WaterAid carried out analyses in 12 developing countries in Africa and Asia
to identify key blockages and systemic weaknesses that stand in the way of
development finance reaching local authorities responsible for delivering
water and sanitation services. The research showed that in spite of policy
commitments to decentralisation, local governments are consistently
by-passed by those financing development, resulting in a high risk of
duplication and inequitable coverage. Recommendations are provided for the
different stakeholders - national governments, donors, NGOs and local
government - to improve financing and governance at the local level.
