Abstract: The implementation of decentralization varies among the water sector institutions so the Ministry of Water and Environment and its affiliated authorities and corporations needs to cultivate the lessons learnt for better water resources management and services sustainability. These lessons learnt from urban sub sector reform started in 1997, decentralized approach of rural sector, basin committees to manage water resources and other successful examples need to be assessed for take their benefits and constraints into consideration. The weak human capacity building and financial allocations with unclear institutional roles of different actors in water sector are considered the main obstacles. That affect the performance of different institutions and their roles and responsibilities did not meet the minimum expectation at the national and local level. The government should adapt the approach of sharing the experiences and mutual learning between its institutions for addressing the local communities’ needs and priorities.
