Indonesia: Community Water Services and Health Project
sector: Agriculture, Natural Resources, and Rural Development, Health | country: Indonesia
The project completion report (PCR) identified several lessons. These are not new and have been identified in many PCRs and evaluations, nevertheless, one is very important and this validation considers it justified to repeat it lest no lesson is drawn from the project – that beneficiaries must be involved in all stages of planning and implementation, and for a community-based project such as this one, community empowerment is essential. This validation notes that more needs to be done to enhance capacity at the local governments to sustain such community involvement.
