Abstract: Low-income countries have less funds to allocate for water, sanitation & hygiene (WASH) services, but those funds which are available should still be used to have the greatest service delivery reach possible. This paper shares examples from several District Water Development Offices in Malawi of innovations developed to sustain service delivery with the limited resources they do have. These approaches include using available funds to pay for lower-cost alternatives which achieve their objectives, using other networks existing in communities to increase their reach, and leveraging other sets of resources that exist in the area.
