points. The case study looks at the success of these interventions and highlights factors that could jeopardise on-going progress.

The case study is based on the longer paper ' Islands of success: Towards water, sanitation and hygiene services for everyone, forever in Patharpratima and Sagar blocks, West Bengal, India '.
