This project cycle was developed by the EU-Sida-GTZ EcoSan Promotion Project (EPP) in Kenya to provide a structured procedure to communities, clients, trainers and involved institutions in order to give clear roles and responsibilities of the involved partners as well as to ensure participation and ownership. All financial issues are managed by the support agency (SA) being the relevant executing institution being the Water Services Board (WSB) who receives the funds from the Water Services Trust Fund (WSTF). Alternatively such a project cycle can also be directly implemented by NGOs and donor organisations. The community based organisation (CBO) does not handle financial issues. The CBO acts as the grass-root implementing partner responsible to establish collective ownership of the process. The detailed project cycle with all the main planning and implementation steps used in Kenya by EPP is illustrated in Table A-1 and explained in more detail below. A similar project cycle could be used for other donor-funded sanitation programs. However the lessons learnt from EPP should be integrated.
