Abstract: The Phase II of the Volta Region Community Water and Sanitation Programme ended on l9 of December, 2003. Terminal evaluation of the project is necessary to provide inputs that could be used to improve future delivery. The Kadjebi District was studied. The objectives of the evaluation was to determine the extent to which the Volta Region Community Water and Sanitation Programme - Phase 2 has achieved its objectives, the effective use of the water and sanitation facilities and the sustainability of the water and sanitation facilities. The method of Participatory evaluation technique was used due to the Participatory Approach the Volta Region Community Water and Sanitation Programme Phase II adopted. The evaluation of the project has shown that the Volta Region Community Water and Sanitation Programme Phase II (VRCWSP Phase II) has achieved its targets in water supply and sanitation. It has supplied portable water to 25,018 people instead of the planned 23,000.00 people. Six hundred and eleven (611) household latrines were constructed for individual households instead of the planned six hundred (600). Thirty-eight (38) institutional latrines were constructed for educational institutions instead of the 20 planned. Furthermore, the water supply and sanitation facilities are being used effectively and the facilities are sustainable. The success factors are: institutional capacity building, formation of the monitoring operation and maintenance unit and the participatory approach the VRCWSP has adopted. However there is a threat to sustainability, i.e. WATSAN committees are not being rewarded by their communities. It is recommended that Capacity Building of the WATSAN committees and the beneficiary communities should continue as there is the need for a sustained operation and maintenance in all the Programme communities, Furthermore, the WATSAN committees have to be rewarded by their communities Since the water supply and sanitation coverage are not up to 100%, there is a need to continue the VRCWSP.
