The Arsenic Mitigation Water Supply Project of Bangladesh had the following ratings: outcomes were moderately satisfactory, risk to development outcome was moderate, Bank performance was satisfactory, and borrower performance was moderately satisfactory. The lessons learned included: A) Arsenic mitigation needs to be mainstreamed into the water supply sector in order to be sustainable, focusing on innovative ways to deliver safe water supply in both non-piped and piped water supply; B) Decentralized community-based planning and management of rural water supply and sanitation with a central role for local governments has been demonstrated as a model for future interventions by the Government of Bangladesh; C) Supply of bacteriologically safe water should be the priority, not just arsenic-safe water; and D) The rolling out of pilot village piped water supply with significant private financing and management through carefully controlled and guided assistance from both the PMU and the Bank is a good example of field-testing and development of large-scale investments.
