About     This briefing note presents the capital and recurrent costs for point source water systems and small town water systems that were surveyed in Sierra Leone. A significant number of gaps in cost information however, still exist.

This Briefing Note is part of a series of notes that present findings and lessons learned from a WASH Cost study, undertaken by KNUST/IRC in Sierra Leone between 2013-2014. There are five briefing notes that, in order, focus on institutional and sector mapping; costs of providing rural and small towns water services; costs of providing rural sanitation services; costs and effectiveness of hygiene interventions; and water, sanitation and hygiene services in Sierra Leone. Methodologies used in this study included primarily the WASHCost Water, Sanitation and Hygiene service level ladders and the Life Cycle Costs Approach (LCCA).
