WASH Services for everyone forever : a proposal to apply the life cycle cost approach in Uganda

Understanding the full life-cycle costs of (rural) WASH services is a big step towards increasing the efficiency and effectiveness of investments in the Ugandan WASH sector, which have become scarcer over the past year. It is a major challenge to find a balance between the allocation of money for new infrastructure to increase coverage and the allocation for major repairs and rehabilitation of WASH infrastructure to maintain provision of a basic level of service. Another important issue that needs to be addressed in Uganda is to know what service level can be offered for 24 hours/7 days a week and what it costs, including the costs for the community, the District Water Office and the Ministry with support agencies such as the Technical Support Units. [authors abstract]

Understanding the full life-cycle costs of (rural) WASH services is a big step towards increasing the efficiency and effectiveness of investments in the Ugandan WASH sector, which have become scarcer over the past year. It is a major challenge to find a balance between the allocation of money for new infrastructure to increase coverage and the allocation for major repairs and rehabilitation of WASH infrastructure to maintain provision of a basic level of service. Another important issue that needs to be addressed in Uganda is to know what service level can be offered for 24 hours/7 days a week and what it costs, including the costs for the community, the District Water Office and the Ministry with support agencies such as the Technical Support Units. [authors abstract]
