Financial Performance (2) Emerging Strategic Issues • Prioritisation of programmes is critical to ensure maximum benefit and impact of reduced funding • There is a need to find ways of ensuring that Equitable Share is reported on by LG or accessing the information if available • The sector must reassess and quantify whether enough resources (especially funding) are invested into water sector programmes to lead to the desired state of water services • The sector must develop sustainable exit strategies (postdonor funding) for key programmes 5

Programme Performance Progress Highlights • Eradication of basic services backlogs Ø About 8140 buckets Programme Performance Progress Highlights • Eradication of basic services backlogs Ø About 8140 buckets must still be eradicated (lack of bulk WS infrastructure) Ø Basic water supply backlog is currently below 3 million people Ø Basic sanitation backlog has been reduced to 3 million households Ø About 500 schools must still receive adequate water supply facilities this year and 436 must receive basic sanitation facilities. The backlog is ____for sanitation and ____for water supply Ø Over 85% of the poor population receive Free Basic Water Ø Two bulk regional water supply projects completed, and over 35 are in various stages of implementation 6

Programme Performance (3) Emerging Strategic Issues • The basic water services backlogs are a Programme Performance (3) Emerging Strategic Issues • The basic water services backlogs are a moving target. This, combined with limited funding, jeopardises attainment of the 2014 MDGs • Civil society must be increasingly involved in finding suitable and sustainable solutions towards some of the challenges related to basic water services for households and schools 8

Local Level Service Delivery Challenges Issues for further debate and action • A recently Local Level Service Delivery Challenges Issues for further debate and action • A recently completed study on the state of Waste Water Treatment Works shows that most of the plants require urgent attention. The DWA and Co. GTA are working on an intervention strategy that will include addressing operational issues such as skills, operation and maintenance and bigger issues related to special funding of refurbishment, replacement, upgrading and rehabilitation 9

Local Level SD Challenges (2) Issues for further debate and action 1. The water Local Level SD Challenges (2) Issues for further debate and action 1. The water sector must engage on the findings of the “State of Municipalities Report” and propose suitable alternatives to the current configuration of local government – powers, functions, regulation, funding, oversight, etc. § § Is S 78 working? Is the WSP/WSA divide feasible everywhere? Are communities adequately involved in service delivery decisionmaking processes? Are the communication mechanisms working? The inputs must inform the LG Turn-Around Strategy 10

Local Level SD Challenges Issues for further debate and action • The roles of Local Level SD Challenges Issues for further debate and action • The roles of DWA, CGTA and Human Settlements must be clarified with regards to supporting and monitoring local water services delivery functions • Communities require water for both consumptive and productive use and this must be factored into service level decisions • Continuous councillor development 11
