Project in short
We are a multilateral project funded by the Government of Nepal, the European Union, and the Government of Finland. The project runs in Sudurpashchim and Karnali Provinces of Nepal since 2006. The current Phase III started in 2016, and will end in 2022.
Our mission is to work with local people and Municipal Governments to achieve 100% access to safe drinking water supply and basic sanitation. We work for improving the nutrition and rural livelihoods of the local people by providing home gardens, income generation assistance, and by developing local cooperatives.
The project provides renewable energy for the people living in the poorest areas of Nepal, with a focus on micro hydropower, Improved Cooking Stoves, and Improved Water Mills. Climate Change Adaptation and Disaster Risk Reduction are integrated in all project activities. We work closely with the Rural Municipalities Administrations and stakeholders for sustainable WASH governance and agri- and nature based economic development.
Gender equality and social inclusion (GESI), local ownership, transparency, and accountability are core values of the project, integrated to all project modalities, activities, and implementation efforts. We sensitize the population to stop the harmfull tradition of the menstruation huts (Chhaupadi).
