|Abstract: ||Engendering sustainability and programme ownership has remained a major challenge in water supply
and sanitation servicedelivery
within developing countries. Efforts have been made in the past to ensure
that communities are consulted and that they participate in decisionmaking
and possibly be involved in
the course of programme implementation. This however, was not able to guarantee ownership as
communities were often pictured at the receiving end and were only regarded as beneficiaries.
Experiences from the Water Supply and Sanitation Sector Reform Programme implementation in Cross
River State, Nigeria, have led to an upscale of community involvement in programme implementation.
Within this approach, communities are viewed as key players in programme implementation as they are
empowered to spearhead key aspects of programme implementation. This created opportunity for human
resources that abound within communities to be tapped with resultant improvement in programme
output, dynamism and resourcefulness with increased ownership and sustainability.|
