Demand Responsive Approach. A project development and management approach in which community members make informed choices about whether to participate in the project; which technology and service level options they are willing to pay for (based on the principle that more elaborate systems cost more); when and how services are delivered; how funds are managed and accounted for; and how services are operated and maintained. When a DRA is employed, government plays a facilitative role, sets clear national policies and strategies, encourages broad stakeholder consultation, and facilitates capacity building and learning. An enabling environment allows participation by a wide range of providers of goods, services, and technical assistance, including private sector companies and non-government organizations. An adequate flow of information is provided to the community, and procedures are adopted for facilitating collective action and decisionmaking within the community.
