The assignment involves carrying out a technical and institutional analysis of Zambia’s flagship WSS sector programs i.e. the National Rural Water Supply and Sanitation Program (NRWSSP) and National Urban Water Supply and Sanitation Program (NUWSSP). The objective is to identify opportunities for enhancing the effectiveness and outcomes of both programs, and to inform government strategies in the WSS sub-sector. The analysis will focus on five key areas: (i) strategic relevance and technical soundness of both programs, including issues such as rural-urban linkages, inclusion, health and nutrition; (ii) institutional arrangements and sustainability; (iii) expenditure framework for both programs, including sources of financing and opportunities for cost efficiency; (iv) program results framework and M&E capacity; and (v) economic and fiscal analysis of the programs, including an assessment of the hidden fiscal burden Zambia’s underperforming commercial utilities.
