The poor sustainability of rural water services is well-recognized. Project-based, one-off and stand-alone implementation of water systems should be replaced with sustainable, large-scale approaches that actualize the philosophy of decentralized service delivery. One such an approach is the Community Managed Project (CMP) approach: it decentralizes service delivery by making communities responsible for the planning, implementation and maintenance of new water schemes, whilst district authorities provide capacity building and external support. The CMP approach is one of the four service delivery models for the development and use of rural WASH infrastructure in Ethiopia. Effectively it is an implementation modality which helps communities realise their WASH projects.
