Triple-S Uganda

Triple-S, short for Sustainable Services at Scale, is an initiative to address the growing problem of sustainability of rural water supplies.

What is Triple-S doing?

The Triple-S initiative is about taking the best international thinking available, combining it with extensive Ugandan knowledge and expertise, and adapting it to the situation on the ground.

There is a lot that Ugandan water sector is doing well, and Triple-S is taking these positive examples to other countries. The challenge for Uganda is to identify and address the gaps and the obstacles that are holding the country back from achieving and sustaining 100% coverage. Triple-S is facilitating this process with staff from the Ministry of Water and Environment (MWE), district water personnel, private operators, NGOs, users, local politicians and opinion leaders.

This means looking at everything from financing mechanisms to improved back-up support and spare parts availability. It also means looking at where and how to invest sector resources to achieve sustainable benefits, a particularly important objective in light of declining sector investment.
