Milestones of Progress:

In the context of the implementation of the sector-based approach for the Water and Sanitation Sub-sector, an important ministerial decree creating a Sub-sector Committee for Water and Sanitation is in the process of development and will be signed in short order. A study trip to Burkina Faso for research and exchange of experiences was organized from the 9 to the 14 of March 2015 in that country which has a good experience of such an approach; it involved among other things the exchange of experiences concerning the implementation of the dialogue and coordination frameworks needed for the preparation, implementation and monitoring of the approach; the roles and responsibilities of the different actors of the sector in that preparation, implementation and monitoring of the sector approach.
