Re: Municipal WASH Communities of Practice: Why MuniWASH Relies On Umbrella Associations


Illustration - Meeting MuniWASH andUVICOCI
The Municipal Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (MuniWASH) project funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and implemented by Tetra Tech in Benin and in Côte d'Ivoire in collaboration with the African Water Association (AfWA) is supporting the Association Nationale des Communes du Bénin (ANCB) and the Union des Villes et Communes de Côte d'Ivoire  (UVICOCI) to create and organize communities of practice focused on the management of water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) for local municipalities.

The proposed communities of practice will bring together mayors and those in charge of technical or operational services in the municipalities to share knowledge and build on successful methods of managing water and sanitation services. ANCB in Benin and UVICOCI in Côte d'Ivoire represent all municipalities in each country, which makes them ideal partners to identify needs and support collaboration between municipalities and the project. MuniWASH relies on the experience of these umbrella organizations to develop a culture of exchange and promote sharing of good practices in management and extension of water and sanitation services.

The primary vision of the community of practice is to share between municipalities good practices in  water and sanitation services delivery.  The deconcentrated services in charge of water and sanitation management at the local level will participate to community of practice meetings according to themes requiring their expertise and intervention. Also, MuniWASH will provide the community of practice with a pool of experts to share their knowledge for the benefit of members of the municipal community of practice according to the targeted themes.

Implemented in 16 municipalities in Benin and Côte d'Ivoire (eight in each country), the MuniWASH project started in September 2019 and aims to facilitate coordination between public and      private actors and target municipalities to improve urban populations' access to better water and sanitation services by targeting poor and underserved populations in particular. The project is contributing to improving urban WASH service delivery by facilitating private investment, technical and operational capacity building, good governance, and learning and knowledge sharing.

UVICOCI, through its Secretary General Mrs. Harlette N'Guessan, welcomed the establishment of this community of practice stating: "it is a good initiative that will allow municipalities to be in permanent contact but also to learn from each other."In Benin, Mr. Sègla Lihoussou, Executive Director of ANCB, and Ms. Alladatin Emenique, ANCB Technical Assistant for WASH, supported the initiative and encouraged the MuniWASH team to do everything possible to ensure that this community of practice engages municipalities for continued collaboration. Mr. Lihoussou requested that MuniWASH "develop attractive themes [to keep the communes ]  interested in this community of practice.” These could include good practices in strategic planning and resource mobilization for financing the water and sanitation sector by municipalities, technological innovations in tools and equipment for municipal management of water and sanitation services, and successful models for strengthening the regulatory framework for the WASH sector.

To be useful to participants, the communities of practice must understand needs and communicate information effectively. MuniWASH breaks this work down into several phases: identification, documentation, dissemination and sharing to leverage experiences for learning. During its implementation, MuniWASH is producing learning notes developed from the experiences of the project, which are being disseminated through digital platforms and during WASH events to different audiences of professionals and public actors. MuniWASH is also working with ANCB and UVICOCI communities of practice members’ to promote bilateral experience sharing and to use their website to publish its learning notes on a virtual library. During its implementation MuniWASH will develop 90 learning notes that will be disseminated through electronic channels such as the African Water Association's knowledge sharing platform. MuniWASH will use the opportunities of the quarterly AfWA meetings to share the learning and knowledge of the project with all participants in order to increase the opportunities of dissemination of the learning products that will be produced.

Re: Municipal WASH Communities of Practice: Why MuniWASH Relies On Umbrella Associations

Dear MuniWASH Team,

It is commendable that MuniWASH is providing support to city governments in West Africa aimed at improving and expanding water and sanitation services to meet critical needs. Similar to other developing countries on the African continent, increased urbanization in West Africa is challenging the ability of municipalities to deliver consistent and quality water and sanitation services as well as make improvements towards the achievement of water and sanitation-focused Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Advancing urban WASH service delivery in any urban setting requires institutional strengthening, planning, data, evidence-based decision-making, and financing at national, regional, and municipal levels. I Love the fact that MuniWASH relies on the experience of umbrella organizations to develop a culture of exchange and promote sharing of good practices in the management and extension of water and sanitation services.

Best regards, 
Chaiwe

Re: Signing of a Memorandum of Understanding between ANCB and MuniWASH: Safaa FAKOREDE welcomes the exceptional leadership of ANCB and its President



August 19, 2021 
L’Association Nationale des Communes du Bénin (ANCB) chaired by Cotonou Mayor Luc Sètondji ATROKPO and the USAID/West Africa Municipal Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Activity (MuniWASH) now work together for a clear improvement in governance and management of the water and sanitation sector in Beninese municipalities. 

This is through the signing this Thursday, August 19, 2021 at the headquarters of the ANCB, a memorandum of understanding between the two structures. Started since 2019, the MuniWASH project is funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and implemented by TETRA TECH in collaboration with the African Water and Sanitation Association (AfWASA), in 16 municipalities including 8 in Benin and 8 in Côte d'Ivoire for a period of 5 years. This project aims to support city governments, national directorates and agencies, utilities, and service providers in Benin and Côte d’Ivoire to sustain and expand city-wide water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) services to fill critical needs that reach poor and underserved community members in priority municipalities.

Specifically, the memorandum provides for technical capacity building activities for ANCB but also for the beneficiary municipalities of Abomey-Calavi, Allada, Aplahoué, Avrankou, Cotonou, Bohicon, So Ava and Ouidah, on issues related to the management of water and sanitation services, municipal governance, gender and social inclusion promotion, civil society engagement, and improved advocacy said Safaa FAKOREDE, MuniWASH Chief Of Party 

Continuing his speech, Mr. FAKOREDE recalled the four key components of the project which are: improving financial viability and sustainability, improving technical and operational competence, improving governance and municipal management, strengthening learning and knowledge sharing. According to him, in view of its status as a key interlocutor in the relations between communes and decentralization and development actors, the ANCB has played a decisive and central role in providing access to the mayors of beneficiary communes and their strong involvement in the implementation of project activities since the beginning of the project. Thus, "the signing of the memorandum of understanding formalizes the collaboration already well underway between our two institutions for a more sustainable synergy of action" he added. He then praised the exceptional leadership of the ANCB and its president, Mayor Luc Sètondji ATROKPO for his constant support to the implementation of the project. 

Speaking after the signing of the memorandum, the president of the ANCB expressed his gratitude to the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and through it, to all the American people for its unwavering support to MuniWASH project. "MuniWASH project has common objectives with the ANCB in the supply of drinking water, sanitation, hygiene in urban areas in our country," said Luc Sètondji ATROKPO before reassuring the project stakeholders of the availability of the umbrella organization of Beninese municipalities to play its part fully through the respect of its commitments.

Re: USAID MuniWASH new Learning note coming out

We are pleased to share with you the new learning note produced by MuniWASH  on Capacity assessment, a key step in the process of improving the organizational performance of municipalities.

Summary 
TheUSAID-funded Municipal Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Project in West Africa (MuniWASH) is providing technical support to improve the governance and management of municipal water and sanitation services in 16 target municipalities in Benin1 and Côte d'Ivoire2. To serve as a reference framework for the municipal capacity building program, the USAID MuniWASH project
provides these target municipalities with a governance tool called the Institutional Strengthening Index (ISI). 

This toolis deployed in a three-step process as follow:
  1. The municipalities self-assess their performance in providing Water and Sanitation services to their constituents.
  2. Based onthe findings of these self-assessments, the municipalities develop strategic Institutional Strengthening Plans (ISPs) to fill the capacity gaps identified.
  3. Finally,the municipalities implement the ISPs for improved service performance.
During theassessment phase conducted in FY2021, the ISI identified deficiencies at the organizational and regulatory levels and in planning, citizen engagement, data management, and others. This learning note presents lessons learned during the initial application of the ISI in partner municipalities.

Re: USAID MuniWASH new Learning note coming out

EXAMINATION OF DRINKING WATER SUPPLY AND SANITATION PRACTICES OF POOR AND UNDERSERVED POPULATIONS IN BENIN AND COTE D’IVOIRE 

SUMMARY
In October 2021, the USAID-funded Municipal Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (MuniWASH) Activity finalized a household survey in 16 municipalities in Benin and Côte d'Ivoire. The goal of this study was to better understand water and sanitation issues at the household level, particularly among poor and underserved (P&U) populations. Through a quantitative and qualitative data collection effort, MuniWASH analyzed the needs and the expectations of these populations.

Despite their low-income status, the study revealed there is a willingness and ability among P&U populations to pay for desired WASH services. Therefore, development interventions for these populations should focus on contextualized solutions to leverage this willingness to pay for services. Examples include the implementation of a tailored communication approach for behavior change and the promotion of low-cost sanitation technology and water supply options tailored to their living environment and needs.

Intervention areas should include a strong involvement at the municipal level where public and private sector actors and civil society organizations work closely in implementing activities that contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Re: USAID MuniWASH new Learning note coming out

BOOSTING THE ON-SITE SANITATION MARKET IN CÔTE D'IVOIRE

SUMMARY
Located in West Africa, Côte d'Ivoire has a population of over twenty-four million, of which it is estimated that about thirteen million  people have universal access to basic sanitation.

Immense challenges remain to increase access, due to a combination of low-quality sanitation products, limited technical capacity, and coordination challenges between different actors involved in the local regulation and delivery of sanitation products and services.

With its partner municipalities, the USAID-funded Municipal Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (MuniWASH), an Activity implemented in partnership with the African Water Association (AfWA), has developed a combined approach to create the conditions to promote a strong and sustainable market for sanitation products and services in Côte d'Ivoire.

Re: USAID MuniWASH new Learning note coming out

PERFORMANCE OF PRIVATE SANITATION SERVICE PROVIDERS IN BENIN AND CÔTE D'IVOIRE

SUMMARY
The Municipal Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (MuniWASH) Activity in West Africa is providing technical support to improve the governance and management of municipal water and sanitation services in 16 municipalities in Benin and Côte d'Ivoire. Funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), MuniWASH is also collaborating with the African Water Association (AfWA) as a learning partner to capture lessons and help guide urban WASH programming.

As part of this support, USAID MuniWASH facilitated a self-assessment of ninety-three private sanitation service providers in March 2022, largely composed of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs), operating in the 16 municipalities. The two principal types of MSMEs include providers of sanitation products, largely manufacturing and construction companies, and providers of sanitation services, or sludge-emptying companies. The Enterprise Capacity Building Tool (ECBT) was used to assess the performance of service providers in the functional areas of a) Administration; b) Human resources management; c) Production and services; d) Supply, inventory management, and logistics; e) Marketing; and f) Accounting and financial management.

The results of the self-evaluations showed that the sanitation MSMEs had significant gaps to fill in the identified functional areas. Higher performance was noted in marketing; supply, inventory management, and logistics; and production and services, while there were considerable shortcomings in the remaining areas of administration; human resources management; and accounting and financial management.
