1 Benchmarking for Pro-poor Water and Sanitation Services Provision: an Emerging Assessment Framework

2 Objective The objective of the project is : to propose improvements to the existing benchmarking tools to allow utilities and others to develop a much stronger focus on service provision to the poor

3 Key Stakeholders subject to Pro Poor Benchmarking Government Regulator / Supervisory Body Utility Communities/End Users

4 Focal areas for Pro-poor Benchmarking Five focal areas: - Policies, arrangements and capacities - Collaboration of actors - Pro-poor Tools - Sustainability - Quality of WatSan Services Provision

10 Conclusions 1.The assessment component of the pro-poor benchmarking system is able to determine both the: o Capacity of the Key Stakeholders to enable services delivery to the poor o Performance in pro-poor services delivery 2.Information and data collection is enabled by a mix of secondary data, interviews, focus group discussions, questionnaires and observation (allowing some triangulation) 3.The system appears to yield internally coherent results suggesting linkages between deficiencies in enabling processes on the one hand and service quality on the other

11 3.Concerning the 13 indicators, the findings from the field suggests that: o Additional, in-slum indicators may be needed (e.g. events and socio-political dynamics in the slums) o The items and criteria that the indicators are made up of will need review and improvement o Sanitation needs to be distinguished from drinking water throughout 4.The benchmarking framework now covers a variety of actors that jointly enable/disable services provision to the poor, however: o Disaggregation of the framework to cover individual actors may be more effective Conclusions
