RURAL WATER, SANITATION AND HYGIENE (AFGHANISTAN)

Afghanistan

Titre : RURAL WATER, SANITATION AND HYGIENE (AFGHANISTAN)

Pays : Afghanistan

Durée : Jan 2016 – June 2020

Descriptif
Only 42 percent of Afghans have access to safe drinking water, and only 27 percent of the rural population have access to sanitation facilities, resulting in diarrheal disease that claims the lives of an estimated 85,000 Afghan children, under the age of five, annually. The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) partners with the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) to support the Afghan government and civil society to increase access to safe drinking water and community sanitation facilities, and improve hygiene practices in households, schools, and health centers for at least 525,000 Afghans in 17 priority rural provinces.

Activités
Partner with the Afghan Ministry of Rural Rehabilitation and Development (MRRD), the Afghan Provincial Office of Rural Rehabilitation and Development, and communities across Afghanistan, to construct, rehabilitate, and maintain safe drinking water systems. This includes comprehensive water quality testing, and increased use of metered water systems and reliable and low maintenance solar-powered water pumps, as well as gravity-fed water systems in place of traditional hand pumps. Partner with the Afghan government to construct water, sanitation, and health (WASH) facilities and implement improved hygiene in schools and community health centers. Comprehensive hydrogeological mapping for the WASH sector.

Budget  : $30 million
