Pro-poor water supply and sanitation - Nepal

Less than 80 percent of the rural population in Nepal has access to safe drinking water while less than 25 percent use sanitation facility. Inadequate access to safe water supply combined with poor environmental sanitation and personal hygiene practices is among the leading causes of diseases such as diarrhea, dysentery, worm infestation, skin diseases. The The RWSSP Experience used a participatory approach including the non-formal education, hygiene and sanitation education and support to women' s technical training. This proved to have been very effective in empowering the communities including women and seem to result in strong community ownership.
