Contents • Context - France and Burkina Faso o What is decentralised cooperation? o The Oudin Santini Law o Burkina Faso • PASEP – Programme to improve water services o Introduction o Implementation o Results o Scaling up • Decentralised Cooperation o Sustainability and Scaling-up Rural water sustainable financing: Case of Decentralised cooperation in Burkina Faso
  3. 3. Context: Decentralised Cooperation • After WWII, twinning to rebuild relations • After independence in Africa, twinning for cultural exchange and development • Decentralisation and law of 1992 – Official framework for decentralised cooperation • Features of Decentralised Cooperation projects in brief: o Builds lasting ties – strong relationships of trust built over more than 20 years o Exchange of experience, sharing of skills, building of capacities – not just financing • Oudin Santini Law, 2005 – focus on Water and Sanitation Rural water sustainable financing: Case of Decentralised cooperation in Burkina Faso

Context: Oudin Santini Law – 1% for Solidarity Local Authorities : International WatSan budget WatSan 1% development Water Agencies and actions Public water syndicats: Operating budget Decentralised cooperation Local Authority partnership Local Authority in France in Burkina Faso General Budget for cooperation Local contribution Up to 1% of WatSan Budget Water Agency (up to 1%) WatSan Project Public water syndicat (up to 1%)

  10. 10. PASEP: Scaling up • Lessons learned from project implementation are being used to design further training sessions to build local authorities’ capacities in water supply service management • 30 local authorities from Bam region in Burkina Faso trained thanks to their French partners (Seine-Normandy Water Agency - AESN) • Similar training initiatives are currently running Rural water sustainable financing: Case of Decentralised cooperation in Burkina Faso

  12. 12. Decentralised Cooperation :Sustainability and scaling up POTENTIAL FOR SCALING UP • Existing partnerships: relationship of trust already in place that can be built on o Expand actions together • Mobilise further partners o Bring in other local authorities who wish to get involved in decentralised cooperation o Potential of the Oudin Santini Law • Favourable institutional context o Historical context o Legislative framework for decentralised cooperation o Equivalence of responsibilities at local authority level
