Targeted support to Rural Decision Makers to Improve Water Supply and Sanitation Services
This project is a component of the ECAP project, funded by the Finnish Embassy and implemented by the DRFN. The aim of this project is to create awareness about challenges and issues related to water and sanitation in rural communities, and to develop and implement solutions in close cooperation with representatives from local communities.
The project has the following phases: 1. To create awareness about the project among key stakeholders and to identify problem areas related to water supply and sanitation services in rural areas.
2.Request rural communities to submit information about their particular problems, and to provide possible solutions.
3. After review and selection of the projects that falls within what this project is able to implement, and with highest priority, the implementation will start. These projects are implemented in close cooperation with the local community, and involving technical expertise where required. 4. One of the first activities in a selected community will be to establish a baseline and a monitoring and evaluation system, which will allow the community (and the project team) to monitor the progress of the project and its impacts.
