Abstract: Third Water Supply and Sanitation (Sector) Project (TWSSP) assisted by ADB and NORAD is aiming at providing safe drinking water and sanitation facilities for one million of rural population in Sri Lanka. TWSSP is focusing its implementation activities on several important factors such as technical soundness and appropriateness of the technology, existence of strong Community Based Organizations (CBOs) and reliable backup support system. In order to make sure that these aspects are addressed, project activities are being carried out in par with the national policy for rural water supply and sanitation sector. The underlying principles of the rural policy highlights the importance of the sustainability of the facilities provided along with the value of water, hygiene education and environmental considerations. This paper discusses the innovative post project strategies adopted to ensure the sustainability of the facilities provided through establishing strong CBOs and backup systems.
