  6. 6. 2010Short version of WaterAid in Mali Strategy: 2010-15 Executive summary With 30 out of 100 people without access to safe water and 76 out of 100 without adequate sanitation, Mali is not on track to meet its MDG targets of 80 and 60% respectively for water and sanitation by 2015. Upon implementation of WaterAid in Mali’s 2006-2010 Country strategy paper, over 360 000 vulnerable people were provided with access to safe water and adequate sanitation services. The 2010-2015 Country Strategy aims to support a further 415. 000 people in 23 Local Governments to have access to these basis services. The Country Programme has shifted and focused on new approaches including, Community Led Total Sanitation –CLTS, Equity and Inclusion –E&I, Local Governance and Water Resources Management –WRM. Though a great deal of achievements were recorded, some challenges exist around documentation, monitoring and evaluation. « WaterAid is inclusive in all that we do, setting a priority on working with the most marginalised people and other marginalised groups. We believe that people should have a strong influence in decisions that affect their lives and that communities should be active in the planning and the implementation of work for it to be successful. The needs and voices of the communities we work with, our staff, volunteers, partners and stakeholders, shape our policy and practices» The 2010-2015 Country Strategy is expected to focus on the above highlighted areas, addressing issues such as sustainability, learning, rights of access to water and sanitation and talent management. The social and political environment in Mali provides a conducive framework to implement our new Country Strategy. However, the sector faces a number of challenges, including the ineffectiveness of the rights to water and adequate sanitation to citizens, inadequate mainstreaming of E&I in development programmes , inadequacy of funding and dependency towards foreign aid, ineffective transfer of resources to Local Governments and finally, the limited skills Woman collecting water at a traditional well, Simba East, Mali of the key sector stakeholders.

Photo credit: Charlie Bibby F.T To address the above challenges, the Mali country programme has developed the following objectives which align with the global aims: (i) enable vulnerable people to claim their rights to water and sanitation; (ii) develop the sector capacity; (iii) promote sector policies and practices in other sectors such as health and education. The partners of WaterAid in Mali will continue to be seven local implementing NGOs, five Civil Society Organisations and 23 Local Governments in five regions of the country, but will also include the health and education departments. 6.2 billion XoF is the total estimated budget over the next five years. The implementation of the new Country Strategy will require the development of human resources. As a result, employment will increase from 18 to 21 staff, including new skills. Focus will be placed on supporting stakeholders to develop an efficient Monitoring and Evaluation system implemented by the local Technical Units. GAS and PROMISE will be the internal management tools to manage and monitor financial and programme work. In addition to the regular partner monitoring, quarterly joint visits will be organised to involve various players. Midterm reviews and a final evaluation are also planned. WaterAid promotes accountability to everyone involved in our work. We believe that organisations providing water and sanitation, including government, donors and service providers, should be accountable, responsive and transparent. We aim to set the highest standards of professionalism and expertise in everything that we do to ensure that our work is responsive, effective, transparent and sustainable. 7
  8. 8. 2010Short version of WaterAid in Mali Strategy: 2010-15 Introduction and background to the Country Programme The Mid Term Review (MTR) of the 20062011 Country Strategy has highlighted the need for the following: support vulnerable people to claim their rights to safe water and sanitation; develop sector capacity and promote the water and sanitation policies and practices towards other sectors including health and education. Key strategic dates of WaterAid in Mali 1999Pilot phase : 1999-2003 Urban work 2 partners 2 projects 1 Local Government • • • • 20031st CSP: 2003-2006 • • • • • Urban work Work extended to rural 4 partners 4 projects 3 LGs 20062nd CSP: 2006-2011 • Engagement with other partners • Advocacy (End Water Poverty) • Decentralised WASH services • Local Governance • CLTS • Equity & Inclusion • Integrated Water Resources Management -IWRM • Promoting low cost technologies • Learning • Experience documentation & sharing • 7 partners • 17 projects • 23 LGs Lessons learnt Key lessons learnt from implementing the previous CSP have guided the new Country Strategy. ommunityCommunity-Led Total Sanitation - CLTS WaterAid in Mali learnt in implementing CLTS that, to achieve the expected change, there is an absolute need to customise/ contextualise the approach and consider the social and cultural barriers. Rights/Equity & Inclusion Policies exist but effectiveness of the rights to WASH remains a big issue. To promote this right, we need to understand the social and cultural context which thwarts its implementation. So, strategic partnerships are needed with organisations with expertise on rights and local Disabled People’s Associations. Sustainability Ownership of the Framework by staff and partners is the pre condition for its effective implementation. To sustain our work, an exit strategy and sustainability mechanisms are needed.

  9. 9. 2010Short version of WaterAid in Mali Strategy: 2010-15 Sustainable human development, water and sanitation overview Financing Overall, the percentage of national budget allocated to the sector is low at 4% and 0.433% respectively for water and sanitation (Finance Act 2009). But compared to 2007 figures of 2.2% and 0.22% for water and sanitation, this is commendable progress. Public intervention on WASH issue during WaterAid’s field visit. Photo credit: WaterAid Adama S. Sector Coordination The development and availability of the PROSEA –Water and Sanitation document is a great progress and success. However, sector coordination remains a donor-driven approach. Some opportunities to improve sector coordination include the sector review and the CPS (Water and Sanitation planning Unit) created in 2000. Institutional capacities and arrangements The recent institutional reform of the water sector has led to the creation of two separate entities to develop and manage water in urban settings. These are « SOMAGEP » for safe water supply and « SOMAPEP » in charge of managing the assets. The rural water supply remains under the remit of DNH - National Water Directorate. 9
  10. 10. 2010Short version of WaterAid in Mali Strategy: 2010-15 Monitoring and evaluation Sector analysis Data collection and analysis are the challenges in sector Monitoring. Indeed, despite the availability of a data base (SYGMA), information on water is yet to be reliable. On sanitation, an operational information system is missing. That’s why WaterAid in Mali has engaged to support the sector to get trustworthy data which will feed SYGMA as well as the sanitation information system.

As for the state agencies, the CP will engage with DNACPN-national sanitation and hazards Directorate; DNH-National Water Directorate, DNS- National Health Directorate; DNCT- National Local Governments Directorate and DNEBAnational Directorate for literacy and basic education. In terms of the private sector, the Country Programme intends to step up its cooperation with the newly established bodies in charge of developing and managing water and assets. Existing partnership with CREE –Water and Electricity regulation Commission will also be strengthened. Also, partnerships with research and training institutions such as ENI, CREPA,2iE and WEDC will be consolidated. 10

WaterAid in Mali will strengthen its current work in both rural and urban areas, carry out a mapping of urban poverty to help the Country Programme adequately cover all communities in relevant Local Governments.
