The collective service model founded on principles of citizen participation is increasingly being advanced as a sustainable alternative to conventional service delivery strategies in Africa. Ambe J. Njoh looks at two collective potable water supply projects in Cameroon's Southwest Region: one a failure Mpundu (Muyuka), the other Bonadikombo (Limbe) a success. He suggests what can be learnt from a comparison of these two cases for alternative public service delivery models for resource-scarce communities in Africa.
