This is the story of an innovative aggregation model that emerged in Ceará state to support communities in securing reliable, efficient, and sustainable water supplies. In the state of Ceará, in Brazil’s northeast, extending water services in rural areas was a challenge. That is until the State Water and Sanitation Company (CAGECE) created the Integrated Rural Sanitation System (SISAR), an association of community-based service providers, in 1996. This story shows that when communities and water associations work together, it can make a big difference and transform people’s quality of life.
