The Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency, SIDA, has been supporting various activities within the water and sanitation sector in Bolivia since 1989, particularly the UNICEF PROANDES programme and the UNDP-World Bank Water and Sanitation Programme's new initiative: the Andean Network (UNDP/WB-AN). This review was carried out in 1996 in order to assess the results and achievements of the Swedish support as well as to make recommendations on possible continued support to the sector in Bolivia. The report, focusing mainly on the UNICEF programme, includes both a general assessment of the programme's progress and a detailed technical analysis of the work methodologies. Beginning with a brief description of the water and sanitation sector in Bolivia, the report then analyses the water and sanitation sub-project of PROANDES including conclusions and recommendations, chiefly that the project should be reoriented from being a "provider of water supply" to an integrated water, hygiene and sanitation project. The UNDP/WB-AN Programme is also described and analyzed as a project proposal for improved water and sanitation services in marginal urban areas and, as well, other future Swedish support is outlined. One of the annexes summarizes the general recommendations given in the report.
