Cost Recovery Planning: An essential tool to help schools ensure long-term success of WASH investments

School girls at assembly in Kenya

The WASH & Learn! programme has used Cost Recovery Planning (CRP) as a tool to improve WASH financing and sustaining WASH investments in schools. Cost Recovery Planning is an effective tool that enables schools to get an overview of all stakeholders (community, local government, local leaders, school management and pupils) with the capacity to implement, maintain and sustain WASH investment levels in the school before, during and even after the project ends. The tool creates space for the stakeholders to discuss, give ideas, outline strategies and procedures that could bring returns supporting the WASH investments.
