Second Community Water Supply & Sanitation Project (2nd CWSSP) – Technical Assistance for Project Implementation in Trincomalee District

The Project was designed to assist Provincial Councils (PC) and subunit Pradeshiya Sabhas (PS) to facilitate Community Based Organizations (CBO) management towards providing improved water supply and sanitation facilities to selected Gram Niladhari Divisions (GNs) in two Provincial Council Areas. This component supports the Trincomalee district. The project objective targets decentralized implementation of Rural Water Supply and Sanitation (RWSS) activities to Provincial and Local levels and promotes a community-based participatory approach where beneficiary communities are expected to participate actively in decision-making at all stages of sub-project implementation. The community was represented by community-based organizations (CBOs) which will be fully responsible for construction, operation and maintenance of water supply and sanitation facilities. The Project consisted of four components, namely, (i) RWSS schemes in villages and estates, (ii) implementation support by Partner Organisations (POs), (iii) Program management and capacity building, and (iv) RWSS development in North and East Provinces.
