Rural Water Supply and Sanitation Fergana Valley Project (RWSSVF) Tajikistan


Direction du Développement de la Coopération (Suisse)

The Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) was engaged in the Fergana valley both in Uzbekistan and Tajikistan with the Regional Rural Water Supply and Sanitation project since 2007. Due to difficulties in implementing regional projects in Central Asia, SDC decided in 2012 to develop two separate country projects with a regional view. The overall objective of the project is to improve the rural population’s health and livelihood with sustainable safe drinking water and sanitation facilities as well as with the development of training for better household hygienic behavior

Pays/Région : Tajikistan

Durée : 01.01.2014 - 31.12.2017

Contexte : In Tajikistan access to safe drinking water is one of the key development challenges. According to estimations, 46% of the rural population does not have access to safe drinking water. About 70% of all infectious diseases are intestinal and most of them are waterborne and related to hygiene. Access to environmentally safe and hygienically clean latrines or sanitation facilities in rural areas is evidently insufficient. Knowledge regarding aspects of health and hygiene must be significantly improved trough training, in order to reach the targeted improvements.

Objectifs : The overall goal of the project is to improve the rural population’s health through sustainable Rural Water Supply and Sanitation (RWSS) and improved household hygiene and hygienic behaviour. It strives to build up a fully autonomous RWSS sector based on the promotion of decentralised management of water systems.

Groupes cibles  : 50.000 women, men and children in rural areas of Tajik Fergana Valley •Community-based WUAs, and their employees, which will act as operators of the newly constructed and rehabilitated systems, funded by the project ; •Hukumats and other district level government officials and decision-makers, civil society organizations and CBOs who will receive training and other capacity development support

Partenaires  : The tendering procedure led to the partner’s selection. SDC will sign a mandate agreement with ISW. ISW will subcontract SKAT, Consumers Union of Tajikistan and Human Rights Centre for the implementation of the specific project components.

Swiss Budget : CHF 5’100’000
Budget inclusive project partner  : CHF 5’100’000
