This strategy plan was developed within the framework of long term and medium term regional strate- gy plan formulation. The formulation of vision, mission and identification of internal/external factors, formulation on mandate, SWOT analysis, strategiis- sues, and formulation of strategic pro- grammes are several of the materials that must be well understood in a stra- tegy planning formulation. Direct and extensive involvement of stakeholders is a charcteristics that WASPOLA intends to promote in many of the regions.

This idea, however, does not have the consent from the regional government. According to Satria Kyai, the govern- ment argues: "…collection of contribu- tion must be done pursuant to a Government Regulation". Lessons learned There are several lessons learned from the Lonuo experience, they are: 1. There are unforeseeable factors (socio- cultural aspect) that play influential role in the sustainability of the service. 2. Water service management institution plays a very important role in the sustain- ability of a water service. 3. A strong water service management would be capable of overcoming the fac- tors that may adversely affect sustainabil- ity. 4. At the time when management is getting weaker the sustainability is being threat- ened. 5. Management unit and some of Lonuo community members still believe in the importance of management unit and a good management system for the sustain- ability of the service. 6. There is still willingness to reactivate the contribution system commensurate with the amount of consumption using water meter. 7. The government is in a crossroad between upholding of a regulation and sustainabil- ity and community self-reliance. 8. Several of Lonuo problems can be resolved through a meeting among all the community members to find solution through common agreement.b Percik Desember 2005
