COMPREHENSIVE WASH SUPPORT TO CONFLICT AFFECTED POPULATIONS IN YEMEN

Yemen

Titre : COMPREHENSIVE WASH SUPPORT TO CONFLICT AFFECTED POPULATIONS IN YEMEN

Pays : Yemen

Durée : 2018 -2021

Contexte : Yemen is suffering from the worst humanitarian crisis in the world, derived from over five years of active conflict. Fighting has caused significant damage to essential infrastructure, including water and sanitation systems and health facilities. Access to basic services has been drastically reduced against a backdrop of increasing rates of food insecurity, malnutrition, the reemergence of cholera, and near complete economic collapse. About 18 million people have limited or no access to safe drinking water, sanitation, or hygiene services. As of January 2020, cholera affected all but one of the 23 governorates in Yemen, with more than 1.2 million suspected cases since January 2018, including 1,543 deaths.

Objectifs
* Improved sustainability of WASH systems at a national and local level, through rehabilitation, refitting, and proper operation and maintenance by local stakeholders. * Increased resilience of community members to WASH-related illnesses

Descriptif
The Comprehensive WASH Support to Conflict Affected Populations in Yemen (CWS) project improves access to safe and adequate water supply and basic sanitation infrastructure for households, health facilities, schools. The project builds resiliency through complementary hygiene practices to maximize and enhance health-seeking behaviors among the most vulnerable communities.

CWS supports and improves sustainable environmental health conditions of vulnerable communities in Yemen by improving water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) infrastructure and service delivery. The project addresses the key challenges to long-term sustainability by enabling (a) behavior change, (b) community ownership, (c) local capacity to manage infrastructure, and (d) coordination between public and private sector stakeholders. CWS will reach 43,950 direct beneficiaries, targeting the most vulnerable communities over three years.
