Monitoring WASH

The United Kingdom’s Department for International Development (DFID) has been working in Nepal on issues ranging from reducing political instability, enhancing economic growth and providing basic services to increase resilience to natural disasters. DFID is implementing an earthquake reconstruction project in four districts and providing support on infrastructure, housing, education, and water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH). After the 2015 earthquake, many water resources and structures such as water reservoirs, tanks, water intake, irrigation sources and facilities, public taps in communities had either been badly damaged or destroyed. The assessment undertaken tried to provide details on the current state of the available water resources in these affected communities. Based off on the assessment, DFID and its partner organizatons are working on schemes and plans to either build, relocate or reconstruct water sources in affected communities.
