The purpose of the Water and Sanitation Sector Project was to strengthen the National Water Supply and Drainage Board (NWSDB), the national water authority in Sri Lanka. The Water and Sanitation for Health Project (WASH) involvement in the Sri Lankan project began in 1984 and continued through an impact evaluation conducted in 1993. This report presents the nine lessons learned from this ten-year experience. These lessons cover the management of the project, the role of outside consultants, personnel management, political support for changes, co-operation of other external support agencies and the reward and incentives structures within NWSDB.
