This document provides a summary of the Sector Investment Plan (SIP) for the Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) sector in Liberia. The summary SIP has been produced to provide an introduction to the WASH sector investment plans – in the longer term until 2030 and in detail for the first five years as described in the SIP 2012-17. This summary SIP document is intended for sector stakeholders and the public in general to pro-vide an overview of the challenges, targets and funding needs in the sector. The current coverage with water and sanitation services is low and reaching the 2017 Sector Targets and the 2030 Targets of access for all Liberians requires large investments and decisive action. Action is needed on all fronts: completion of the institutional set up; capacity development at all levels; and increased funding. In particular urban services require major funding to reach the targets and achieve longer term goals of full cost recovery. Implementation challenges related to funding and capacity are presented, as well as steps to address these challenges. The final chapters include remarks on the action plan to achieve the implementation objectives laid out on this SIP. (Link)
