Cooperation across the water and sanitation value chain

World Water Day 22 March 2013 Butare, Rwanda

Integrated Water and Sanitation Service chain

Water stress in rwanda
Water stress in Rwanda

High growth path  But:

  • Demand

  • Contamination (waste, agro-chemicals)

  • Water source degradation (erosion/flooding)

  • Climate change

Water Resource Policy/Strategy 2012

Integrated water resource management adopted as framework for water development and management

Strategy for sustainable water and sanitation services
Strategy for sustainable water and sanitation services

  • Public Private Partnership Policy framework

  • Delegated management model

  • Inclusive water and sanitation services

  • Environmental responsibility and adaptation


Sustainable access to water and sanitation

Integrated water resource management luxury or reality
Integrated Water Resource Management: luxury or reality?

Inspiration in the value chain concept of Michael Porter

Expanding watsan chain responsibilities

Service / use






Expanding watsan chain responsibilities

Drinking water supply service

Integral water and sanitation service chain management

Production raw water
Production, Raw water


Raw water

  • The water sources: well, river, lakes, catchment.

  • Key actors: Water resource authority, farmers, tourists, industry, villages, local authorities, miners, water company, other water users.

  • Crucial capabilities: Water resource management, integrated territorial planning, long term thinking, water governance, multi-actor process.

  • Risks: catchment degradation, erosion, climate change, contamination, bad coordination among actors.

Transformation distribution

2 Potabilization Distribution

Transformation & distribution

  • Intake. Transport, storage, treatment stations, pumping.

  • Key actors: water supply operators, construction companies, supply chain (chemicals, inputs), finance.

  • Crucial capabilities: design, treatment, monitoring.

  • Risks: inappropriate technology, bad operation and maintenance.

Service use

3Service / use

  • Distribution to water points: commercialization, management and administration.

  • Key actors: water supply operators, regulator, banks, offices for payment, WASH support organizations.

  • Capabilities: system design, organization, administration calculation of tariffs, utility management, consumer relation-feedback, hygiene education.

  • Risks: inadequate management, inappropriate consumer practices (hygiene, payment).

Waste water

4 Waste water

Waste water

  • Non consumptive use at household or water user point. Mud pools around the house, untreated waste water at village level.

  • Key actors: households, water supply organizations, municipalities.

  • Capabilities: hygiene practices, waste water evacuation, water saving, demand management.

  • Risks: health (pathogens contamination) environmental contaminiation,

T reatment recycling
Treatment/ Recycling


  • Waste water use, recycling, ecological sanitation. Filtration pits, gardens.

  • Key actors: municipalities, water organization, farmers, nature.

  • Capabilities: water treatment, recycling, sanitation marketing.

  • Risks: inappropriate technology and operation, health , environmental contamination.

Iwrm in the watsan value chain
IWRM in the Watsan value chain

  • First step to use more specialized IWRM tools.

  • The concept applies to different scales: from household to system level.

  • It visibilizes the need for collaborative action

  • Different actors can be related to different links

  • Helps to identify core competencies of organization.

  • Introduces systems perspective to watsan.

  • Helps to identify problems and design action!

Gains of using the watsan chain concept
Gains of using the watsan chain concept

  • Stimulates to see the connections between links and its actors.

  • Appoints to higher system efficiency on long term.

  • Looks at preventive action: lower transaction costs.

  • Helps identify (business) opportunities.

  • Articulates with Water Safety Plan (WHO) and investment plans (addressing up-stream and down-stream issues)

  • Integrates sustainability into core business (water sanitation services).
