Chapter I – Executive Summary and Overview. The Initial Phase of the Water for African Cities (WAC) project has provided excellent value for relatively modest investments. It has amply demonstrated the validity of three interrelated programme concepts to the realization of integrated urban water resource management: water demand management (WDM), the protection of water sources, and the introduction of water into school education. The project has been well conceptualized in virtually all of the cities within which it has operated and delivered successful results, indeed quite remarkable results given the relatively small amounts of funds disbursed. It has leveraged funds within countries, showed the potential to change the attitudes of senior decision makers and has shown that the methods used can yield significant results. This is a very promising project approach which should be extended beyond the pilot phase and to other cities in Africa and beyond. Indeed, it is now being applied in Asia. The importance of the challenge can hardly be underestimated. Today 300 million Africans have no permanent, accessible source of water. Today‟s 140 million urban population in African will rise to 500 million by 2020. These are cities with fragile or non existent tax bases, burgeoning informal settlements and inadequate infrastructure. The situation regarding urban water management is not significantly better in many areas of the developing world which suggests a high potential for this approach. As noted, the WAC project has three broad components. The initial phase has demonstrated that these are valid and sound, can yield important results, and have the capacity to mobilize people, resources, excitement and conviction. The hypotheses underlying the components are:  That a major accessible source of water for African cities can be found within existing water systems through fixing leaks, unaccounted-for-water, and better water consumption habits at the consumer level.  That protecting existing and potential water sources from current and future pollution is essential, and requires community development and mobilization techniques,  That developing a new Water Wisdom from senior decision making to the primary school level is a necessary and vital complement to these two endeavours. As might be expected early in the project, the three project components are at greatly varying levels of impact, completion and achievement. There should be no limit to the successful use of the WAC model in other cities of Africa and around the world. Future phases of this project – in Africa and beyond – should definitely be undertaken, but administrative issues need to addressed and solved. The existing very hardworking headquarter staff resources are stretched with current responsibilities; new delivery modalities are needed. The very success of the conceptualization and start up phases create expectations and momentum and there have been difficulties in getting promised inputs in a timely manner.

The project could be strengthened by new partnerships – for extending the impact of the concepts, for bringing increasing funds in support of the project, and for providing – under the strong policy direction of Habitat - quicker and more timely administrative response. This report is focused on an assessment of the impact to date of the WAC model, its potential for replication and on forward looking suggestions for changes and adjustments in that model. The specific accomplishments in each city have been detailed in several project report documents and they are used illustratively in this report, not described in detail as is the case elsewhere. There is an itemized accomplishment lists at Annex 1. Nor will this report cover the ground of internal financial management and project control of every project; there are UN systems and procedures in place, including annual external audits by UN Headquarters The initiative for this forward looking assessment was undertaken by Habitat; the principal consultant and the on ground consultants were recruited by Habitat to assess the
 Enhanced institutional capacity for urban water resources management developed through project intervention  Human resources capacity for urban water resource management through project intervention  Improved channels for region wide sharing of information and experience on urban water resource management issues Outcome indicators:  Policy changes in urban water sector, attributable to project intervention  Improved awareness of water conservation issues among user communities and policy makers  Improved access to city managers and sector professionals of management information and information on good practice of urban water resources management  Improved coordination among urban water and environmental sector policy makers in urban water resources management Annex II  Development of new programme components, based on demands from cities  Further development of regional capacity for integrated water resources management  Guidance on improved collaboration with global programmes and other relevant regional initiatives  Expansion of programme activities to other countries/cities  Review and recommendations on the future programme management strategy  Establishing a broad based funding strategy

This evaluation was carried out with the assistance of seven On Ground consultants. They are listed at Annex, together with the methodologies used and the persons met by the Chief Consultant. Without the on ground consultants, and their commitment to this assessment and forward looking strategy, it could not have been written. The cooperation of the Headquarters Habitat staff has been unflagging.

Chapter II – The impact of the initial phase of the WAC Project.

“Development effectiveness reflects the extent to which an institution or intervention has brought about targeted change in a country….(it) is influenced by various factors, beginning with the quality of project design”….UNDP Development Effectiveness November 2001 How has this project worked? Seven African Cities – Addis Ababa, Nairobi, Johannesburg, Lusaka, Abidjan, Accra and Dakar – were selected. Work has proceeded in varied and different patterns adapted to the specific circumstances of each city, to implement the three core themes. Pilot or demonstration projects were undertaken, backed by public awareness campaigns. City Managers were appointed as the key officials for the projects. They have met biannually. They have the responsibility for the first two project components, and sometimes have linkage with a different specific group or team named for the third or education component. Activities to carry out the three project themes have been undertaken in all 7 cities. Funding: the demonstration and public awareness/info campaigns were financed by UNFIP, and never exceeded $200,000.00 per city. In total about $2.4m of funding has been channeled through Habitat ($2.1m for demonstration projects, $ .3 m for Public Awareness) from mid 1998 to 2002. This has been buttressed by funds from several other donors. In particular, a Netherlands project beginning at the time of this assessment will address the needs to enhance the capacity of professionals in the water industry. (Approximately $1m US dollars). Sweden has played an important role in financing the Schools Education project.

Overall Project Impact – a judgment 2.3 This report would suggest that as the end of the initial phase of the project nears, very important overall project results have been achieved both within and over and above the individual component results:  There is a good level of national and international consciousness of the WAC project itself  There is increased awareness in the project countries of the importance and potential contribution to improved water management that can be made in particular by Water Demand Management. o To date, results are less for the other two, but there is excitement in particular about the Schools Education component.  Important information exchange has taken place between the African Cities.  An impressive quality and quantity of information and communication material, sector publications, glossies, newsletters and others have been well distributed, and crafted to be appropriate to the occasion

4

Water for Africa Cities: A Forward Looking Assessment Margaret Catley-Carlson, October 2002

 Within Africa, there has been an elevation of the concepts in the Programme. A Ministerial Advisory Group has met twice and has endorsed and declared in favour of the project via a Declaration in The Hague.  There has been an elevation in the status, and expansion of the horizon of City Managers themselves.  The project works on the basis of African expertise applied to real world condition in African cities. There has been initiation of dialogue and information sharing among African Cities on a series of topics heretofore little if at all discussed. Impact of the Individual Components Public Awareness: Growing an awareness of water issues. 2.4 The priority given to communication and public awareness has been one of the innovative elements of the WAC project. In city after city, there was evidence that awareness has changed, certainly at the senior levels of government, on WDM in particular, and in many cases on the need for environmental protection of water sources. Enthusiasm for the schools education project is everywhere strong.

2.4.1 Mayors, Councilors, senior and junior officials all displayed a good deal of conviction that these new approaches must be part of the way forward. The school education project elicits great enthusiasm. Many senior officials expressed confidence that their government would move differently in the future. The role of the Habitat project in making these improvements happen is acknowledged by most as having been seminal. . “They make you see deficiencies”, “they help you to see linkages”. The conceptualization of issues and creating alliances to look at issues was seen by many as the strongest element in the overall program. 2.4.2 There were different measures used to promote this increased awareness:  Very good and appreciated publications: regular newsletters with broad outreach, good publications  An excellent pamphlet on “Public Awareness Campaigns for Good Urban Water Governance” was produced.  Surveys of public opinion regarding water services in Nairobi  A water use campaign in Kenya, beginning with a brochure for water staff.  A water week in Addis which boosted both public awareness of water issues and the esteem with which the utility was seen.  A public awareness campaign in schools in Johannesburg. 2.4.3 In the instances where there was no communication element in the program, there was a keen awareness that this was „missing‟ element in Phase I:  Ghana – “Project has had a rather limited impact on perceptions within the general public due to the lack of implementation of the public awareness component of the project.”

5

Water for Africa Cities: A Forward Looking Assessment Margaret Catley-Carlson, October 2002

 Dakar – public awareness activities must be done and must accompany the total process of implementation of project components.  Abidjan – without public awareness and communication efforts coupled with publicity for the programmes there will be neither donor awareness or more important, public support.  Lusaka - Public awareness was not considered as a separate component within the programme, yet strong opinions were given in support of this.. Water Demand Management (WDM) 2.5 What is Water Demand Management? In the plainest possible language, effective WDM or water demand management requires that serious budgetary and management attention should be given to what happens to city water after it has been collected, stored and treated, and once it enters the mains and pipes of the city. In short there needs be systems to respond to fix leaks, find unaccounted for water, and to spotlight serious misuse of the systems. Where there are meters, functional billing systems and sufficient costs associated with water service delivery, the consumer will also have an interest in these savings after the meter. Where none of the above applies, as often the case for unmetered water delivery and for public institutions such as hospitals, prisons, and universities, water often runs uselessly from badly functioning taps, continuously functioning urinals, unreported or unfixed leaking pipes etc. If all the above has been successfully done or implemented, the end result will be the delivery of water to the end consumer at the lowest possible price.

2.5.1 The Pilot Projects. The WAC project has approached WDM in variety of ways in different cities. In most, selected activity centered on pilot or demonstration areas with the specific intent that successful activity in this area would provoke the galvanizing activity necessary for political and administrative authorities to promulgate and enforce regulation, increase budgets, adjust policies, create units in order that the success of the pilot unit would ultimately spread across the whole city. There has been a real variety of activity in these pilot programmes:  Addis: retraining within the utility and working on the relationship with major water consumers  Nairobi: WDM strategy development based on a pilot project and a Public awareness survey and campaign  Johannesburg: support to ongoing work on WDM  Lusaka: a pilot project in a police camp and a residential neighbourhood  Abidjan: a concentration on groundwater and on services to the poor  Ghana: a pilot project at Lagon University,  Dakar: a pilot at the University plus retrofitting the water taps and facilities of a publicly managed apartment building This activity has had important impacts

6

Water for Africa Cities: A Forward Looking Assessment Margaret Catley-Carlson, October 2002

2.5.2 The first and most important has probably been impact on decision makers themselves. Across the community of those interviewed it was clear that notable education had taken place on the role of WDM and the very real role it could play in urban water management. Many senior officials expressed confidence that Water demand units would be formed and that the activity would be budgeted for in the future much more so than in the past.  Kenya : a useful role of the project has been to bring to focus the inadequacies of the existing metering system and thus the potential huge quantities of unaccounted for water hitherto assumed metered.  Ghana: Through the project, both senior and junior staff involved in project implementation, “seem to have a better appreciation and a more crystallized approach to water demand management.”  Lusaka – the utility “is now broader in its relevant scope of activities, understanding the relevance of the sector” 2.5.3 The second most important impact has been the imprint left by this project in changed management structures and new managerial arrangements.  In Addis a whole Government strategy has been built around the development and institutionalization of WDM activities, including the establishment of WDM unit within the existing organization structure of AAWSA, and the decentralization of WDM activities to branch offices, and the strengthening GIS and leak detection units  In Ghana a WDM Unit has been established in the utility.  In Johannesburg a conservation and demand management strategy has been developed. 2.5.4 Impact in terms of real water savings. There are important amounts of savings here. Most African cities have UAW in the range of 50%; an international level is 12 – 15% and a „good‟ level is, say, 15-20%. The figures below note savings made in the cities under review water savings through WDM. These are not totally attributable to the WAC project activities alone but they show the potential.  In Dakar, losses of water fell from 31.8% in 1996 to 21.9% in 2001. The reduction due to the leak detection project at the University led to a reduction in losses of 300m3/day which has had a considerable incidence on billing.  In Addis, an annual reduction in unaccounted for water from about 40% to 32%. which was as much as (8%) of total annual production or annually 5,548,000 cu m.  In Johannesburg the saving has allowed delay in the construction of a proposed reservoir (the work went on prior to the onset of the Habitat project) 2.5.5 Impact in terms of money saved or „earned‟ through water savings have also been impressive:  Ghana - additional revenue is now accruing to the Ghana Water Company as a result of the metering exercise to monitor actual consumption at the University of Ghana, Legon. Previous water consumption was based on

7

Water for Africa Cities: A Forward Looking Assessment Margaret Catley-Carlson, October 2002

estimates which amounted to ¢ 74,000,000.00 per month. This figure has increased to about ¢ 345,000,000.00 per month after metering.  Dakar, with the residential properties belonging to the state; even though a financial evaluation has not yet been effected, there is a notable perception of reduced consumption which implies reduced leakage.  In Addis - The total cost saved cannot be attributed to the program alone. The part of cost saving resulted from the program could not be separately estimated. However, the total cost saved as a result of reduction of UAW is approached as follows.  Estimated annual water production 69,350,000 m3  Reduction in UAW (8%) 5,548,000 m3  Average cost of produced water Birr 2.60 Total annual saving from reduction of UAW Birr 14,424,800 (US$ 1,685,140)  In Lusaka, there has been substantial improvement in the collection rate due to the ability of LWSC to disconnect users (February 2000 14%, and November 2001 88%) The Environmental/ Water Source Protection Component. 2.6 This project component seeks ways of protecting the source water for municipalities, usually polluted by settlement patterns, solid waste disposal, faulty or non existent sewage arrangements. Again, it has taken many different forms of interesting and innovative components:  Johannesburg: a river assessment which could lead to a generic catchment management strategy  Addis: the government has now prepared a strategy for environmental monitoring of water resources  Ghana – new approach to river protection  Lusaka – a nascent aquifer protection program.  Kenya rapid assessment environment project:

2.6.1 Measuring impact. Environmental sustainability components are different by a whole order of magnitude from those of water demand management. More than one department is involved, community mobilization techniques are required, many different regulatory regimes and interests are in play. There appears to be general consensus that good and useful work has been done although as yet chosen project components have yet not made a change in the actual water quality of source water. Actual positive action will be much more difficult with jurisdictional issues seeming to be a principal cause. it is also the case that this general area is not necessarily most responsive to Government intervention.  The situation was really fragmented before…..after 2000 ideas really took off” “seeding project for new ideas and good channel for them to be disseminated”…. provoked a “fundamental change of water valuing and use”  South Africa: “The project did impact on awareness of environmental matters through the Klipriver project

8

Water for Africa Cities: A Forward Looking Assessment Margaret Catley-Carlson, October 2002

 Lusaka - “it brought stakeholders together. It is a local project with issues involving a cross section of stakeholders, so it is a programme that is in a strong position to call upon them to collaborate.”  In Ivory Coast the Habitat programme remobilized an existing group, helping it to become more operational so that the problems of information exchanges, data collection etc could be overcome. “ Since July 2002 we have tried to meet regularly which has given a lot of new impulsion in important areas related to the environmental impact of the Ebrie lagoon. Most important, under the Habitat project we have elaborated a strategy to attenuate the considerable negative impact on Abijan. It is particularly important to note that this has involved all of the relevant actors.” 2.6.2 Impact in terms of national funds leveraged – it is probably early days to expect such leverage in most places although  In Zambia the Government has undertaken to provide funding for the observation well which will allow monitoring of the pollution levels in the aquifer.  In South Africa there is a high level of political endorsement for the Klipriver water catchment strategy developed by the WAC project; this will very likely lead to funds. 2.6.3 In terms of the impact in terms of changed views and attitudes of decision makers it is possible to find general and enthusiastic endorsement for the project:  “. It “stirred up great interest in catchment generally Kenya” – “new bill will have more emphasis on water management”.  It has been noted by Johannesburg in this regard that especially amongst Councillors and community leaders there has been a dramatic increase in awareness …it set up the groundwork – had a program manager for a year – paid for by Habitat – quite a lot of political will.“. “Although our Catchment Management Policy was already developed, the project did give added impetus to such a policy through short term provision of additional project management capacity. “ 2.6.4 Administrative and managerial issues have had a fairly severe impact on progress in this area, particularly but not uniquely in Ghana. In other areas, the very complexity of working across jurisdictional boundaries appears to be the major stumbling block. Utilities have the major vested interest in finding solutions but may not have the staff resources, political clout or leverage to effect change in this area.

Impact within Africa outside the project area 2.7 Clearly the project has been well presented at a variety of international conferences and meetings. The City Managers express the strong view that the project should be replicated, especially in small and medium size cities. Close relations with the

9

Water for Africa Cities: A Forward Looking Assessment Margaret Catley-Carlson, October 2002

Director of WUP, the Water Utility Partnership, has been maintained. There has as yet, however been no emulation of the project components elsewhere in Africa. World Bank officials noted that there are very few traces of this impact outside of the vertical chain of those involved in the project itself… „the project is not yet leaving a footprint‟. This has very important implications for the next stages. Project Administrative and Managerial Issues There are some real problem areas. 2.8 The following comments do not disparage the work of the small team of Habitat officials who conceptualized and manage this project. These individuals are extremely hardworking and accomplish a great deal with few resources. The following comments refer rather to the total impact of the administrative approach of the Habitat Headquarters, indeed perhaps of the UN in Nairobi. It is indisputably the case that difficulties in this area have had a negative impact on the WAC project. This appears to derive from a fundamental mismatch between the needs of the project for funds to be disbursed in a timely manner for project components, and the payment and managerial system within UN Nairobi managerial systems which appear to be complex in the extreme and to be designed with a strong emphasis on control.

2.8.1 This issue was raised with senior managers within Habitat who offered no suggestions as to whether and how this overall framework could or would be improved. (The new Executive Director is a good deal more interested in these problem areas). Project staff spend large amounts of time simply provoking the system to act, or trying to fulfill inordinately bureaucratic requirements. A high percentage of those interviewed – but not all - indicated the need for a lot of improvement in this area, particularly with regard to overall management and financial administration. Instances of problems with delay arose in the majority of conversations.  Ghana consultant – two month delay in payment – he had to pay 45% in interest on borrowing to pay office charges  a stakeholder workshop funds promised in January not coming until June; No signed contract for Pollution control person – supposed to sign in August, not signed in January; “– water saving consultancy – took 8 months to get contract finalized –“  City Manager meetings: The meetings are “getting a little repetitive….our achievement level is low and slow so we keep going over and over same ground – IF money was flowing then activities would have taken place and reports much more interesting.”  Ghana: The Danida financed part of the Densu River environmental project has got going, but we have lost momentum on other part – „ it was important that both parts go forward together and they haven‟t‟  Ghana – momentum totally lost on education component – committee had not met or communicated since no new activities to report.

10

Water for Africa Cities: A Forward Looking Assessment Margaret Catley-Carlson, October 2002

 From a Donor: I have seen how the Habitat Coordinator in Dakar was struggling to get things ready. it seems that a lot of time is lost in communication between the administration based in Nairobi and the execution agencies (UNDP) in the different countries …. (only) at the last minute every thing is solved. Transfer of money to the city managers on a regular base should be easier. This control should be delegated to a third party if needed making things easier for Habitat.”  From a Johannesburg Councilor:…..administration has been a problem – the program manager story – we could never get it pinned down – reporting arrangements – told one thing, turned out to be another. The whole Partnership “got wobbly” - because of delays  Abidjan – difficulties in implementation caused by delays in getting funds in place…..  Dakar – need to reduce the slowness in actual execution of each project component.

Chapter III –Future Project Phases : Looking Forward  Development of new programme components, based on demands from cities  Further development of regional capacity for integrated water resources management  Guidance on improved collaboration with global programmes and other relevant regional initiatives  Expansion of programme activities to other countries/cities  Review and recommendations on the future programme management strategy  Establishing a broad based funding strategy

Programming Instruments and Programme Components 3.1 Programming Instruments. The following are based on recommendations from the existing programs. Most should be relevant for both the extension to African Cities, and to the Asian Cities program.  No real change should be made to the project conceptualization stage, the work done to define the problem, to gather the relevant actors together on the national stage and to get the programmes moving. This is very well seen.  Fact -finding building blocks, the intellectual contribution of the Habitat officers in project design and the approach to the multistakeholder dialogues are also appreciated keys to success.  Study tours – these are undoubtedly expensive but were found to be very useful, almost across the board. This is a community that learns by doing and by seeing. In Nairobi it was suggested that if funds permitted, City Councilors might be included in such visits to spread the messages.  Communication strategies should be an essential part of each city project and of each project component, building on the strengths of the first WAC project. These should initially focus on the internal transformation of the actors within the sector, and then move into the users/communities.  Published communication material o The newsletter, in particular highly appreciated, should appear regularly (a perception that it does not), and it is not recommended to merge this with the Asian Cities newsletter, there being little enough produced in Africa, about African solutions to African issues. o The Website is virtually not used by the City Managers. A brief canvas should be done to confirm that this is the case (people are generally shy about saying they do not use websites, but in this case they appear not to) and the results incorporated into the design, ie if the website is a great deal more relevant for visitors and scholars, it should be so focused.  The City Manager meetings, appreciated as a time for networking and capacity building, need to be managed differently, especially as regards the conduct of meetings. o The format and time allocation should encourage more discussion. o There should be much more scrupulous attention to agenda, timing

12

Water for Africa Cities: A Forward Looking Assessment Margaret Catley-Carlson, October 2002

o Meetings should be organized around discussion topics –progress reports are needed from time but should comprise less of the agenda. o Agenda should be grouped around short presentations focused on addressing real problems with question period following. o Use existing experiences for in depth “how-to” presentations. Some examples that might be useful (for illustration)  Addis Ababa – how communication was improved within AAWSA  South Africa : as part of the legislation – the development and experience with Water Services Development Plans

3.2

Programme Components.

3.2.1 Public Awareness Communication and Water Advocacy. Existing program assessors reported unanimously that this was the single most important program element to be added into each subcomponent and each city plan.  Start each program with a public awareness campaign. Conduct the program on regular and continuous basis  Partnerships could be formed before public soundings are taken with groups accustomed to social mobilization movements.  Professional publicists rather than project staff should be used where at all possible to take the step of making the info available. This has some funding implications but seems essential. 3.2.2 Water Demand Management. Although it strikes those familiar with the concept as an odd suggestion, serious consideration should be given to changing the name of this component. It is difficult to interest people in a concept as described by this title. This is a phrase used by water experts. Outside of this group, the initial impression is almost always negative. What is being targeted is water waste, what comes across is water availability - “Why should African families have to cut back on their water use?” Many Ministers and Councilors mentioned this. Some suggestions: Reducing water wastage RWW Water: Increasing System Productivity (WISP) Upgrading System Efficiency (USE), i.e, the water USE program.  (Under whatever name) the WDM process is the essential foundation stone of the WAC program. A 5-10 year continuing but modest scope program should be envisaged in each city  Start each program with a public awareness campaign. Establish water education program at enterprise level. Get the WDM ideas into the water management mainstream. .  Establish water week program for each organization/enterprise  Establish that there will be interest in/willingness to support City-wide WDM plan if pilot phase shows satisfactory results. (in city budgets or in requests to donors for example)  Form leakage control patrol, publicize results.

13

Water for Africa Cities: A Forward Looking Assessment Margaret Catley-Carlson, October 2002

 It would be very useful to collect and disseminate information on reliable low cost producers (if such exist) of taps and fittings for retrofitting campaigns.  University level course components across Africa based on Cities experience 3.2.3 The project should take on Water pricing and try to become a thoughtful, helpful and astute source for Ministerial and Mayoral decision making regarding better pricing policies in the African context. Billing losses inclusive of revenue collection is seen as a “number one problem –“with proper billing we could pay for all of the needs of the service”  Some ideas: put together a fairly quick pan African national pricing and billing survey (possible funding: Netherlands).  Have these presented in a discussion framework first at AMCOW, then at BOAD and ADB meeting and finally UA Ministerial meetings?? ie, move up beyond the Water Ministers to overall policy level. 3.2.4 Environmental Protection of Water Sources. This is a key sector. WAC should work with the existing City Managers to analyze whether and how it will be possible to move beyond the stage of problem analysis. WAC should promote the idea and the „how-to‟ of consultation with NGOs and community groups, especially environmental NGOs which have a positive record of mobilizing community action to obtain their suggestions. This might constitute the core subject for a City Managers meeting. (The cross over with the work with Asian Cities is clear). New alliances may well be needed here. 3.2.5 Sanitation – carpe diem The Johannesburg Summit momentum has and should continue to be seized to accelerate the work of Habitat and the 7 Cities. (see Grand Alliance, below). If such an approach is not adopted, increased financing can still be sought for enhancement of existing project elements.  Vacutug – this could be a good time to try to get new financing for this?  Regional seminars on wastewater re-use  Low cost techniques of sewage- workshops, professionalisation  Autonomous sewage techniques.- workshops, seminars. ……Two issue areas from the Asian Cities Programme 3.2.6 Introduce demand responsive strategies to give more influence to those currently deprived of water and sanitation. This involves helping utilities from the top down on the how to, and why to consult communities on the drinking water and sanitation facilities they can afford; and how to form alliances with community groups. 3.2.7 Pro poor investments in urban water supply:  how to create innovative public-private-NGO partnerships, again based on consultation, technology choice and new partnerships.

14

Water for Africa Cities: A Forward Looking Assessment Margaret Catley-Carlson, October 2002

 Gender impact – building on the gender paper produced in March 2002, and on the fact that there are many women in positions of authority in water utilities, pro-poor, pro community components such as have been incorporated in the community outreach objectives adopted by the Asian Cities, can integrate a number of gender specific preoccupations. 3.2.8 Rainwater Harvesting – although there appears to be relatively little demand for this technique in Africa, greater experience gained in the Asian cities should translate at some point into good learning opportunities for Africa. 3.2.9 Private sector participation. Many cities are very interested in having information about the process of negotiating with and managing private sector contracts. While the WAC programme may not have a comparative advantage in this area, it could play a very useful role getting existing information conceptualized and presented in a fashion relevant to city officials. (There is a real issue here in that worldwide, water service delivery is delegated to cities, with neither the financial wherewithal or legal/negotiation experience, which stays at national level. WAC but could work with others to put on seminars and workshops to help build knowledge and capacity in this area.) This could include seminars on various aspects of Private Public Partnerships, how they are organized, contracts

The Regional Program Extension - Time for A Grand Alliance? The success of this program should be built upon and a long term programme which institutionalizes these elements should now be created for other African cities. In particular, the Water Demand Management aspects of this project show sufficiently successful results in an area where the challenge is so immediate and important that far reaching strategic and alliance building work should now take place. The other two elements can certainly be added in, depending on interest but the WDM is the main selling point. 3.3.1 Among the existing city programs, there is a fairly strong view that the project ought to be extended to other African cities, especially into medium size cities where it is felt there is a strong potential to make a major difference. One possibility would be to design a program extension that mimics the current program in size and scope. 3.3.1.1 An in house planning session with the most senior Habitat officials should take place to see whether there is interest in trying to conclude a major strategic alliance to create a successful African continent wide program among countries willing to accord this activity some increased priority. Donors will be needed; new staff including senior staff might have to be taken on to organize such a campaign. 3.3.1.2 Administrative and managerial issues must first be addressed; new forms are needed. 3.3.1.3 A survey (not in depth and in tandem with other activities) should be commissioned to see if the potential for water saving is high in medium sized cities, and whether there is enough potential support/interest at the City Council

3.3

15

Water for Africa Cities: A Forward Looking Assessment Margaret Catley-Carlson, October 2002

level. This will backstop the appeals to others but should be done as quickly as possible. 3.3.1.4 The support of Ministers will be needed: efforts could start with the High-level (Ministerial) Advisory Group that has already support the WAC. Will they be willing to support the extension of the initiative to other African Countries? Would they support it in AMCOW? In the Council of African Ministers? WAC has already been specifically mentioned in the NEPAD initiative and this will need to be followed. 3.3.1.5 Strategies to get this concept inscribed within the list of African water priorities should be designed for all of the above levels: AMCOW, NEPAD, AfDB Governors. 3.3.2 A first approach would be to the African Development Bank and to the World Bank, sometimes perceived not interested in this type of investment. What support would they be prepared to lend to a continent wide initiative to improve sustainable water management in African Cities based on a model that works? Under what conditions? Could the project attract GEF funding? 3.3.3 The European Union has announced a major initiative which could extend to 1.4 b Euros; the USA has announced a major programme for Africa. Discussion – again at a very senior level - should take place to assess the potential for a multiyear program of support in this area. The EU are holding planning sessions now. 3.3.4 Support for the concept should be sought within countries: There is a role for community funding or big customers‟ role to support the program. If a decentralized approach is adopted then big customers can support the program by financing their own activities. 3.4 Improved collaboration with global programmes and other relevant regional initiatives. There are a great number opportunities, but time and resources are always involved. Some are sketched out in the section of Grand Alliance, others are mentioned in the Community outreach section. Expansion to new Countries and Cities. (for Africa see above) . This process is in fact now well begun. In April 2002, a meeting held in Delhi with city managers from some 15 Asian cities confirmed the interest and willingness of the city managers to establish a comparable network in Asia. The major issue areas signaled for in depth work both paralleled and differed from those which are the focus in Africa, specifically  Urban water demand management  Pro poor governance  Income generation for poor linked to water supply and sanitation  Integrated urban environmental sanitation  The project was given important impetus at the Johannesburg Earth Summit with a major input of financial resources from the Asian Development Bank.

3.6

Future programme management strategy Project Administration and Management must be accorded the most important attention since the continuing obstacles experienced by hardworking staff in this area threaten the successes of the current project and will accelerate as the programme expands into other cities of Africa and to Asia. New administrative/managerial arrangements should be explored that would allow the Habitat resources to be able to manage the totality of the projects underway: Water for African Cities, Water for African Cities (extension) Water for Asian Cities. Staff rotation in the countries, changing policy environments and priorities, and a weak administrative base in many countries have and will continue to complicate project administration. The task is to find mechanisms that can work around these difficulties, to the extent possible. It cannot be expected that the Habitat staff will simply „work harder‟ A more significant change in the managerial capacity at the Habitat end is needed for this project to complete its successes in this phase and to go forward in other cities of Africa and around the world. Specific suggestions re overall project administration:  Once the work of project conceptualization, project design, project accountabilities etc is finished, delegation of the ongoing administration, and payments disbursements to a third party  Establish with this third party project management rules and regulations which envisage bottlenecks as a result of different institutional responsibilities and, therefore, set up purpose built and efficient project management structures more likely to achieve the common project aims. (this is very difficult within the structured UN administrative frameworks)

3.6.1 Alternatively – but less desirably from the standpoint of liberating staff for project conceptualization work - it may be possible to explore the possibility of setting up a local project accounts to be administered by the City Manager or by a designated official. Once monthly expenditures are decided upon against project goals, these could be disbursed and accounted for on the ground. Signatories to the account may include the financial controller-WRC and any two of the three Task Managers. The task managers can give the signals for payment (what is being attempted here is not the removal of authority but the acceleration of administrative action once signals are given). 3.6.2 Current staff need more administrative back up and tools for their tasks. The current system is not fair to existing staff and is and will be even less so in the future an impediment to program efficiency  More administrative staff back up appears to be required.  The phone arrangements do not result in actual uptake. (The telephone numbers on publications were phoned several times over a several week period – nothing other than a answering machine loop was ever received)  The Staff need traveling computers – they travel constantly. This is not a luxury

17

3.6.3 National project leaders should be appointed: these can be part time responsibilities of consultants or existing officials. It would seem natural that that country manager be someone already senior in utility. This should include a little formalization of the City Manager responsibilities :as part of the contract of understanding‟ with Senior Managers, which need be only a very informal document or letter but should include  the relationship with other project elements, particularly the Education Component. It would seem a good thing, for example, for the education component to be used to bring the utilities and relevant parts of the departments of education closer together  whether a task management team will be appointed within each country. There needs to be clear lines of authority on the relationship of the project components within countries – are city managers „responsible‟ for keeping momentum going on education projects?  new financial and management responsibilities if these are decided upon.  obligations regarding at least a modest public awareness work plan per country to raise the political profile of WDR with specific calls on Ministers, Mayors, Chancellors (Habitat could ensure that this is seen as part of initial negotiation with country to facilitate such access for City Managers.)  a firm understanding regarding internal communication responsibilities of City Managers within their own utilities and governments. Results of Country Manager meetings should be circulated to the team at home and to relevant officials. 3.7 Establishing a broad based funding strategy. Fundraising to date has been energetic and quite successful, although it appears to take place only at the overall project level. The project enjoys a good reputation and this can be capitalized upon. For this project to go to scale, considerably greater efforts will be needed. The project could usefully put together a pragmatic and not too time consuming fundraising strategy, which could include the following elements.  The possibility of a Grand Alliance for African Cities – see above.  Routine Briefing of on the ground donors. The development programs within countries generally fund according to established targets and criteria. It would however be quite worthwhile for the 7 cities – and any expansion cities EACH to have a „donor day briefing‟ once a year to talk about their own accomplishments and plans and needs. Seeds thus planted often create their own growth; there are also small project funds which are sometimes available for workshops, publications, outreach activities etc.  Donor Governments  The Swedish Government has said that they will be interested in supporting the extension into Asia and the extension of the work to further cities in Africa.  The Dutch Government has given support for Asia, and the case should be made for their strong support for expanding the current WAC to new cities in Africa. They can be appealed to at an earlier stage than other donors as they are willing to fund the development of concepts.

 The Canadian Government has a new interest in water in Africa; initial contacts have been made.  Special fundraising for Public Awareness should be investigated with Foundations that specialize in this type of activity. The Swiss in the past have been interested in this type of activity).

THE MID TERM EVALUATION OF „MANAGING WATER FOR THE CITY OF LUSAKA‟
The overall programme strategy is to follow a step-by-step approach in developing and implementing a demonstration project for WDM and aquifer management in Zambia as part of a national programme. The following steps were envisaged: Within the national framework for Urban Water Demand Management, develop an implementation plan for a demonstration project covering (i) water demand management, and (ii) mitigating the environmental impact of urbanisation on the aquifer for Lusaka and aquatic ecosystems. Implementing the demonstration project according to agreed implementation plan. Documenting and sharing the findings of the demonstration project. Promoting the replication of lessons learned throughout Zambia as part of its national programme on Urban Water Demand Management.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY The linkages of the programme into the context of Lusaka have been slow but it is clear that they form an appropriate basis for consolidation, follow on activities and progression into the wider national aspects of concern. PROGRAMME ISSUES SOUGHT         A number of achievements have been made with regard to enhanced institutional capacity which have had a positive impact on the institutions involved Training opportunities are now available There are improved channels for region wide sharing through the Regional Outreach Programme, and lessons learnt are nearly ready to be disseminated more widely The plan is for WDM programming to influence policy, service deliver and attitude Consideration is being given to an effective communication strategy to focus on internal transformation of actors and the users Pilot projects are still in process, lessons are still being gathered, and then they will be disseminated Consideration is being given to a permanent coordinating forum within MLGH There is strong commitment to the ‘water education’ component

PROGRAMME OUTPUTS  Water Demand Management - LWSC WDM Draft Strategy - WDMU within LWSC - WDM pilot project activities Environmental Impact Assessment (Pollution Control) - Promotion of monitoring and early warning systems for aquifers - Implementation Strategy for a Community Based Aquifer Management Demonstration Project
