Abstract

This paper aims to present the recent developments resulting from the introduction of the program based approach (PBA) in the water and sanitation sector in Burkina Faso five years ago. After a brief description of the PBA establishment process, insight into the ownership by government and stakeholders is given. Moreover the degree of performance of the approach in terms of effective results on millennium development goal (MDG) targets is assessed. Finally the author explains how his organization, the German Technical Cooperation (GTZ), has developed new forms of cooperation to cope with this new environment and fill gaps that have appeared in capacity development.
