Improved Community Water in Andhra Pradesh
For years, in the rural coastal areas of Andhra Pradesh, there were no alternatives to the highly contaminated tap water from government-owned piped water systems, which were poorly operated and maintained.
In May 2007, the Global Partnership on Output-Based Aid (GPOBA) launched an output-based aid (OBA) scheme to improve the quality of and access to safe water in coastal areas of Andhra Pradesh (AP), India. The project set out to deliver 25 water purification plants, improving access to clean water for 75,000 people.
This Lessons Learned discusses project insights gathered at the end of this project.
