In Uganda, large segments of the urban poor are not connected to piped water systems and are therefore paying large sums of money for consuming water of inferior quality from private vendors. National Water and Sewerage Corporation (NWSC), in charge of providing water services continually seeks to improve coverage for serving the urban poor through piped schemes. To support this effort GPOBA provided funding to design an OBA scheme to focus on extending connections to Kampala’s urban poor using performance-based subsidies. The project targets the poor living in slum areas in and around Kampala as well as the peri-urban areas and provide these poor with subsidized connections to the water supply network.
