Piloting the process of developing WASH plans using LCCA in Andhra Pradesh
WASHCost (India) Project is piloting the process of developing WASH plans using life-cycle costs approaches (LCCA). The pilot was taken up in 9 villages of Dhone Mandal, Kurnool District, Andhra Pradesh. The pilot experiences revealed that the planning process is more complex than originally thought. The planning process demands several interactions between communities, professionals and government officers and local governance institutions. Several protocols need to be designed to ensure convergence, smooth fund flows, institutional arrangements, etc. This document captures the processes followed so far.
