India - Beneficiary Assessment of the Improved Rural Community Water project in Rural Andhra Pradesh


This activity provided funding for a beneficiary assessment to evaluate the effectiveness of OBA and Community Supply Water Schemes (CSWSs) as a tool to deliver basic access to water to the poor in situations where grid-based water supply is unaffordable.
This analysis focused on the following:
1) Identify benefits of access to clean water, compared to a situation without clean water.
2) Evaluate the affordability of registration costs and cost of on-going consumption of water for the targeted poor.
3) Assess the impact on increased uptake and consumption.
4) Evaluate the impact of OBA on operational efficiency and quality of service.


Closed. The final draft of the report was completed March 2013.
