We are a multilateral project funded by the Government of Nepal, the European Union, and the Government of Finland. The project area is located in Sudurpaschim and Karnali Provinces of Nepal. The Project began in 2006 and the current Phase III started in 2016. The scheduled completion year is 2022.
Our mission is to work with locals and municipal governments to achieve 100% Access to Safe Drinking Water Supply and Basic Sanitation. We also work for improving Nutrition and Rural Livelihoods of 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 into all project activities. We work closely with the Rural Municipality Administration and stakeholders for sustainable WASH governance as well as agriculture and nature based economic development.
Gender Equality and Social Inclusion (GESI), Local Ownership, Transparency and Accountability are core values of the project. They are integrated into all project modalities, activities, and implementation efforts. Our aim is to sensitise the population to stop the harmful tradition of menstruation huts (Chhaupadi).
