The CPWF-supported project ‘Models for implementing multiple-use water supply

systems for enhanced land and water productivity, rural livelihoods and gender equity’

(‘CPWF-MUS’) innovated, tested, and documented homestead-scale and communityscale

models for Multiple Use water Services in 30 rural and peri-urban sites in 8

countries: the Andes (Bolivia and Colombia), Indus-Ganges (India, Nepal), Limpopo

(South Africa and Zimbabwe), Mekong (Thailand) and Nile (Ethiopia). Learning alliances

for scaling up and out of results were forged in each country, encompassing a total of

150 water user groups, CBOs, (I)NGOs, domestic sub-sector and productive sub-sector

agencies, local government, private service providers, rural development agencies and

financers, and knowledge centers. The resulting institutional change at intermediate and

national level, together with awareness raising about the MUS models at global level,

contributed significantly to a more supportive environment for reaching all water users

with the multiple-use water services they need and, thus, using water most effectively to

achieve all MDGs
