Sustainable access to water, and improved sanitation and hygiene behaviour in the three states of Sudan (Aqua4East)

Soudan

Titre : Sustainable access to water, and improved sanitation and hygiene behaviour in the three states of Sudan (Aqua4East)

Pays : Soudan
Lieu : Kassala, Red Sea, Gedaref in Eastern Sudan

Date : June 2015 – March 2019

Contexte : Access to water has always been a problem in Eastern Sudan. Rainfall is sparse and water sources few and far between. People (mainly women and girls) walk many miles each day to collect water. So water is used only for absolute necessities such as cooking and drinking and hygiene suffers. These are pastoral communites whose livelihoods are based on their livestock so finding water for their animals is a priority.

Objectif : To reduce poverty and conflict in Eastern Sudan by increasing access to water and sanitation.
