Abstract: In order to reach the goal of Universal Primary Education, in many regions of the world there is a huge and urgent need and demand for both improved school building and renovation together with better maintenance. An innovative approach is needed to make school rehabilitation, construction and maintenance more cost-effective with communities being granted facilitation to drive the approach. BMB Mott MacDonald has successfully developed and tested such a new innovative approach drawing on the experience of the Andhra Pradesh Primary Education Project (APPEP) in India and has implemented the same in the IMBEWU Project in the Eastern Cape, South Africa and in the Faisalabad Devolution Project (FDP) in Pakistan.
