The Triple-S Project is strengthening efforts to bring about fundamental changes in the way that rural water services are planned and delivered to bring about the delivery of water services that last. With more than two years still to run, the Triple-S project has laid plans to ensure a legacy of sustainability well beyond its closing date to the end of 2014.
Triple-S is a six-year, multi-country learning initiative to improve water supply tot he rural poor by adopting a service delivery approach. It is led by IRC International Water and Sanitation Centre, based in The Hague, The Netherlands.
The Triple-S Annual Review and Planning meeting (ARAP) took place at Gariba Lodge, Tamale, Ghana from 13-19 May 2012. The objective of the meeting was to ensure that teams are clear about the project's vision and theory of change, to see how this had shaped activities in output-based areas of work in Ghana and Uganda and internationally, and to plan for the coming year. This ARAP also marked the passing of the halfway point in the project and prepared for the Mid-Term Assessment (MTA) that as about to get under way.
Triple-S has focussed on building momentum for change in the rural water sectors of Uganda and Ghana and on securing international support for a service delivery approach to deliver services that last. Triple-S is organised in three output-based 'work streams', the Uganda work stream, the Ghana work stream and the international work stream. They support the delivery of sustainable rural water services in countries and influence the policies and funding practices of international development partners. In addition, three cross-cutting work streams of research, learning and communications are focussed on developing new evidence and sharing understandings inside and outside the countries. The ARAP meeting welcomed the latest addition to this process; the Burkina Faso work stream, under the USAID West Africa WASH programme, known ans WAWASH.
